Mercia Mix and The Power Mix
line: 'Extended mixes of your favourite music'
Mercia Mix (Mercia FM) & The Power Mix
(Leicester Sound FM) was a non-presenter
led programme of exclusively re-mixed dance and
chart music produced by me, Kevin Sykes.
Originally the programme began broadcasting on
Mercia FM (only) on September 8th 1990 as an
hour long pilot show, the following week (September
15th) the show began in earnest starting at
8:00 pm on Saturday night thro' 'til 10:00pm.
On January 25th 1992 Leicester Sound began
broadcasting the show (The Power Mix) as a
simulcast from Mercia's studios, and later on July
6th 1992 a weekday evening slot started Monday -
Thursday on Mercia FM between 6:20pm - 7:00pm.
Eventually on March the 6th 1993 the show came to
an end albeit the ratings being better than those
program's either side of its scheduled times.
