Further income is donated via the annual Hospital Broadcast Collection , again under the Supporters' Association auspices. Must mention , since you highlighted other groups , that our Former Players Association donated £50 in February this year to this cause. Perhaps I am missing something and the Media team are entirely unconnected to the Hospital Broadcast even though Mark Griffiths is central to both? Perhaps you could explain?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your message. The hospital radio service is a WSA led service and not ran by the Media Team (or the club). Mark is involved linking the WSA and the club to provide that service. Essentially although our commentary is used and we helped by conducting the bucket collection that paid in excess of the amount required for the telephone bill, it's not one of our functions.

The Former Players Association did offer to make a donation to the media team and we must follow this up - at the time the offer was made we didn't know how to process it as the offer was made to write a cheque in our names which we didn't feel was appropriate. However the club can now process and hold money on the media team's behalf.

Thanks Carl , I think I understand. The Media team and the Hospital Broadcast are unconnected with the former's commentaries being online and via Calon FM. Which begs the question of what the Hospital Broadcast's purpose is and why Carroll Clark and his committee are still paying in excess of £2k per annum?

The purpose of the IDSN line the WSA have is to connect the stadium to the hospital radio studio. Once that connection is established we transmitted Wrexham PlayerHD (online feed) to the hospital.

It's existence and how it's paid for is the WSA's responsibility. As mentioned we help them with their bucket collection and all of the media team members get involved with that to show our support.

We are still looking at different solutions of how this will work as we switch over to Calon as the technical set-up will be completely different. If the solution we want to go with works out after testing, it will benefit both the hospital broadcast and the WSA enormously.

Personally, I believe the concept of providing commentary to the hospital is fantastic and has a rich history. Mark is very passionate about supporting it and I hope it continues for many years to come.

Thank you again.I'll pass on details of our discussion to Carroll. I know he has tried , on several occasions , to arrange a meeting with Mark.

Mark met with the WSA committee (including Carrol) two weeks ago to discuss the hospital broadcast.

There are unique circumstances in play at the moment as we are switching from PlayerHD, so Mark wasn't able to answer some of their questions without my input.

Hopefully in the next month or so during the testing period with Calon, I'll be able to give Mark and the WSA concise answers rather than speculating on how the two broadcasts will coincide and what will be required to do so.

The hospital radio service has been going out from the Racecourse since 1957 - during that time it's survived more hurdles than the club changing it's digital partners.

Thank you for that information.I wasn't aware that Carroll had managed to arrange a meeting with Mark. I trust that further discussions will help resolve outstanding issues and that the Association will receive full recognition and credit for its contribution.

Thanks, Carl. I'm glad you've replied. I have asked a few questions or made comments on the Media Team's social media accounts, but I find that Red Passion generally works better for longer discussions. I think it would be very helpful for you to have a presence on RP going forward, even if you keep your existing platforms as your main way of keeping in touch.

As long as you're aware of the problem, I'm confident it will be sorted.

I'm not sure how others feel, but I'd be happy to continue to give what I was paying to Wrexham Player to the Media Team. As an exile, I can't get to many games, and therefore don't spend anywhere near as much as season ticket holders and other regulars. The Media Team deserve to have a little bit of what I save towards their equipment and expenses. I hope you'd be pleasantly surprised by a response to a donate button. (Although I do think most people would prefer to make small monthly amounts, rather than a larger one-off payment.)

Thanks again!

Hi Dave, No problem. It's the WSA's service, that's made quite clear I think. There is a full page on the club website all about it, it's clearly marked as so during the bucket collections and on air. Carroll hasn't mentioned any issues to us about not getting recognition.

Thank you. We'll certainly explore a donate button function as it's a very good idea.

Hopefully you'll enjoy the commentary on Calon FM next season. We are essentially going head-to-head with the other free-to-air commentaries, so we are working hard on ensuring we have a format that our listeners (Wrexham fans) will enjoy.

Default Re: Next season's commentary and highlights

A fantastic discussion here, thanks to all of you.

Praise is clearly due to Carl and Mark at the Media Team and Carl's posts have my eyes a bit to what goes on therein!

My question for Carl - the DSA donated a set of Audio Descriptive Commentary equipment to the club at the end of 2016. We've undertaken to assemble a group of volunteers and have them professionally trained and managed by a leading ADC provider (at the DSA's expense).
In order to do this we need to know firstly if the club has an FM license, if not we will fund one. We then need to get the system tested - which would be a job for the 2 Phils, Bennett & Salmon I guess.
Ideally we'd like this service underway as soon as possible.
How can you help us with this, if at all?
