Barringtons take to the airwaves in new business programme


Barringtons Chartered Accountants and The Cat FM, based at South Cheshire College in Crewe, have teamed up to launch a new business show.

The programme is hosted by our Business Development Manager Des Machin whose guests include high-profile people in the local business community.

He said: “The aim is to meet local business owners and find out more about the people behind the brand.

“We hear about what makes them a success in business, what drives them and how they handle any pressures in their industry.

“The station is a true asset to South Cheshire, with over 10,000 weekly listeners, so this will be a great way to spread the word about entrepreneurial talent in the area.”

The show, sponsored by Barringtons, includes light-hearted banter, music and a look at topical business stories.

First guest was Barringtons managing director Phil Wood who spoke about changes in the accountancy industry over the past 40 years and HMRC’s plans to introduce a digital system for keeping tax records.

The Cat director Chris Cadman thanked Barringtons for coming on-board. He said: “We are really excited to be bringing a new business focused show to our line-up thanks to this generous sponsorship and support.

“This is a really important step forward for The Cat in our efforts to get closer to the people and the businesses in the Crewe and Nantwich area."

In 2014 The Cat won a community radio licence from Ofcom to broadcast on FM. Listeners can tune in on 107.9 FM or online.
