"Listeners requests on live radio"

My job entails a fair amount of travelling. Between my visits, I listen to Classic FM as it both relaxes and entertains me. I particularly enjoy the listener’s requests as the stories of why the request is being made can be amusing and it is interesting to discover other people’s tastes. The other bonus is serendipity I have discovered pieces of music and composers that had hitherto been unknown to me and now give me great pleasure. The show is sensitively compiled and presented by the production team and the presenters with the introductory dialogue and dedications being given at appropriate times.

Classic FM is a radio station that broadcasts on both digital and analogue radio also through sky digital on the following frequencies: 100 to 102 FM, on DAB Digital Radio and Sky Digital channel 856.

The station plays a wide range of classical music. There are three shows that are geared to play requests. These are: Lunch Time Requests with Jane Jones. This airs between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. each weekday.
Saturday Requests with Jamie Crick. This also airs between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. but on Saturdays only.
Sunday Requests with Jane Jones each Sunday between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Requests can be can be made using four different methods. By completing an email request online. Just type in your request details and send to email requests@classicfm.com. By text on 07870 150 100. By letter to Classic FM plc,7 Swallow Place, Oxford Circus, London, W1B 2AG. Or by phoning the Radio Station during the show on 0845 7 49 1812.

The first three types of requests are read out by the presenter. The telephone request is often broadcast live.

My husband once placed a request for me thinking I would be listening at that particular time. Unfortunately I wasn’t and missed it. He has never made another one.
