Changes at Glastonbury Radio

25/05/09

After two gruelling years at the helm of Glastonbury Radio I have decided to step down as MD and let someone else run the station, so we are now seeking a new entrepreneurial MD to take control and to handle the next stage of it's growth.

Whilst many still believe that online radio is still years away from competing with FM, here in Glastonbury it has taken off much quicker than expected, probably because of the festival and the tourism that comes to the town, thus meaning a worldwide interest. In fact, a new GOLD station is to be launched soon called funnily enough, Glastonbury Gold supported by a local brewer who will be launching a brew of the same name!

For me, it's time to look at new ventures and challenges, and although I will be staying with Glastonbury Broadcasting Ltd until something exciting comes up, I will be looking at home and abroad for those new challenges.

I have enjoyed my time here, and the shares will be retained unless we get a fair offer for them, so even whilst I am elsewhere, we will still have an involvement in the business. But that could offer a great opportunity for someone that wants to buy into the business here  /images/smile.png

Thanks to everyone that has supported the station over the two years I have been at the helm, and I wish everyone at Glastonbury Radio great success for the future.

Glastonbury is known the world over as a pilgrimage place and a centre for new and progressive ideas. Loads of interesting people live here, and thousands visit from far and wide seeking a certain special something.

It's home to the famous Glastonbury Tor, Glastonbury Abbey and Chalice Well.

It's rich with history and legend but it's also a place of the future - with a plan to become a 'transitional town'.

Glastonbury is a different and rather lively small town. It has rich traditions, a cosmopolitan community and a taste of tomorrow. It sits on the ancient Isle of Avalon in the Somerset Levels, with a backdrop of soft, green, rolling hills.

It has been a pilgrimage place for thousands of years. In the Middle Ages a great abbey was here - it was England's 'holyest earthe'.

It now hosts the famous Glastonbury Festival, pilgrimages, music, a carnival, several conferences and other events. People visit from the world over, seeking a certain special something....
Overlooking it all is Glastonbury Tor, a fascinating holy hill.

Tradition has it that Jesus visited and Joseph of Arimathaea built a church here, King Arthur and Guinevere were buried here and it was an ancient place of the Goddess. It was home to the medieval saints Patrick, Dunstan, Benedict, David and Bridget.

Today it is a unique, atmospheric town of nearly 10,000 people with a mixture of locals, incomers and spiritual seekers. For a hundred years it has been a mecca for 'cultural creatives' and an interfaith town.

This site tells you all you need to know about Glastonbury - and if it doesn't, it leads you to other Glastonbury sites that will.

Welcome to the Isle of Avalon!

Ross Hemsworth is a business entrepreneur and Managing Director of Glastonbury Radio, but is also a well known paranormal radio and TV presenter, scientific investigator of anomalous phenomena and an intriguing and entertaining speaker at events worldwide. His TV appearances include the hit series Ghost Detectives, the BBC's Ghostwatch Live - Tower of London and ITV's Haunted Halloween Live and of course the Now THAT'S Weird TV series on Saturday nights.

Brian Howes and his defamatory statements

Posted by Ross Hemsworth on November 2, 2009

As many of you will know, Ross Hemsworth and Glastonbury Radio have come under constant attack in recent months by a man called Brian Howes. Our crime was, that we gave him an hour on the radio station as someone who we thought at the time, was facing unfair extradition to the USA.

However, as the audience turned on him after trying to gain their sympathy by telling them of he and his wife’s “suicide pact” which would leave behind five young children, he then started to attack Ross and the radio station with a series of defamatory claims.

It may be prudent at this stage for you all to check Section 58 – paragraph 5 of this document, where the Sheriff in the Scottish Court shows his TRUE colours:-

http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/opinions/doc1.html

Mr Howes appears to be anything BUT innocent, and his ranting s on social networking sites have attempted to cause considerable financial damage to the radio station and to Mr Hemsworth.

http://www.sundaymail.co.uk/news/uk-and-international-news/2009/06/21/drugs-probe-extradition-scot-accused-of-sex-attacks-on-six-year-old-girl-78057-21459748/

If anyone believes any of the rubbish spouted about Mr Hemsworth or Glastonbury Radio, then please e-mail studio@glastonburyradio.net and we will happily reveal the truth to you, as there are always two sides to every story and we believe you should hear both sides before making any judgement.

