More Festive Fun!


We have already been there when the Christmas  lights were switched on in Oakham and Stamford and for late night shopping in Uppingham.

Now it’s the turn of Oakham and we will be in town for late night shopping on Monday 8th December.

We’ll have another pop-up radio show thanks to Funky Tents, and you can meet Rob Persani and Stamford the Bear. 


  • Christmas Crackers

    Right up until Christmas Eve you could be winning one of the many great prizes we have in our Christmas Crackers!

    Listen out each weekday morning at 8.40am and Saturday and Sunday at 11.40am, answer one of the questions correctly and see what’s in the cracker

    If the prize is not won, it rolls over until the next day and added to another great prize.

  • Stamford Daniels

    Stamford Daniels kick-off at their new ground, the Zeeco Stadium on Saturday 13th December against Nantwich Town and we will be there with another pop-up radio show.

    Rutland Radio will be providing the music every home game with announcements from Rob Persani.

  • Festive Facts

    Did you know three hundred million crackers are pulled each year in the United Kingdom alone? Also, £1.37 billion was spent on Christmas cards last year and Robins on cards were a joke 150 years ago when postmen wore red tunics and were named after them.

    We will have more Festive Facts right up until to Christmas, just after the news at 8 o’clock every morning on Rutland Radio.

  • Christmas Day

    If you would like to get in touch and say hello to someone on Christmas Day, you can.

    Breakfast Show host Rob Persani will be in the studio from 8am taking your calls, texts, emails and Twitter & Facebook messages.

  • Carol Concert

    This year’s carol concert will be recorded at the Methodist Church in Stamford

    You can hear it on Rutland Radio at 6pm on Christmas Eve and again at midday on Christmas Day.

  • We Have A New Voice

    Darren Lethem will be joining the Rutland Radio team to host Classic Hits, two hours of classic hit songs weekday evenings at 10pm.

    What's the worst thing about Darren?

    He is not the world’s most patient guy. If he booked a holiday for August in January then he would have the itinerary planned out within 24 hours.

    Darren has always liked U2 ever since their early days, and also likes a bit of REM too. Beautiful South, Oasis, Kate Bush, Kasabian and The Beatles all feature on the Lethem iPod.
