Cameron, 8, presents Drystone Radio show
8:00am Sunday 10th March 2013 in News
Eight-year-old Cameron Boyes is the latest youngster to take to the airwaves on Cowling-based Drystone Radio.
He has been given his own regular slot, at 4pm on Tuesdays, at the community radio station. Previously he had a five-minute spot on another presenter’s show.
Presenter Mick Peacock said: “Cameron has a natural enthusiasm and desire which comes across on the radio. He clearly enjoys presenting, has a good knowledge of music and most importantly is very confident.”
Cameron, who also plays guitar and sings, said: “I love being on the radio, it’s really good fun and I would like to do this as a job when I grow up.”
He hopes to develop his hour-long show around schools, involving them in selecting music.
Nurturing young talent is a trademark of the station – in 2010 ‘Crazy Daisy’ Watkiss made national headlines when she presented a weekly Saturday show aged just nine.