Ross Hemsworth is a very honest and decent person who has always protected the shareholder’s investments in Glastonbury Radio and has proven to be very reliable and open in his dealings with all concerned.

The management of Glastonbury Radio have now taken legal advice on the matter.

We just felt that you should all know the damage that this evil man has attempted to cause, and since his rantings started various other dubious sources have come out of the closet pretending to back his claims!

Glastonbury Radio is backed by individual investors who have never had anything to do with Mr Howes, yet may suffer from his accusations which are both libelous and defamatory.

Please spread the word to people about Mr Howes’ background, as he has a lot of “followers” on social networking sites who have fallen for his sob-stories and believe him to be innocent.

The Awards Result…..

Posted by Ross Hemsworth on October 16, 2009

As you all know by now, we were finalists last night (Oct 15th) at London’s Novotel in Hammersmith, for “Best Music and Audio Delivery Platform” at the Streaming Media Global Readers Choice Awards.

We didn’t win unfortunately, with the prize being taken by I2i Online (who incidentally were the only one of the three finalists to buy a stand at the event) but just to get to the final three was a major achievement for Glastonbury Radio.

Doug Hill and myself attended the ceremony and were treated to ongoing free drinks and nibbles which was very nice, but made for a sleepy trip home on the train from Paddington!

Well done to I2i Online who took home the award.

Ross Hemsworth
Managing Director

 

 

Tonight – the awards ceremony

Posted by Ross Hemsworth on October 15, 2009

Today I’m in London at the Awards!!

Today may turn out to be my swansong at Glastonbury Radio, as we are finalists in this years Streaming Media Global Readers Choice Awards in London.

The awards are particularly important because they are voted for by web users, and we are one of three finalists for “Music and Audio Delivery Platform” along with Spotify and I2i Online. Only one of the three companies can turn out to be the winner tonight!

The awards are taking place at the Novotel nr Hammersmith and the ceremony starts at around 5.30 p.m. and both myself and major shareholder Doug Hill will be there. Anyone can attend, so if you are in the area, do come along!

Obviously blue-chip company Spotify are the firm favourites to win the award, but just to make it from thousands of companies into that final three is a massive achievement for Glastonbury Radio!

So you may catch a rare glimpse of me wearing a suit if you see me around today lol!

Fingers crossed everyone!

Glastonbury Radio update

Posted by Ross Hemsworth on October 13, 2009

There seems to be a little confusion over the announcement yesterday of Ross Hemsworth quitting as MD of Glastonbury Broadcasting Ltd.

Ross is leaving to study, he plans to sit a law degree course and as such will not have the time to run Glastonbury Radio and has therefore started the process of attempting to find a suitable replacement.

Ross has run Glastonbury Broadcasting Ltd for two and a half years, and has seen the company rise from an idea, to a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week radio station. But now new challenges lay ahead of him.

Applications for the position of MD should be sent to studio@glastonburyradio.net and will be forwarded to the shareholders for their consideration, although the new MD will be expected to buy at least one share in the business as a show of commitment.

To avoid confusion, Glastonbury Radio will continue to broadcast and grow and hopefully with new energy on board, will flourish.

Glastonbury Radio seeks new MD

Posted by Ross Hemsworth on October 12, 2009

After two and a half years at the helm, our current Managing Director is leaving in January to start a six year law degree course, and this means Glastonbury Broadcasting Ltd is seeking a new Managing Director.

Initially it’s a voluntary position, but as the company grows, a salary should be payable. We do however, expect the new MD to purchase a number of shares in the business to show his/her commitment to the company.

If you think you could take Glastonbury Radio to its next level then drop a CV and covering letter to studio@glastonburyradio.net explaining why you think you have what it takes.
