The Cat Presenters’ 10th Anniversary

Two presenters at The Cat 107.9FM are celebrating the 10th anniversaries of their radio shows during November 2019.   Peter Shillito and Kev Walker will be celebrating by broadcasting special editions of their shows.

Peter Shillito, who presents Japanese anime music show Neko Desu (Japanese for “The Cat”), will be presenting the anniversary show on 16th November from the show’s usual start time of 9pm right through to 6am in the morning! 

Peter will also be taking part in a yearly charity fundraiser by playing non-stop video games with group of friends for at least 24 hours, with no sleep.  They have previously raised over £2,500 for charities including Special Effect and Cancer Research UK, and this year are supporting the Samaritans. If you wish to help support Peter and the Samaritans please visit http://vscary.co/charity.

Kev Walker, whose anniversary show is the week before, said  “I’ve always thought that the Crewe & Nantwich area was big enough to have its own radio station and I joined The Cat when I heard that it was looking for volunteers. On November 9th, 2009, I presented my first ever show and ten years later I am still here, enjoying every second of it. Over the last decade I have seen the station grow to become a vital part of the community and have had the pleasure of interviewing some incredible people, including artists I was listening to in my youth.”

To mark this achievement, Kev will be presenting two special editions of his Recollections & Revelations show, on 6th and 13th of November at 6pm, to include tunes some listeners may not have heard before, and interview clips from the days before The Cat became an FM station.

Managing Director of The Cat, Chris Cadman, said “These are two very different shows, but equally important to us here at The Cat in bringing a diversity of musical styles and tastes to our listeners.  Both Kev and Peter are volunteers and have been broadcasting their shows for 10 years which shows the passion they have for their music.  We wish them a happy 10th anniversary and hope for many more”
