Hi there folks here are our latest video uploads to YouTube and the Website :-

" Hands Of A Working Man " by Karen & Nigel Poll
" Just The Way Love Goes " by Chester & Jac

Just a few words to let you know of my latest project, as quite a few of you know, back in 1997 I ran a Country Music based Radio Station Called Don Valley Country this was aired on 87.7 FM on a trial basis,due to high running costs it was dissbanded and the station closed, all of the equipment has been mothballed at home for quite a long time with only the odd attempt to get it back on the air, but now because of the introduction of Internet Based Radio Stations it has given me the chance to fire it all back up again, we have signed up to a streaming company called Radionomy who cover all the costs of licences, copyright etc by placing an advert every now and then on the programming to cover everything for me, So DON VALLEY COUNTRY is back on the air playing Country and Associated Genres ie, Partner & Line Dance, bluegrass, cajun, Rockabilly, Skiffle, etc,it is a long process to get all the daily programme shedules done but at least whilst I am doing all that the station has a great Station Automation system with a very large amount of Country etc music in its database plus the jingles so I will be streaming 24/7 constant.  The station has a facebook group just search for Don Valley Country all the links are there to get you to the station,plus as the station schedule is generated it will be put up on there. As well as the website.  Radionomy also have an app in the app store download radionomy app and search for don-valley -country ( note there is a space before the hyphen in front of the word country ) You can find us direct on the internet via https://www.radionomy.com/en/radio/don-valley-country/index
There is also a website that you can play the station through just go to http://don-valley-country.playtheradio.com/

The Main Criteria of running the station is that the licence and all that comes with it needs to see a certain quantity of listenership to keep it alive so if you get the chance give the station a listen and let all your country friends to help me as well to keep the station on the air. Hopefully over the next few months it will all come together.
" Keeping it Country on the Airwaves with more Hat & Less Chat Don Valley Country."
Many Thanks Alan.

Here is our Latest Website Video uploads & Info:
We had been down to Baughurst in Hampshire to teach Partner Dances at C&D Sping Country & Western Festival 12th to 14th April run by Christine & Dave Stretch, Very well run & organised event over the weekend and enjoyed it very much, whilst there we taught 4 Partner Dances in all :-

" Another Night With You " by Bill Goodlad
" Cowboy Blues " by Alan & Sonia Cole
" Rollin' Home " by Alan & Sonia Cole
" One Like Mine " by Michael Schmidt

We have been asked to teach again for them at the April Event in 2020, details will be posted in our DANCE HOLS & FESTIVALS webpage as soon as we have them, details of the two other events that Christine & Dave run in July & August are already on the webpage.

The radio station that I am involved with Move-Radio.com now has a new website making it easier to listen to the shows , just click on the little dancing man just below the Listen Here sign. Whilst working at C&D Festival the DJ Kerry Watts proved to be a very adapt DJ and after asking him he has agreed to join Move-Radio as a presenter, if there are any other budding DJ's out there would like to try their hand at having a show or two on the station just e.mail me at alan.sonia@btinternet.com and we will give you the info you need to join us. the station is dedicated to dancing but not only country, but rock & roll, disco or any other form of dance that you are interested in would be great to add some diversity to the shows. There is now a programme schedule on the front page of the Move-Radio Website listing all the times and shows that are on there, when there are no live presenters on air previous shows or a mix of music is played in between. My shows are on air Saturday & Sunday Morning between 10.00am & 12.00am.

Happy Dancing
