New show on Exeter’s Phonic FM promises to be out of this world.
Two top DJs from Exeter’s community radio station Phonic FM 106.8fm have teamed up to bring the listening public a show centralized around Doctor Who and the world of Science Fiction.
The Phonic Screwdriver, presented by Lee Rawlings and Simon Brett, will be airing live on Saturday May 5th, 2012 and the first Saturday of every month thereafter.
It promises to deliver interviews, music and interactive chat that fans of Dr Who, Cult TV, Films and other areas of SciFi have not had in the Devon area before.
They also co-host the hugely popular Blue Box Podcast for legendary SciFi Magazine, Starburst (available on iTunes for free).
Lee comments: “We are excited about airing to our wonderful city of Exeter through the FM range but what’s even more exciting is that we are live globally via our website, just go to www.phonic.fm and click listen.
“We also believe this is a first for fans of this genre as we have yet to be told that there is another radio show entirely devoted to Science Fiction playing live on the FM frequency.
“There are hundreds of podcasts on the Net but none of these are live and be as interactive as us.
“We will be using Twitter feeds and Facebook chat as well as the good old telephone of course.”
Simon said: “The show has already accumulated over 220 members on Facebook and it is still in its infancy.
“We feel we have a lot to live up to and will do the best we can to entertain listeners.
“There will be a high spirited fun quality to the show that shouldn’t alienate the casual listener.
“We are self-proclaimed nerds but our radio show is open to all everyone!
“Remember that the highest grossing films are nearly always science fiction or fantasy based. We all need an escape sometimes, so escape with us on Saturday nights one a month.
“We thank Phonic FM for taking the plunge with such an odd premise but we hope they will be proud of their newest addition to the many great shows already airing.”
The Phonic Screwdriver airs on Phonic FM 106.8fm at 10pm on Saturday May 5th, 2012 and every first Saturday of the month thereafter.
