Radio Royalty

entry picture

Be a radio king or queen

You'll be heard a lot more than you're seen

Let us hear your diamond voice

As you recite a verse of your choice

The topic is the Jubilee

Were you there for the major three?

Are you a corgi, a horse or a jewel?

What would happen if YOU made the rules?

Write, record and let me know

To get featured on my show


Calling all budding poets and prose writers! I work on a community radio show in Manchester & I'm planning a show for Sunday June 5th around the Jubilee so if you have any memories or experiences that you remember from a previous Jubliee such as  a 1977 or 2012 street party, or a just a little quirky but clean piece on what you would do if you were royalty send me a message📻 👍

Hi Ruth

I didn’t realise you wanted recordings. I don’t like to read my poems out loud, I know that sounds a bit daft, sorry. Thanks for the offer though. Jx

Thanks so much Julie & John.

Julie if you could record your poem and send me the file or upload it here I can retrieve and play it for you☺👍

Thanks a million for your kind words John. It would be an absolute pleasure as always to feature your work, be it real or imagined!

My e-mail for anyone to get in touch 🙏

Yes. Hope your show is epic! How can it not be with you in charge!!!
I will do my best to dredge my memory, Ruth. Alcohol has tended to blur these occasions in the past but I'll use my imagination.
All the best to you and your station.😀💪👍
