A new show on Radio Fox – Arran Smith’s Pick-n-Mix

02 March 2017 – A brand new show with a brand new presenter begins Friday 3rd March on Radio Fox.

Starting Friday 3rd March from 11pm until 1pm Radio Fox’s newest presenter Arran Smith presents Radio Fox’s newest show.  It’s called Pick-n-Mix… it’s part request show, part phone in, part fab music, part jolly banter.  In fact it’s a box of musical allsorts. Listen Live to Andy Valentine from 9am, Arran Smith from 11pm and Johnny Kershaw from 1pm – from breakfast to afternoon tea on Radio Fox. Yummy!

Mr Fox goes a-rocking

27 February 2017 – On Saturday 25th February Radio Fox presenter Jonny Bance played host to Leicester group The Heartland Roots Band.

We’re not sure how Jonny Bance managed to get a 6 piece band into the rather small Radio Fox studio but somehow he managed it.  The Heartland Roots Band play a mixture of Americana, Irish and country rock.  You can listen again the whole Jonny Bance Saturday Show with his guests The Heartland Roots Band by clicking here.
