We Need Your Help!

We want to attract as many listeners as possible to The Cat during our 28 day broadcast, can you help us get the message across that we are on air. We'd like you to display one of our posters at work, at home, in fact anywhere that it will get noticed (as long as you have permission of course).

If you can help then please email and we'll send you a jpeg file of the poster, simply print off and put it up. Then forward the poster to all your friends, the more people that know about The Cat the better because we are proud of our station and we think we've got some great programmes that the people of Crewe & Nantwich will enjoy, so let them know about it, spread the word, The cat is back!
