Dave Henderson

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that former Vixen 101 presenter Dave Henderson (AKA Catweasel) passed away on Friday, 9th December.

Dave became involved with Vixen 101 in 2010, when he called by one Friday night to drop off a CD to be played on The Fox’s Den Show. As the co-presenter’s post had just become available, Bill asked Dave what he was doing on Friday nights, and for the next three years Dave was an integral part of the team. What Dave didn’t know about the local music scene he more than made up with his continued enthusiasm for the music played on the show, looking after the guest musicians and also attending various gigs and open mic nights that Bill dragged him along to.

In 2011, Bill and Dave, after enjoying a glass of lemonade or two at a local hostelry, decided that if Radio 1’s Chris Moyles and “Comedy” Dave Witty could achieve the Guinness World Record team radio broadcast, then they could match this, and go one better and beat it by an hour, and so, the next day Bill set the wheels in motion and at 10am on Friday 27th May 2011 they embarked on their own marathon broadcast. They matched the record at 2pm on Sunday 29th May, and stopped their broadcast at 3pm, having achieved their aim. Unfortunately, the record was beaten a few weeks later by a station in Doncaster.

In 2012, a 2nd attempt at the record was planned, with Dave once again taking part, this time accompanying Sunday Soul Show’s Paul Atkinson. This time they aimed to achieve 101 hours. Bill took a back seat, but provided assistance where needed as well as taking over presenting duties during Dave and Paul’s rest breaks. After 55 hours, they had to abandon their attempt due to both contracting a sickness bug during the broadcast – having beaten Bill & Dave’s attempt by 2 hours.

On Sunday 11th December, Bill decided to turn over his Sunday Lunch Themed Show into a tribute show to Dave and made an announcement of his intention on Facebook. Lots of friends, family and musicians posted their condolences as well as made some very good musical suggestions, and Bill picked a couple of tracks out, too. The show was uploaded to The Fox’s Den’s podcast page and can be heard by clicking HERE.

R.I.P., Dave, from all at Vixen 101.

Lloyd Jackson’s coast to coast charity bike ride

Market Weighton teenager Lloyd Jackson appeared on Vixen 101’s Thursday night weekend sports preview show recently to tell the story of his coast to coast charity bike, from Blackpool to Bridlington and finishing in Market Weighton, to raise money for Breast Cancer UK and Dementia UK.

By 3rd November 2016 he had raised £1,500 in sponsorship.
