Q & A Interview with Susan Vickers for Best of Wolverhampton    1. Please tell us about the ASAN Christmas Fayre on 11th December in Wolverhampton 
After the wonderful success of the ASAN (All Saints Action Network) We have all come together again to help spread a little Christmas spirit within the community with a fabulous Christmas Fayre ... It has something for everyone magic shows, Christmas stalls, food courts, animals and live music plus there will be a visit from the 'Big man' too. 
  2. It’s free entrance and free parking - what’s the lineup?  
Yes its free,  We will have local singer songwriters on the WCRFM stage, including Abigail Stanton and Bethanny Anniemae who will be singing classic Christmas songs and a wonderful poetry recital by a certain local legend Ian Henery, Plus children can bring their Christmas wish lists to Father Christmas himself, And we have an incredible magic show from Razzamatazz and much more. 
  3. WCR FM are supporting the event - how important is community involvement to the radio station?
As Wolverhampton's only community station WCRFM try to engage in as many community initiatives, business and events as we can, as Wolverhampton has such a huge heart within the various communities in and around the city so WCRFM are proud to shout about and support as many we can. 
  4. Please can you tell us about WCR FM?  How many people do you broadcast to and tell us about your Spotify and Listen Again services?
WCRFM have been broadcasting for over 30 years on FM to people right across the region and beyond, with the addition of digital services like Spotify , Tunein , smart speakers and our listen again feature on our website people are tuning in and listening right across the world, we have regular listeners in USA, Canada and beyond... Just ask your smart speaker 'play WCRFM'
  5. You do a lot for the community yourself as an individual and 2021 has seen you doing - amongst others - Judgestock & Lock Stock.  Please can you tell us about your year as a community entrepreneur?
Well the past few years have been challenging for so many people but as a Public Service WCRFM prided ourselves on working with many officials Wolverhampton councils and advisers etc to keep everyone updated with the latest announcements and advice from public health during covid etc so that aside so many events were postponed or cancelled , luckily the past 6 months we saw events re-emerging so especially the last few months have been manic but so rewarding to see people coming back together and actually having contact with live music etc again, Judgestock and Lockstock festivals were particular emotional  as at the end of the evening the whole crowd came together with a singalong to remember the people we all lost during the pandemic , there was hugging , tears and just an unforgettable energy of community and joy.
   6. What does 2022 hold for you?  What are your plans?
Hopefully 2022 with bring some kind of what we remember as normality with all the usual events throughout the city back to the forefront, plus there are so many new plans in place for new events and wonderful projects for both WCRFM with new shows etc and myself personally with  so many new and existing events lined up and a huge huge personal project in the making ....2022 will certainly be an eye opener , exciting and surprising year.
