Radio Derby around the Earth!

Listen around the world

So - you've been listening to BBC Radio Derby on the web, eh? Yes? Great! Now we'd like to know where in the world you are!

Technology is a great thing. It's now made BBC Radio Derby accessible to people around the world - any country, any time.

We know that thousands of you listen each and every week to many of the programmes broadcast on the station.

The thing is, although you know where WE are - we don't always know where YOU are!

So, we want you to tell us. You might be in Derby (Australia), Derby (USA) or just good old Derby (UK!) - or perhaps Delhi, Dubai, Delaware or Dartford. Wherever you are, we want to hear from you - and to read your comments about what you listen to.

Use the form below to get in touch!

I go to the BBC Webpage and I listened to BBC Radio Derby. [I have been a visitor to BBC Radio Derby and I still have some souvenirs and the envelope from the year 2000]. My first programme was Shane O Connor at 6:45AM Miami Time. After work, at 6:30PM, I heard Frances Finn [who is one of my favorites]. Best wishes from Miami.

We are thrilled that we are now able via the internet to listen to Radio Derby in the USA. We are in Sanford, North Carolina, about 50 miles south of the capitol of our state, Raleigh. Even after 36 years we suffer severe attacks of home sickness especially at Christmas time, really looking forward to listening to the Carol Service later today as we ready the traditional trifle, mince pies and yes, we have mastered the baking of pork pies, also oatcakes for Christmas day breakfast!Please wish all Symcox and Bettany family tree members friends and past neighbors through out the UK a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thanks Radio Derby for making it possible for us to listen in and keep in touch with Ucheter, Rocester and Ashbourne especially.

Have just discovered you are now online. I have lived in the Detroit area, Michigan, since the mid 60s, but retain my Derbyshire affiliation. I haven't missed a Rams broadcast on the DCFC website in years (Jim Fearn and I did the broadcasts when the Rams were in the US a few years ago). I am still proud of holding both the Derbyshire Junios amd Men's tennis championship at the same time in the 50s. Give my best to Fritchley and Duffield!

The BBC web site is my "home page" and the Derby pages are my first stop. I have been away from Derby, living in Los Angeles, for 23 years and it is nice to get daily updates on the news, weather and the Rams. If I need to hear the Derby "accent" I can always go to the web radio reports. A great site that keeps me closer to "home".
