Donate to Vixen 101

Vixen 101  is a self funded community radio station that is entirely run by volunteers. It costs thousands of pounds each year to maintain the service, of which some income is sourced by us selling advertising and sponsorship airtime to businesses in and around our broadcasts area. We also sometimes receive donations from various groups and organisations to which we are extremely grateful.  However we sometimes receive smaller donations from listeners and supporters by the use of the donate button which is on our homepage,  so if you feel that you would like to personally make a donation to help maintain the service we provide, then you are welcome to use the “Donate” button at any time. We are most grateful for any donation, no matter the amount.  Thankyou.

***  UPDATE   2nd Feb  ***  We are pleased to advise that the issue with the Paypal system has now been resolved and as such you should now be able to also make donations directly with your Paypal account.  If you still do have any problems, please contact us at ***.

Gary Newbould Tribute Show

Former Vixen 87/101 presenter Gary Newbould sadly passed away suddenly last week, aged 47. Gary presented the sports programmes, as well as the Sunday Lunch show, co-hosted with Bill Horncastle. When Gary left the area, Bill continued to present the Sunday Lunch show fortnightly, which he still continues to do.

So, in memory of Gary, Bill will be hosting a tribute show for him today from Noon – 2pm, and is looking for song requests loosely based on a sporting theme. If you would like to request a song for Gary, please email

As well as sporting songs, Bill will be digging out a couple of old features he and Gary did on the Sunday shows and playing some of his favourite cheesy songs, too.
