County Sound Radio - The Best Songs of all Time

When Country Sound was known as Country Sound it was also known for presenter Dave Johns interviewing celebrities live on air, some of the big names included Tony Christie, Judy Collins and Joe Brown.

The radio station would provide entertainment all day, all week for its many listeners. Every day a breakfast show would be performed with "the best songs of all time" playing for the rest of the day.

The Team

This county based radio show was predominantly made up of two teams; the presenters and the news team. The main presenters were Dave Johns, Steve Dean and Stuart Provan. The news team would often be joined by representative of local organisations, community groups and journalists.

It Gets My Goat

A segment of the radio show that will be well known to frequent listeners was "It Gets My Goat", a place for the public to go to when they have something that annoys them so much, they have to share with the many other listeners of County Sound. These stories would be anything from hosepipe bans to supermarket queues, the everyday irritations which just can't be ignored.

Advertising

Due to this radio station being aimed at a specific geographic, local business' would often go to County Sound to fulfil their advertising requirements. So although many listeners will get annoyed at the recent hits getting interrupted with adverts, it was effective as the local suppliers met the local demand.

Eagle Extra

In 2012 County Sound became Eagle Extra, a sub-radio from Eagle Radio which is more community based. This differs to the main station Eagle as it discusses local news and updates from the local borough councils.
