WELCOME PAUL FARRAR

New to Thursday evenings at 21:00 
The Paul Farrar Comedy Show is a unique comedy, guest and music radio show where guests are interrupted while talking by the host’s comic creations entering the studio and causing chaos. Exploding studio equipment, hundreds of noisy cats and dogs entering the studio while a guest is being interviewed, inept builders undertaking extension work in the studio and totally destroying it in the process, Batman trying to help out but making things considerably worse, and being transported to various locations across the world that are fraught with danger are some of the disasterous situations facing guests on this show. Let the mayhem commence...

FAREWELL LENA AND SHANNON

All the best ladies and good luck for the future from all of us at En5 Radio.

Geoff Dorsett is coming to EN5 Radio weekdays from 2pm. Geoff started his career at the age of 13 and within five years was one of the Mecca Group's top DJs, being used as their opening act for their new venue's nationwide. During the '60s when package tours were at the height of their popularity, Geoff could be found compering shows with Animals, Kinks, Spencer Davis, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and MC'd for the second-ever Led Zeppelin show.


Come the late '60s, Geoff was on the radio with the BBC Radio and in 1974 became one of Radio Hallam's first voices when the station launched, being the new commercial station for Sheffield. In the '70s, Geoff also worked on Q102 in Florida, USA and KZUN in Dallas. In the '80s, you'd have heard him on the legendary pirate radio station, Sunshine Radio.

Geoff is now working on a number of specialist radio shows and can currently be heard on a number of stations in the UK, with special mention of his work with Express FM who carry the twice-award-winning Soft Rock Show. This live show has reached a cult status and Geoff has interviewed over nine hundred artists over the last five years, including Sir Cliff Richard, Genesis, Status Quo, Blondie, The Searchers, Slade, Toto, Rick Astley, Foreigner and Jethro Tull... and that's just the start of the list! The show has carried a unique live link with Mix 94.1 in Las Vegas in the past, and now each month features a live link to Te Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas for all the hottest entertainment news from Sin City! The show continues to draw huge names to be interviewed both live on the telephone and in the studio.

Geoff also works for Forest FM, presenting a Soul and R&B show on Saturday in addition to All Our Yesterplays each weekday morning. He has also completed the Route to Radio broadcasting course, with credits.

Summer Soulstice 10


En5 Radio were very honoured once again to bring you all the action from the amazing Summer Soulstice 10 festival held right here in Barnet.

Some top acts performed this year including Natasha Watts, Omar, Vivienne McKone, Kenny Thomas, Beggar and Co all backed by the fantastic Ernie McKone Band and then of course the headliners Incognito.

The rain did not stop the revellers from enjoying the event and all through the day all that could be seen were smiling faces and the atmosphere was fantastic.

Here are just a small selection of pictures from the day.


COMING TO EN5 RADIO

Wednesday Nights from 8pm are about change with the arrival of Simon Lipson.

Simon says :

"I've had a lot of radio experience as a comedian, impressionist and writer and have also co-presented an internet based breakfast show for an ex-pat station in Spain."


Simon will be bringing you a show based around "classic funk (dare I say disco?)" from the 70s to the present day. "I  hope to add some humour and sports chat."

Simon Lipson came into comedy in 1994 and reached the final of the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year competition that same year. Since then he has clocked up an impressive array of TV, radio, theatre and comedy club credits as a comedian, impressionist, actor, writer and voiceover artist.


Welcome to En5 Simon



LETS TEE OFF

It is always a huge honour to be asked to assist in a local event and on a sunny but windy Friday 13th May 2016 Johno took part in a charity Golf Day at the Shire in Barnet, held by our friends at Oliver and Akers

Golfers were perfectly safe from Johno's poor swing as he did not take part in playing but rather was asked to witness if any of the golfers managed to hit a hole in one on the 12th Hole, had they of done so they would have won a £20,000 car. Sadly due to windy conditions the car remained safe, however the event was a huge success and over £4000 raised for the respective charities. Congratulations to everyone involved.

During the day Johno managed to say hi to former Barnet FC players and managers Gary Phillips and Giuliano Grazioli and former Arsenal and England number one David Seaman.



En5 Radio would like to say a massive well done to our friends from the Summer Soulstice, who on Saturday 30th August 2015 handed over a huge cheque for £40,000 to Cherry Lodge. This was raised at the annual Summer Soulstice event held in June 2015.

Well done to all involved.
