It’s been a while since we last gave you an update of everything happening here at Siren FM HQ so we’ve got lots of news for you about some of the things happening here over the Summer. Firstly, as the academic year is now over Behind the Headlines, New Wave, City Vibe and The Linc Weekly are taking a break until September.
However, don’t fret as we have three new shows to the schedule to keep you entertained over the coming months. Every Sunday at 9am we have two new shows called Euranet UK and Network Europe, these are part of the Euranet project that we have been contributing to for a few months now. The shows tackle the big issues affecting Europe and feature content from community radio stations across the UK. The show is repeated on Monday at 12pm.
If you’re a fan of folk music you’ll be pleased with our new show on the first Thursday of the month. At 8pm Alan Ritson brings Siren Folk with interviews from some of the biggest names on the folk scene and the best new music coming from it. Another new show to Thursdays comes from Lawrence Whitaker who brings you a unique mix of comedy and witty banter every week at 6pm.
As well as our new programmes we have a couple of shows returning to the Siren FM schedule; these are Midweek Madams, on every Wednesday at 1pm, and the No Adults Allowed YJA Takeover, on every Monday at 4pm.
On the 2nd and 3rd of July the Manhattan Dolls are going to be singing with the band of the Royal Air Force college, the RAF Swing Wing, at this years Royal Air Force Waddington International Airshow. They played there last year and they impressed the audience so much that they are back again this year with the band. They’ll be singing the golden melodies from the golden age of swing music of the 40s. Siren FM’s Thomas Stevens of the Siren Simply Jazz show will be there to
interview them and you’ll be able to hear that interview on his show on Monday 4th July at 8pm.
That’s everything for this week, we’re going to be giving you weekly updates from now on so look out for more station news next week.
