Today our Team Leader Garry Rhodes MBE was invited to be a guest on the BBC Radio Manchester morning show presented by Heather Stott.
Turning up at the New Broadcasting House home of BBC Radio Manchester within the BBC complex on Oxford Road, Manchester, Garry was welcomed into the radio studio for the live interview. (No um’s and err’s was the golden message from his ever ready to give advice team colleagues!)
Garry was expecting perhaps a pre run through of typical questions, as usually happens when he gives interviews to radio and TV on operational incidents, but instead it was straight into the guest chair, a quick hello from presenter Heather Stott, and right into the live interview, concentrating on Garry’s recently awarded certificate marking thirty years service in mountain rescue, his MBE presented in 2008, and the work and role of the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team.
Garry commented afterwards that; “BBC Radio Manchester presenter Heather Stott was very welcoming and put me at ease straight away, as I had never been in a live radio studio before.”
Garry would like to thank BBC Radio Manchester for this opportunity to profile to its wide listening audience, a little taste of what the Bolton Mountain Rescue Team actually gets up to.
