Community radio

In2 Radio - Derby's community radio station is delighted to have the Siddiqui family, famous for their TV appearances from their Derby sofa on Gogglebox, on their airwaves on a new Saturday morning radio show.

Popular regulars on Channel 4's TV programme Gogglebox, the family are well-known for their lovely father-son relationship, dry humour and good-natured brotherly banter.

The idea of a radio show grew from their successful Siddiqui Ramblings podcast which has a good following and made the iTunes comedy chart in 2017. Discussing everything from fashion faux pas to fidget spinners, from food experimentation to the trials and tribulations of family life, their Saturday brunchtime radio show from 10am will mix musings on modern life with music and local what's on bulletins.

The Siddiquis join a growing team of presenters on In2, which is run entirely by dedicated volunteers, passionate about truly local radio for Derby. Listeners can catch Stephan Cole, a familiar voice from Touch FM, on breakfast weekdays from 7am followed by Elevenses with TC, and Darren Rogers brings the laughs and brainteasers on drive time. There is a different specialist show on each weeknight. Vanessa Boon presents The V Show with pop and rock music, community news, reasons to Love Where You Live and 'Derby Amplified' showcasing local artists and unsigned bands on Monday nights from 7pm. Soul and Motown shows feature on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and Becs takes the airwaves with The Vibe for pop culture and news of the week Thursday evenings. Ian James brings Weekend Anthems on Friday nights followed by a variety of weekend shows including a nostalgic 80s Mix Tape from Dean Ormond on Saturday afternoons and Music from the Movies with Mike Rhodes. The chilled out Sunday soundtrack includes The Sunday Sofa Session with Dean Ormond, Mark Dodson's Go Retro - Music from the 80's & 90's and Country In My Veins with Ali Donowho.

Listeners can access the station which broadcasts 24/7 over the internet on desktop, mobile and tablet devices via the In2 website, on their facebook page Player Radio or the tunein app.
