A review of Cambridge 105 by Marcie Brown written on Sunday 18th of December 2016
If you want to get away from wall to wall pop on the commercial stations or the chatter on BBC local radio then this is the station for you. Always a different mix of music presented by people who live in and know the city - and during the day there is frequent local news reports and traffic updates, as well as interviews with local people and event organisers.
In the evenings they have an incredible range of music programmes covering all the different types of music you can imagine whether it's northern soul, metal rock, reggae, ska or just what the local bands in Cambridge are doing and all the shows appear to be presented by people who seem to know what they are talking about and really love the music they play. As well as that, if you ever go to one of the large events in Cambridge, like Strawberry Fair or the Mill road fair etc, they are not only there to cover it, but seem to be involved as part of the event itself.
At weekends there are some interesting review programmes - like "Flavour" that looks at the local restaurants, "Bums on Seats" (local cinema) and "Bookmark" (books by local authors) - and like most of the programmes on this station if you can't listen at the time of broadcast - you can always listen to it again through their website.
I have this radio station on in my house a lot especially when I get bored with the Telly. The only downside is the reception as you start to leave the city disappears pretty fast - unless you tune in on-line..
