Charles Buchanan will be giving the Night Flights new proposal to TDC Friday 28th October (as if they haven’t had it for a while already!) and will be announcing the highlights on BBC Radio Kent – 96.7FM and 104.2FM and DAB.
BBC Radio Kent are having a “travel day” special on 28th October, and will be devoting 11am – 12 noon to Manston Airport. It will start with Buchanan talking through the highlights of the new proposals. I will be locked in a Radio Kent broom cupboard in Broadstairs with a mike and headphones, and being asked to comment on the proposals.
It appears that the proposals equate to an AVERAGE of 1.8 flights a night between 11:30pm and 6:00am.
If any of you have any experience of, or handy tips for, doing radio interviews, do let me know. Similarly, any sound bites (or good jokes) would be welcome.
It comes as no surprise to me that Charles Buchanan did NOT choose to announce these proposals at last week’s KIACC meeting.
