Some Good News

To the fans, players, and staff of Yeovil Town Football Club, and to the wider Yeovil community:

Rejoice. The long winter of discord is over.

It is my greatest honour to announce that Hellier Group have secured the majority shareholding of Yeovil Town Football Club, Yeovil Town Holdings, and the buy-back rights to the stadium and surrounding land, which we intend to reunite with the trading business in the months to come.

As local owners, our hearts are rooted in the wellbeing and progression of our community, and we pledge to every fan, our intentions to form one entity, one club, one community, and to finally, ‘Achieve by Unity’.

This has been a long and stressful process, I have been passionate about my beliefs and feelings because I deeply care about this club. This has not been a transaction for financial gain, it has involved a vast amount of time and effort to arrange, it is because I have the very best interests of this football club at heart.

I would like to thank the endless patience of the fans, players and the loving support of my family, as well as the tireless efforts of professionals around me, that have dedicated their time and efforts to securing what has been an exhausting process, the outcome of which is immeasurable in terms of unifying the hearts and minds of all that love this club.

Please allow us to catch our breath, steady the ship, and bring stability, we have a very arduous task ahead of us, but one which we whole-heartedly embrace. I look forward to working closely with Mark Cooper and Josh Staunton who I know share my belief that Yeovil Town can return to brighter times.

We ask that you invest your hearts and minds in supporting what is now our truly locally-owned, community asset, and lets collectively focus our ambitions in the progression of Yeovil Town Football Club.

For too long, our fan-base has been divided, I would ask that this comes to an end.

Following this week's Glovers’ Trust Meeting, I look forward to working closely with the trust(s) / the newly formed ‘Save Our Club’ group and show that the club has, as of today, been saved.

I look forward to a bright and successful future for the club. I am very excited for us all to take this journey together.

We’ve gone Poddy!!!

Starting in May Three Valleys will be making some radical changes to its operation.

We are going to switch all our Sports Zone and selected  non-music shows programs to podcasts format, with the exception of our regular LIVE football commentaries of Yeovil Town Football Club which will continue as normal.

Podcasts are becoming more and more popular, allowing listeners access to their chosen program at a time that suits them.

We believe this decision will give listeners the opportunity to join the ever increasing band of Three Valleys Radio Podcast followers.

In the two years, since we started using Podcasts for selected programs we have had over 33,140 downloads which we feel rightly proud of.

With a wider choice of programs becoming available in the coming months we feel sure that switching to Podcast will be more than justified.

Three Valleys Radio will continue its usual Music Zone Programs as normal, bringing you its usual varied mix of Retro, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, Country & Western, Motown and current day favourites.

Motown Extravaganza

Over 64 years ago Berry Gordy decided to start his own Music Publishing and Record company. It was to be called Tamla Motown and went on to produce countless soul and R & B hit records propelling their artists to become major International Super Stars.

Amongst those stars were Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, The Temptations, Little Steve Wonder, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, David Ruffin, The Contours, The Miracles, The Marvelettes, Mary Wells, The Supremes and the list goes on and on.

Well ever since I heard my first Tamla Motown track I have adored it and continue to play it to this day and, following two documentaries on TV over the Christmas period, the whole Motown scene has been re-awoken in me so I have decided to introduce some purely Motown shows to Three Valleys Radio.

There is a weekly 2 hour show featuring the music of Motown, and not only all the obvious hit tracks, but some of the early Motown tracks.


When Pirates Ruled The Airwaves

Three Valleys Radio are delighted to announce that we have acquired the rights to broadcast hundred’s of hours of recordings from the 60’s 70’s and 80’s of the offshore radio stations that were positioned off the Essex coast during that era.


Among the stations we shall be covering are Radio Caroline (North & South), Radio London Big L, Radio North Sea international, Swinging Radio England, Radio 355, Britain Radio, Tower Radio, Radio Atlanta, Laser 558 and Radio City all featuring many well known D.J’s including Kenny Everett, Tony Blackburn, DLT, Robbie Dale, Johnnie Walker, Tom Edwards, Tommy Vance, Roger Day, Dave Cash, Emperor Rosko and many more.

We hope during the series to be able to speak with some of the D.J’s mentioned above and feature as much background news and history as we can gather.

This really does give you the opportunity to go back 50-60 years and hear what the radio revolution really sounded like.

“When Pirates Ruled The Air Waves” will be broadcast on Three Valleys Radio on Wednesdays at (3.00pm) and the programme will be repeated at 15.00 (3.00pm) on Sundays also at 3.00pm.
Reminisce the actual start of the Radio Revolution of the 1960’s with these unique recordings.
