Do you remember that feeling you used to get when you
were five and it was just before your birthday? That
butterflies in your tummy,look-at-that-huge-pile-of-presents
-covered-in-pink-bowskind of a feeling?
Ok, well if you're male pink bows may not have
But the point is, that's how it feels at FM107.9 at
the moment. Big boxes of brand-spangly new equipment
are arriving every day. Empty space is being turned
into streamlined offices and every now and again you
wonder how many sleeps it will actually be until
JACK fm finally launches in Oxfordshire.
It's going to be big, beautiful, bootilicious...
and it'll probably still smell slightly of that new
plastic smell you get when you unwrap a large and
expensive birthday present.
Not only will you get toe-tapping, spine-tingling,
beat-tastic music. JACK fm will also keep you wham-bam
slap up to date.
So it's the perfect present really. Fun and useful.
It won't just sit on your shelf looking pretty and get
thrown out next clear out. You'll be hooked because
you'll want to know...
You'll want to know what's going on here in
Oxfordshire and how you can get involved.
You'll want to know about the bigger picture too...
about politics, about the big news stories of the day
and about what everyone's going to be talking about at
the office and in the pub.
You'll want to know if you can get to the office or
pub without getting stuck in traffic, so we'll have an
exemplary travel service to make sure you're ahead of
You'll want to know about the game too, so we'll be
pitch-side and track side for all the sporting events
that matter to you.
And if the environment and weather matters to you
we've got that covered, along with everything you've
got a hankering to know about your local community
(everything bar actually twitching those net curtains
- you'll have to do that yourself).
We'll also fill you in on what's going on with music
events and festivals....but we won't bore you with
what Britney Spears had for breakfast.
So if you want to be at the cutting edge of radio in
Oxfordshire, nay, the UK, you know what to do.
Watch. This. Space.
Right, I'm going to go and buy a brand new party frock
for the occasion. JackFM is coming soon.... and yes,
there will be balloons.
