Christmas crackers on air this festive season

Light Up A Life at Wirral Hospice St John's

Patients and staff in the health park will be able to delve into a sack full of special programmes from Radio Clatterbridge this festive period.

Our team of volunteers will be on air around the clock throughout Christmas and New Year.

Listeners will get the chance to hear this year's Light Up A Life service at Wirral Hospice St John's featuring interviews with those involved.

Following Paul Johnston's snow-covered Breakfast show, Dave Berkeley will be live from Clatterbridge for Christmas morning.

Keeping it in the family, Berkeley brother Ron then continues the tradition with his collection of mellow music to get through the lunchtime.

And you can listen with the nation to The Queen's Speech at 3pm during Andy Bonner's Afternoon Edition.

On Boxing Day, Phil Price will be in the studio with more of your favourite Christmas songs, a festive quiz and some vintage tracks.

After an 80s Christmas special with Gary King at midday, Andy returns with more festive facts from 2pm.

Christmas in the health park

We'll also be marking the end of the decade with a whole host of special programmes into 2020.

Heather Smith and Richard Holmes are live with laughter and chat on New Year's Eve from 10am.

Then our terrible twosome of Paul Allt and Geoff Peters take to the airwaves with their irreverent brand of humour and hits from the past 60 years.

At 2pm, Paul Johnston returns to count down the 30 most requested songs on Radio Clatterbridge during 2019.

Andy Bonner has hits and highlights of our programmes from the last twelve months from 4 o'clock before the Radio Clatterbridge New Year Party counts down the final hours to the midnight hour.

If you're not nursing a hangover you can re-live the music that accompanied some of the biggest TV hits of the past on New Year's morning with Dave Adams.

Then, at midday, Mike Eveleigh has a special edition of America's Greatest Hits as he plays the biggest selling songs from across the pond over the last ten years.
