With the environment becoming the world’s No. 1 concern, it is time for Southampton to have an opportunity to voice its thoughts all green matters.
Every Thursday, as part of S.O Talk, Xan Phillips will present 'Your Green Voice' from 2 pm to 4 pm.
“Being ‘Green’ is a passion of mine. Everywhere I have worked, I’ve tried to encourage as many colleagues as possible to think about our impact on the planet and, if possible, begin by recycling.”
“During my last show on Voice FM we had a monthly green feature with Ryan Carter. He was a young and dynamic environmentalist and when he suddenly passed away it seemed even more urgent that we carried on his flame.”
“To be able to host an environment show on the radio is exciting. There aren’t many shows like this in the UK, so we hope we’re breaking new ground and allowing the people of Southampton to speak out.”
And there’s a great opportunity for you to get your thoughts across Southampton...
Opportunities To Be Heard For You, Businesses and Community Groups.
You can get your voice directly on air. If you have something to say about any green issue, whether it is positive or grates, then leave a voice mail on 023 818 00 22 1 and you could feature on the show.
For green businesses, this is a great opportunity to let Southampton know if you have a green product, your business is making less of an impact on the environment, or you have implemented better processes at your premises.
Business can also call Your Green Voice on 023 818 00 22 1 and Xan will be in contact with you to arrange an interview.
The same applies to community groups around that city that are doing great work behind the scenes. It might be difficult, in the current situation to meet and do good, but now is the time to inform people of what you are doing and how like-minded people can join in.
Some Background On Xan Phillips
A volunteer at the station from 2013, Xan has hosted a local music show, and for the past five years, The Business, a local business show, and is now hosting a show that has very close ties to his outlooks.
After a career in TV he became involved in radio around 2000 through hospital and university stations and since then has thoroughly enjoyed his time on air, progressing to national DAB with Amazing Radio. He has met a wide variety of interesting people, given some artists their first radio play, and is always looking for new stories and music to entertain the listener.
He thoroughly recommends getting involved in a radio station and, if you are looking to scratch that media itch, then Southampton’s Voice FM is the perfect place to do it.
