Radio Christmas

Radio Christmas began in 2008 with the idea of providing a festive charity radio station to the local community of Amersham in the UK and raising funds for the projects in Central America working with vulnerable children.  The first few hours of the station´s output went as planned but with very few volunteers initially, it became clear that the same presenters and the same technical crew would have to work very long hours.  However, word quickly spread and within two days almost all the schedule was filled with volunteer presenters, technical operators, newsreaders and general help in the office.

The station was situated in a garden shed in the home of Nigel & Alexis Curson in Amersham and also offered an online streaming facility and app, something that was still very new for the majority of much larger and professional stations.

Since those early days Radio Christmas has grown into a very popular festive radio station around the world with listeners tuning in from 140 countries and helping to raise funds for street-living and high-risk children and youth in Central America.
