News update

MIKE “Spando” TYMVIOS and myself will be joining MANIE GROVE at 8pm tonight on Mix93.8fm in celebration of Manie’s first anniversary at the station! Manie has done a fantastic job on his Photographic Show, which he started exactly a year ago today, so much so that he’s given up his male escort and pin-up job!! (Well, he actually had to – he kept on having to pay IN!). The legendary DAVID BLOOD will be in the studio too, so it should be a great evening!! Also, don’t forget that DARREN SCOTT and the BALLZ TEAM (Mon to Friday, 3pm to 6pm) started at the station today, with SASHA MARTINENGO joining from this coming Friday (6.15 to 8pm) as well, not to mention CLINT CUNNINGHAM (of CLINT & CO – Wed midnight to 02am Thursday), now also part of the Rockfest / Mix93.8fm team. Yes, Mix93.8fm has come a long way, thanks to the stirling work of Abi Milosevich, David Watts, Steve Milosevich and all the other staff members. Thanks so much to YOU for sticking with us and for spreading the word!! Oh, and by the way, we do tend to play some pretty decent music now and then!!
