Karen Woodham and Will Tomlinson-Roberts, who present the mid-week and Saturday shows, will be attempting a non-stop 24-hour marathon fundraising radio show, at the Ty Pendre Studio in Prestatyn, starting at 9 am on Saturday 5th October, all the way through to 9 am on Sunday the 9th.

Karen and Will's 24-hour marathon will be raising funds in aid of the community station and various local charities.

Phase Radio Wales was launched in January 2019, since then, the station has built up a following in the Prestatyn Community, as the 'go-to' station for local information, upcoming events, and promoting local businesses and charities.

Phase Radio Wales, has a selection of shows with various presenters from the area and further afield, bringing their own style of presentation and music to the station.
With their own unique 'whacky style', Karen and Will have been quoted as being “the Craziest Radio Show on the North Wales coast” and “the show to listen to, to brighten up your day and bring a big smile to your face”.

Karen said, “Having a show on Phase Radio Wales is an honour, and to be able to work alongside some great fellow presenters at the community radio station not only makes it fun, but also a pleasure to be involved with such a great team. Will and I have our own style of show that has become much loved and enjoyed by our listeners.”

Will said, “I am honoured to be given the opportunity to be involved with community radio at Phase Radio Wales. The experience I have gained from co-hosting with Karen has been invaluable, and Karen is a pleasure to work with, as are all the other fantastic presenters and volunteers who manage the station. Our unique style of show is fun and quite different from other shows and really enjoyed by our listeners.

Graham Bevins said, “Phase Radio is lucky to have such talented and crazy presenters, who are mad enough to go without sleep, to bring us a fantastic itinerary of events packed into a 24 hour period. Karen and Will's dedication to the station is superb and it's great to have them on board.

Karen and Will have been joined by some amazing guests since they started their mid-week and Saturday Shows, including MistaFunk and the Deadbeats, Ed Evers-Swindell (director of Dark Signal), and the team behind the upcoming movie ‘Me, Myself and Di’. They also have more exciting guests lined up for their upcoming shows, including local band The Montagues and CELAVI, who are both appearing soon on their Saturday Showcase, that puts local and upcoming bands in the spotlight.


The 24-hour show, will include past guests popping in for a catch-up and showing their support, as well as some new guests to join in the fun. Costa in Prestatyn have kindly offered their support for Karen and Will, promising to supply plenty of coffee to keep them awake, as well as Judith Bond Cakes who will be supplying delicious treats for them and their guests. We also have some auction prizes kindly donated by The Art of Fish and Going Potty with Sam.

It promises to be a fun-filled 24 hours to remember! If you would like to support/donate to the 24 Hour fundraiser, then you can pop in the studio or head to the GoFundMe Page. The show starts on 5th October 2019 at 9 am.

The Montagues New Single, Video and Saturday Showcase

On the Karen Woodham show on Saturdays, Karen and Will like to introduce their Saturday Showcase, a part of the show that they "showcase" a band that they have been blown away by, this week's Saturday Showcase has gone to The Montagues, the 4 piece North Wales band that Karen and Will have been shouting about for weeks.

This week The Montagues were chosen because of the brilliant new single and video taken from their debut EP.

Nothing to Everything is the second single from the EP and is certainly a track that shows the diversity and power that the band can produce, The Montagues formed in late 2018 with Jack on Drums, Mike on Guitar, Jon on Bass and Kyle on Vocals and Guitar, the guys are a band that has a punchy drum bass-driven riffs feel with what can only be described as stadium-sized choruses that are a not only a delight to listen to but are well constructed for the musical style.

The video for the new single release looks amazing and here at Phase Radio Wales we love it, it's such an honour that the band sent over the new single for Karen to check out and to play on Phase Radio Wales, a worthy entry for the Saturday Showcase.

If you would like to find out more about The Montagues then check them out at Facebook, twitter - @montaguesmusic, Instagram - @montaguesmusic and soundcloud.com/montaguesmusic.
