WIN a great Prize!

Click to hear the promotion >>>>  

We've teamed up with those great guys at Group Hug and The Wensleydale Brewery to send a hug, a smile and some love to a person you care about over the airwaves on Dales Radio.  Plus the chance to win a case of beer from Wensleydale Brewery for one lucky entrant.

There's loads of reasons why you might want to have a special song played on Dales Radio...Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, or just to say hello to an old friend. 

There might also be a very important reason for sending a hug.  Many people in The Dales have been affected by the recent pandemic.  Whether this has lead to loss, loneliness or isolation, a mention on the radio will be a welcomed boost, not least to know someone is thinking about them.   

However you want to reach out, do it through Dales Radio!

You can choose a song and a dedication on the Sunday Takeover between noon and 2pm every Sunday afternoon, where we'll do our best to play the song you want to hear.  If you'd like a special mention on a particular day - maybe its someone's birthday or anniversary?  We can do it between 6am and 10pm any day - you choose the time and we'll do the rest!

Fill out the form below to submit a request for your family, friends, work colleagues... in fact anyone!

Don't forget to add in the SECRET PASSWORD on the poster and the name of the PUB you saw it, for your chance to win a case of Ale!

Let them know and listen out for your song!
