There's always one house on the street that goes above and beyond with Christmas Lights, a Rudolph with a flashing nose, huge blow-up snowmen on the lawn and Santa's sleigh across the top of the roof.


Does that sound like your family? 

For the last three years, Eagle Radio has been visiting homes across Surrey and Hampshire in December to switch on our listener's Christmas Lights. This year it's Drivetime Presenter Simon Rose's turn to switch on your lights and to get the party started.

If your kid's love Christmas, you've got to put your name down for this!

What is Simon's Switch Ons? 

Presenter Simon Rose wants to switch on your Christmas lights this year! 🎄

We'll bring the Eagle Radio Drivetime show to your house one day in early December, broadcast live across Surrey and Hampshire from your living room and turn on your lights with your family and friends.

All you need to do is get the Aunties and Uncles, Nan's and Grandads and your children's school friends round for a big party, put the cheese and pineapple on sticks and Simon will make it a Christmas you'll never forget.

The Set Up

So you've got the family around and the buffet sorted all ready for Simon to broadcast his drivetime show live from your living room. Don't worry he won't turn up with a whole studio, it's a very small set up!

Presenting On The Radio

You will get to talk LIVE on Eagle Radio, and your children can have a go, give shout-outs to their school, sing a Christmas song or just help present the travel news. How many other radio stations let you do that?! It's an experience they'll never forget 🎙

Special Guests
