Radio Zetland
Tune in to Radio Zetland in the coming weeks, and be ready to bowled over by the dulcet tones of our very own Mike Anderson. Mike – and Glen the radio man- put together a really impressive thirty to forty second recording to help advertise our joint concert with Paul Wheater on July 22nd at Guisborough Methodist Church. This little `jingle` will be played two or three times a day, both on action line and on advertising programmes and will be accompanied by music taken from the Dalesmen tape, `Take me Home,` and from Paul himself.

A Coop representative recently visited us during a Tuesday practice tea break to explain how we can raise funds for the Dalesmen Singers by purchasing Coop branded products.
If you want to help raise money for the Choir in this way and are not already a Coop member, just go to your local Coop and ask to speak to someone who can sign you up.
Once you are a member you need to register your card so that 1% of the value your purchases can then go to Dalesmen Singers (and a further 5% is put into your Coop membership account for you to spend next time). You can register either by phoning 0800 023 4708, or going online to
I have just done this and can see that at present £145.10 has been raised for the Dalesmen.
We shall be beneficiaries for the next six months so let’s see if we can raise a substantial amount.
P.S. If you buy a 5p bag when shopping, the 5p goes to the Dalesmen!
If you have any questions, ask me on a Tuesday night

Choir members please note: This is an easy way to raise money for the choir - perhaps friends and neighbours can be persuaded to help in this way too? (ed)

John Watson writes:

The Dalesmen Singers Male Voice Choir from Danby will don their Stetsons and go `Country` for one night only on Saturday, July 22nd when guest starring alongside the legendary Country and Western singing star, Paul Wheater.
Paul shot to fame when taking the London Palladium by storm and is known world wide for his stunning, honey rich voice, so much likened to the late, great Jim Reeves, but his delivery is very much all his own, a particularly relaxed style which always communicates so well with his audience.
Make a note in your diary now for Saturday, 7 30 pm, July 22nd at the Methodist Church, Guisborough, for a superb night of entertainment, music and song from one of the most gifted artists this area has ever produced. Do not miss this one.
Tickets  are £8 and available from Guisborough Book Shop and also from Peter Etwell on 01287 632852, or any choir member. For more information on this concert, or on forthcoming events please click on website or
