Making the (Surrey) hills alive with the sound of music

Having already been the main presenter of Brookland's Future Starz on Brooklands Radio, Amanda Neale was really excited about the chance to bring Junior Star Singer onto another Surrey based radio station.  She was joined by Rachael Summers again as her co-host and with special guest Georgia Lois who sang her wonderful track 'Choose' at the end of the show.  


Amanda, Rachael and Georgia made their way to Leatherhead again with a good cup of coffee for the early morning breakfast show.  



These early starts are proving to be a bit hard on the presenters but they love the buzz of the show anyway and are full steam ahead ready to greet contestants!!

Surrey Hills Radio station is based in Leatherhead Town Centre amongst a lovely array of swanky coffee shops and high street stores. Leatherhead is not a large town but quite a small, warm welcoming  one with a selection of shops, activities, and events that draw people from nearby towns and villages.  The town has some stunning countryside that surrounds the whole of leatherhead with well-marked paths and guided walking routes.  Surrey Hills Radio is a fun, exciting radio station that goes out onto the internet.   It is well known for receiving songs from unsigned artists who want to have their songs played on air and also supporting local musicians and vocalists.  The presenter Dan Joyce really welcomed Junior Star Singer as a national competition after interviewing Amanda on his live breakfast show.  Check out the interview here:

Contestants for JSS came from the Surrey Area to greet presenters at Surrey Hills Radio before 9am so well done folks!!!! 

We listened to entries from Helen Houlahan, performing 'Wings' by Birdy and T-J , performing 'Set fire to the rain' by Adele. Check out their performances here:







The Surrey Hills Radio show is the latest in our tour which is also helping to raise awareness of the Youth Music charity, which helps disadvantaged youngesters in the UK to realise their potential through music. If you'd like to donate to the charity, please text “TOUR11 £5” to 70070.

We are nearly close to finishing now for the Junior Star Singer Songwriter Radio Tour 2016 so keep a look out on all the blogs for further information on who will get selected for the final.  Contestants will be invited to come down to a recording studio and sing to compete in the final.  They will have to sing a verse and chorus of a track written by the main presenter Amanda Neale.  Out of these finalists, one winner will be chosen and their track will be played across all 20 radio stations next year for the Junior Star Singer Songwriter Radio Tour in 2017.  Rachael Summers will also be performing at the final.  Look out for the next show at West Side Radio in November and any further updates on our Junior Star Singer website.

Thanks to Dan Joyce and all the team for a very fun wacky show.  See you next time.

Good Luck contestants!!!!!!!!!!
