Friday Night Extra 8.9.17 with guests Moira & Daria talking about The Hyve Dance & arts festival.

We welcomed organiser Máira and dancer Daria talking about the festival happening on the 17th of September in Hylands Park between 10 am – 10 pm. This will be an amazing event for the whole family. Dance workshops, battles, cinematography room, food and drinks, casting agency room, fashion shows and pop up shops. Workshops led by internationally recognised teachers in a wide range of genre, including Hiphop, Bollywood, House, Ballet, tap, Latin, jazz, popping, whacking, Irish etc. Moira told us how an idea a year ago had grown into a huge event, with some people flying in from San Francisco to watch the dancing. Daria had only been dancing for a year. She had flown to Paris for special lessons and enjoyed seeing the Eifel Tower. She is featured in the YouTube video about the event.  More information, including how to take part on the website You can e-mail for details

About Patrick Sherring

As a child I listened to the pirate radio ships, particularly Radio London on 266. I loved the romance of the DJs playing the latest music for the listeners to hear. After most of the pirate stations closed in August 1967 I used to listen to Fabulous 208 Radio Luxembourg, the continuing Radio Caroline, Radio North Sea International and Radio 1. I particularly enjoyed listening to radio in the evening and at night. One of my favourite shows was Late Night Extra in the early days of Radio 1. All kinds of guests would just turn up and be part of the show. As a listener radio should feel like a friend is talking directly to you. I dreamed of being on the radio for many years. In 1988 I began on Hospital Radio with Radio Enfield in north London. I had my own request show and used to commentate from Spurs and Enfield F.C. home games. I was also part of the Radio Enfield Roadshow team, taking part in many outside broadcasts. Now I am delighted to be on Phoenix FM, where I have had a Friday show since May 2011. On the show there are a mixture of musical genres. Often there are guests giving lengthy interviews on a wide range of topics including faith and social action. There are also some live music performances. This little boy's dream has come true!
