Erewash Sound is delighted to announce that the radio station made front page headlines today!

As part of an ongoing strategy to promote aims to secure a full-time licence, the Long Eaton Advertiser ran a recent press release on the front cover of today's edition under the headline PERMANENT RADIO BID encouraging townsfolk to support station plans. We're naturally delighted to receive support from the local press in this way, and we'd like to express our thanks to the editorial team of the Long Eaton Advertiser.

The appearance of an open letter in the letters page of the Derby Evening Telegraph recently, (as also submitted to the wider press) plus the effects of the front page headline has resulted in a stream of support letters, e-mails and other messages of support. Thank you! This can only add additional weight to our case and pending application for a full-time licence, but don't stop there! We want as many letters of support as we can possibly gather by the time we submit our application - so keep them coming in! We'll keep you posted on other developments very soon.


Borrowash Methodist Church Hall was the venue for another of the very popular OCKASH Trust Quiz Nights this evening. The Trust works within the communities of Ockbrook & Borrowash, by raising money for underprivileged young people through a variety of fundraising events as well as others arranged simply for the benefit of the community, In a new venue, the 2007 Quiz Night also included an interval meal of Chilli or Jacket Potatoes, all washed down by a soft drinks bar. A total of 11 teams took part competing for the Ockash Trust Quiz Trophy in the event which was compered by Erewash Sound presenter Ian Perry, with Dan Martin & Nick North looking after the sound system for the night. A raffle and Ian's occasional forfeits for overdue answer sheets and other minor misdemeanours plus team entry fees led to over £200 being raised for the Trust, with the help of members of the congregation of Borrowash Methodist Church.

The 2007 Quiz was won by the 'Histericals', including members of the local Historical Society. It was a close run thing, but the winning team held the lead for most of the 10 rounds of the competition which included a range of subjects in which teams could elect to play a joker with the chance to double points scored in that round. Speaking after the event, Ian said: “Once again, Erewash Sound is proving its true credentials in playing a key part in the community it serves, helping to raise money for worthy causes and having a bit of fun along the way. This is a just small demonstration of how a truly local radio station can benefit the community, working and bonding with the community in a way that no other radio station can. I was delighted to be asked back to act as Quizmaster for yet another year, and really enjoyed the atmosphere in the new location'.
