Ramin Karimloo, Hadley Fraser and Kerry Ellis to present on new Stage Door radio station

West End stars which so far include Ramin Karimloo, Hadley Fraser, Kerry Ellis, Louise Dearman, Alex Gaumond, Mark Evans, Louise Bowden and Oliver Tompsett. are to present shows on a new  radio station dedicated to musical theatre which will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will be accessible online.

Stage Door is a partnership between independent production company Wise Buddah (Terry Wogan’s BBC Radio 2 Sunday show) and agency Mothership Management, which represents a number of  musical theatre performers.

It has been estimated that the cost of running the station for the first year will be £145,000 which will hopefully raised with the help of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign launched to encourage musical fans to pledge money.  The organisers say this will enable fans to “have a voice in deciding what content they want to hear and stop the station being dependent on investors who are looking for a return on their investment".

To encourage pledges they are offering incentives including singing lessons with one of the presenters and the chance to record a show for the station. To pledge money click on  this link.
