The MKFM column, by Darren Dorrington.
If you’ve followed the progress of MKFM, you will know that we first presented the Mid Morning Show on MKFM back in 2014 and after a year of presenting other shows we’re back where we belong.
Our show is all about making the work-day go faster with loads of great music, lively conversation, but above all doing what we can to assist people in Milton Keynes.
Since we started our show, we’ve grilled local MPs and other politicians about the issues that people are talking about.
We’ve tackled topics such as zero hours contracts, rough sleepers, the safety of the Redways and infrastructure in MK.
One of our highlights was riding around Beanhill estate on a mobility scooter after being contacted by the residents’ association.
This was to illustrate to Milton Keynes Council that the lack of landscaping was resulting in the residents on the estate not being able to get around.
The video was sent to the leader of the council and the issue was resolved within a few days.
You have to live here to fully understand the area. With most of our team living in Milton Keynes, we have a good understanding of what the main issues are and how to resolve them.
Already booked in for an interview on our new show are local MPs Iain Stewart and Mark Lancaster, plus Peter Marland the leader of Milton Keynes and our Mayor.
Pete Winkelman is a regular guest along with the many local charities that we support.
So get us on at the office, at home and in the car for loads of great music and conversation.
If you have an issue you would like us to highlight, you can email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01908 230149.
Listen to the Mid Morning Show with Darren and Lia weekdays from 10am to 1pm. MKFM is on 106.3FM, DAB Digital Radio and online at http://www.mkfm.com
