Sounds from the Sunnyside - Last updated 23rd February 2024

                                                                   The Rocking Rev

                                                                            The Rocking Rev many, many moons ago BC

Coming from a rock and pop background before becoming an Anglican priest, Rev Chris has been DJ'ing a music show on Heckington Living Community Radio each week called 'Sounds from the Sunnyside', which is broadcast straight after the weekly worship service recorded at the Rectory. The worship service is broadcast at around 11am every Sunday morning and 'Sounds from the Sunnyside' follows at around 11.50am/12noon depending on the length of the service.

'Sounds from the Sunnyside' is repeated on Tuesdays at 9am and 8pm and on Thursdays at 2pm. Each show lasts about 2 hours and features rock,  pop, blues, prog, country selections from the 1950's onwards. Sometimes there is a specific theme, sometimes not. The playlist is now being posted here on this page each week so you can plan to log onto Heckington Living Community Radio to hear the records whilst preparing your Sunday Lunch. If you miss on Sunday there is always Tuesdays or Thursdays. There might also be a record you heard and liked but didn't know who it was, if so hopefully the playlist may help you to remember who it was and so you can look for it on the internet. As music is one of the great pleasures in life for those of us fortunate enough to be able to hear, 'Sounds of the Sunnyside' is helping to spread a little bit of that joy. To listen just Google 'Heckington Living Community Radio'.
