Many thanks to others that have donated including:
Secondly, I am calling for submissions for the 2010 Mr Dalek Christmas Story for Staggering Stories
If you don't know who Mr Dalek is, download the stories from here:

You are welcome, and encouraged, to record your own stories, whether they have a backing track or not it's up to you. Otherwise, just send me a written story and I'll narrate it myself. All acceptable submissions will be played/read at the end of the marathon.
Submissions to be sent to email@example.com
I WILL GIVE AWAY A PIECE OF VOLUMINOUS RADIO GEAR JUST FOR THE BEST SUBMISSIBLE STORY.
A couple of suggestions include Santa vs Mr Dalek, the Toy Time War and Mr Dalek vs the Toy Cybermen.

I will read any Staggering Stories submissions, announce contest winners and play any other random things I feel like.
I've gathered an enormous collection of fan created remixes of the Doctor Who theme. I have roughly separated them into 6 genres: Rock/Metal, Ambient, Dance, Industrial, Weird and World. I will be getting the listeners to vote on which genres they would like to hear from in each Whomix segment.
NOTE: Each radio play is the first in a serial. I will be playing the rest of the serials during my Wednesday shows for the rest of the year.
