The Christmas Lights Switch-On Live on Corinium Radio – Friday 30 November 2012

Every year at Corinium we do a live OB [Outside Broadcast] from the switch-on of the Cirencester Christmas Lights.

This year, we had a special 2 hour show (5pm to 7pm on Friday night). We tested the mobile phone link to the studio during the Hot Off the Press programme, during which Cameron and Harry were broadcasting live from the Cirencester Christmas Market.

Unfortunately, the volume of people in Cirencester for the switch-on on Friday evening meant that the mobile phone networks were not functioning as well as they should have been when it came to the switch-on.

So, with two minutes to go before the switch-on was due, I went out in to town with a digital recorder, pressed record and simply said what I saw.

Here’s the result:


We then played it once I’d edited it and loaded it on to the studio computer.

We also had a live interview with the Fabulous Baker Brothers, and Ethemia played live in the Corinium Radio studio – you can listen to them both on the Corinium Radio website.

And if you want to listen to the full show, that’s available here as well:
