A new daytime schedule for Preston’s community radio station comes into force from Monday.


Preston FM, which broadcasts to the city and South Ribble, sees Hughie Parr move to the 9am slot.

Parr, who used to host Chat City, has his Simple Breakfast with showbiz news, weather and traffic updates throughout the morning.

Hughie has promised to begin his new show with a festive track, but he won’t say what it will be.

He said: “I’ve had lots of requests from listeners, everyone’s been joining in the guessing game on our Facebook and Twitter.

“Will it be the Manic Street Preachers The Ghost of Christmas? Stop the Cavalry by Jona Lewie? Or something more traditional like Slade or Mariah Carey? Who knows!”

A newcomer to the station, John Nichol, moves into the 11am slot.

Nichol will have his regular feature Fact or Fiction at 11.40am and i joined on Wednesdays and Thursdays by Millie Lavelle.

She said: “It’s going to be great to be part of the mornings team on Preston FM, although being a Mum then 11am kind of feels like an afternoon.”

From 1pm the station moves into the hands of Preston FM old-timers Dave Chambers and Gary Cunliffe and their Afternoon Tea show. They play classic tracks and chart hits.

DJ Tim Melia takes over from 3pm to 4pm with The Old Skool Mix before LJ takes over for The Big Drive Home from 4pm to 7pm.

Preston FM’s specialist shows take over from 7pm with different shows every night of the week.
