Today`s better music mix, local news and information.
Trent FM 96.2 - 96.5 FM is a radio station which broadcasts in Nottingham and Mansfield. It was launched in 1975 and was originally called Radio Trent but has since been called 96 Trent FM and now Trent FM. Trent FM is my favourite radio station to listen to. I like the mix between the talking and music. The current presenters are: Emma Caldwell, James Cook, Mark Crossley, Ivan D'Sa, Mark Del, Mark Dennison, Tim Disney, Hannah Patterson, Mark Hitchings, Julian Jones, Steffan La touche, James Lloyd, Andy Twigge, Justin Walker and Jon Wyer. Twiggy and Emma is the breakfast show I listen to the most and they are on air from 6am-10am. This show used to be called Jo and Twiggy but a few months ago Emma replaced Jo. It is always a fun show and they play some great music. Some of their most well known slogans are: Today's best mix, today's best variety, More music, less talk, Playing the best mix of the 80's, 90's and today and Today's best mix. There are lots of opportunities to call in and try and win competitions. The Trent FM Thunder Crew are the radio stations team and they go round lots of different events handing out stickers, sweets, balloons, free tickets etc. They can help out with PA announcements, bring games along and help out at your event.
96.2 or 96.5 FM ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Trent FM is my favourite radio station along with Radio 1. I listen to it every time I am in the car, and have been listening to it for about 4 years now. You can tune into Trent Fm if you ever in Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire area. So here I write about Trent FM and my thoughts. What music does Trent FM play? They play most music rock, pop, dance, chart, oldies. Who are the hosts? ~~~Jo and Twiggy~~~ Jo and Twiggy are for those early morning people, unlike me I dont wake up till noon. But when I do get the chance I do listen to them. From 6am-9am playing todays best mix. With lots of competitions always on the go.

My Verdict Well I think I have covered everyone, well the people I listen to anyway. I love listening to late night love with Graham Torrington and if Im right I think he is on other radio stations as well. Being able to listen to people relationship problems, I often think what you doing girl sort yourself out, can you not see for your own eyes!! Or its oh my god if been in the same situation or I am. Other people phone in and give there own opinions/views as well as Graham, which I find interesting. Another of my favourite I like to listen to the top 40 on a Sunday afternoon from Simon Hirst. I like to know what is in the charts and whats not. It gives me idea of new songs to download. I totally forgot about non stop Ministry of sound on a Saturday which is on from 10pm til 2 in the morning. I think the travel are updates are great aswell as I work about 40mins from home and it gives me a idea for a route for my journeys. Well if you are ever about in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area tune in to Trent Fm 96.2 or 96.5 FM. Thanx for reading my review Hayley
