Craigyboy is a 32-year-old that has done many years in radio for many different stations. One thing Craig is really fussy about is the quality of the sound his show brings. A huge amount of time (and money!) has been spent ensuring we make the best sound possible. Most of the imaging (jingles) you hear on the show has been made by Craigyboy himself ensuring the whole show package is tailored to suit Craigyboy style.
So more about Craig, well he lasted one day at Hospital Radio, let's just say there are a few 'chancers' in that field! I am really hands on and I couldn't cope with starting from the bottom, that is what you get for spending many years messing about with computers and radio equipment teaching yourself I suppose!
One thing I have taken from all this, is that radio is a very hard game to get into! I hold my hands up to anyone that has got a job in radio. I'm lucky in a way as I've got support from some great people and friends who, like me, have all tried different things in radio to further their career. My best friend Aaron has been a massive part of this setup and technical parts. He is a fellow presenter and a self-confessed computer geek(!). He is the man who hosts the show technical side & website plus my 'go to' guy when I need to discuss the next steps of furthering the show. For that reason, I owe him a massive thank you!
Right enough about me, if you want to know more please ask, I don't bite(!).

About The Syndication
White Label / Split Branding
Multiple Stations On DAB, FM & Online
The Big Saturday Night Show is broadcast using one feed, one studio and one presenter. When you sign up to take the show for your station you will be sent a feed link that you can add into your playout software to start listening at 20:00:00 (If your station has news, we start with an intro jingle that last 2 minutes so you can take the show from 20:02:00) the show finishes at 23:59:59 to allow for news or whatever your TOTH is.
What makes us unique is that stations can have their jingles used in the show as a white label package (split jingles). You can send your own jingle to Craig and he will use them in the show live but only to go out to your station - some editing of station jingles maybe needed to fit but we can discuss this directly
The primary aspect of the BSNS is that it's live and therefore contact can be made to the studio. We give mention, host features & invite song requests. In addition, all the shows are recorded so not only can listeners catch up, we can offer the show to your station as a recording. This is one week behind the live shows but no time checks are added to the show (except for major breaking news).
The show is part of a series of live shows which includes all the features stated above, on our periods of time off we stream a Jukebox show which is the same show as normal just no live presenters on the night of broadcast. Listeners can still join in with the features and send in answers via Facebook and twitter & you might get a answer back from Craigyboy. This means you will need to do nothing on your stations as it will just flow like a normal live show. The live shows will then return and the cycle continues.
