Monday: Huxley & Howe
Maddy : I’ve enjoyed a varied career and since retiring a couple of years ago I've been able to get involved in a number of local charities and projects and of course Wycombe Sound and the Huxley and Howe show! I am now a Trustee of Wycombe Sound Education and for Citizens Advice High Wycombe and I chair the Marsh and Micklefield Big Local. I live in the town and enjoy spending time with my family, being outside (love the seaside), travel, theatre and cinema and drinking cocktails!
Tuesday: Mick Lewis
Mick has been with Wycombe Sound since 2016 joining us on our 3rd pilot to help the Drivetime team with traffic and travel updates and then like us all he got the radio bug and has being presenting on a Tuesday afternoon for last 2 years and also setting up and helping out with Outside Broadcast. Before joining Wycombe Sound Mick was a driving instructor and utility worker and Soldier.
On a Tuesday Mick covers a various subject of interest both local and national. Subjects have included; Astronomy, Archaeology, History, Environment and Travel.
Wednesday: Clare Sherman
I have always lived in the local area. I have spent most of my working life in social care, but now can be found in a health food shop. I have worked on many radio stations, including hospital radio RSLs, etc , but my time this is the first time I have got a sense that there are any listeners! I like going to gigs, nature, all animals (especially my cat, Lucky!). All of these things get a mention on my show!
Thursday: John Murphy
John started broadcasting at a hospital radio in Ascot and has always enjoyed spending time rooting out music he's not familiar with and hospital radio gave him the added bonus of showcasing his discoveries to a captive audience.
Looking to his retirement he decided that he'd like to take up the microphone once again. Originally intending to volunteer behind the scenes at Wycombe Sound he was easily persuaded to take on a show for the station.
On a Thursday Afternoon with a focus on information about financial wellbeing and provides an opportunity for local business to showcase their products or services. Listeners can also sharpen their brains by joining in with the weekly brain training exercises whether that’s Word Hoodwink (how much do you know about the English language), Maths chain (testing your mental arithmetic) or Word Cross (solve cryptic clues to find answers). We also feature 45 at 45, celebrating songs originally released as 45rpm singles played at 45 minutes past each hour. At 3pm we take a break and play Sotto Voce (Italian for without words) or more simply an instrumental track to give listeners a chance to take some time out and refresh themselves. All the music played during the show is personally curated to ensure we have a breadth of music to suit a wide range of listeners, you never know you might hear something you’ve never heard before!
