The CVS show

Playing a magical and mind-expanding mêlée of global sounds.

Playing a magical and mind-expanding mêlée of global sounds.

Show name: DRIVE Live and CVS show.

Presenters names: John Stammers

Show time and day:
The CVS Show is on every Thursday  from 2pm to 4pm.

What type of music can we expect to hear on the show?
CVS Show: Tracks from festival favourites and the more twisted end of the glam-folk scene seem to be popular with CVS staff, who choose their own tracks for the show.

Why do you like this music?
We’re thirsty for the global beat.

What is the format of your show?
Various bods from the CVS and other community organisations come along and talk about their work and how listeners can get involved with making Exeter a happier place. It’s all good.

Why should we listen to your show?
Find out how to help or be helped by getting involved with volunteering and community activities – support, training, volunteering and generally being excellent to each other.

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?

We dance, often. And laugh. And panic a little bit.

What has been your best on air moment?
Feedback from listeners while doing the show is always the best bit.

What has been your worst/ most embarrassing on air moment?
We seem to have a gift for innuendo…we slip a few in now and again unintentionally.

Who is your favourite artist?
Impossible to say, and probably impossible to pronounce.

What is your all time favourite album?

Again impossible to say, and probably impossible to pronounce.
