Care Radio UK Contributors
Care Radio UK is honoured to be working with a wide-range of professionals from many sectors who contribute to the radio station on a regular basis.
The Young Carers Take-Over
There is an estimated 166000 Young Carers across the UK (Source: Carers Trust).
Every week, Care Radio UK dedicates a programme to give them a voice. However, what’s unique about this is they take over the station. They decide on interviews. They decide on guests. They decide on Presenters. They decide on music.
Care Radio UK is looking for Young Carers across the UK to take part on a weekly basis.
Not only is this a respite opportunity but it’s also a chance for young people to learn new skills, make new friends and share their experiences to help other Young Carers. And you never know, we may find one or two future broadcasting superstars as well!
Wayne and Jimmy – Unplugged
Wayne Douglas O’Hare and Jimmy Smart are two Scottish taxi drivers by day and two extremely talented entertainers by night! They are also Carers.
Initially famed for entertaining their passengers and live audiences in their hometown of Dundee, Wayne and Jimmy shot to fame after TV executives saw their performances on social media and invited them to star on a Saturday night primetime television programme. The nation took them to their hearts and now the Singing Cabbies are in demand all over the UK and beyond!
Wayne and Jimmy – Unplugged is a monthly show in which they invite Carers and those they care for into the studio and perform live for the audience. The programme is full of laughs, lively chat, some very special guests and live music.
Like all Care Radio UK programmes…this is one not to be missed!
