Remembering Ayrton Senna with Mark Gallagher

Remembering Ayrton Senna with Mark Gallagher

Guests, News
Residents of the village of Tilehurst in Reading may be familiar with Ayrton Senna Road. A seemingly random acknowledgement of the Formula 1 legend, three-time world champion, and much-loved superstar who tragically lost his life at Imola in 1994. Quite why it's not Ayrton Senna Drive is another question entirely, but we wanted to explore the reason behind the road naming, so set about investigating. We knew Senna had briefly lived in Reading during the early phase of his career, but beyond that our knowledge was limited. So, we sought expert insight from none other than Formula 1 broadcaster, author and business speaker, Mark Gallagher. Explorer Scout Betsy, host of our Thre3-6ix sports show, spoke to Mark about Ayrton, his life, career, legacy - and of course how he came to live...

Danyl Johnson returns to Thre3-6ix One of the highlights of our previous fundraiser, back in 2019, was the involvement of presenter and singer Danyl Johnson, who joined us live in the studio. The former X Factor semi-finalist chatted with our Explorers on a wide range of topics, including mental health, school life, and Sir David Attenborough! We were even treated to an impromptu rendition of the Jonas Brothers song Sucker. Danyl has been a good friend to our Scout group, 1st Purley & Pangbourne, over the years, visiting a number of our sections to discuss mental health and his Little Help initiative. So, we’re delighted to confirm that Danyl is set to return to the Thre3-6ix studio this weekend as part of our 2024 Malawi fundraiser. We’ll get by with a little help from ou...

Guests, News
Three of our Explorers - Ben, Oscar, and Zachary - were given a behind-the-scenes glimpse into life on the road as a popular comedian, when they met Josh Widdicombe backstage at Reading's Hexagon Theatre. Ahead of his performance at the Big Comedy Bash show on Monday evening, Josh kindly gave up half-an-hour of his time to speak to our intrepid reporters for a special feature for Thre3-6ix Radio. It was truly an access all areas visit as preparations for the show were underway; the Explorers were granted access to the dressing room for the interview, adding a level of exclusivity to proceedings. To hear the full interview, you'll have to tune into Thre3-6ix Radio over the weekend of 10-12 May - but HUGE thanks to Josh for his time, and for the support of our Project Africa fun...

Guests
Yes, you read that correctly! The Chesney Hawkes. Chris and Zachary caught up with the 1991 chart-topper for a special interview ahead of our big Thre3-6ix weekender (May 10-12). Chatting from his home in Los Angeles, Chesney discussed his career to date, from the breakthrough performance in movie Buddy’s Song, which spawned his debut album and the monster chart smash The One and Only. You might have seen Chesney more recently on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, where he was given the surprise of his life as the Unexpected Star Star of the Show. Or perhaps heard The One and Only performed by Alex Brooker on The Masked Singer? Now, we’re bringing Chesney to Thre3-6ix as part of our marathon fundraiser, raising money for our Explorers who are joining the Berkshire Scouts Project Afr...

Reading Half Marathon

On Sunday 14th April those heading to Malawi, their family, and friends headed to Mile 3 to hand out water to the runners, this is something the group has done for many years, started when others went off on international trips, we couldn't do this without all those who join us. Its always a fun time, if not a little busy, and always seams to end with some kind of water fight. Hear more about the fundraising the explorers have got up to during their 36 hour broadcast on the 10th to the 12th May! A special shout out has to go to Dom who's heading to Malawi rather than just help at the water station sent his parents and sisters to the water station, and he himself ran the race! If you want to sponsor Dom's running you can here - https://www.gofundme.com/f/dominics-project-africa...
