Hunt & Darton
Saturday 9 May, 12.00pm
Norwich City Centre
Welcome to Radio Local – a brand new radio station, broadcasting live, straight from your high street – for one day only. Hosted by deadpan duo Hunt & Darton, Radio Local is exactly that: local. It’s built with, by and for local people, telling your stories, sharing your news, playing your jingles. Taking over the airwaves of Future Radio for an epic 24 hours of radio magic. Celebrating voices from across Norfolk and Norwich direct from Gentlemans Walk and, in the lead up, building radio with the surrounding towns of Great Yarmouth, Kings Lynn and Diss.
This show celebrates everything about what it means to be local. We love the local chippy that asks how your week’s been, pubs and cafés that are surrogate families and extensions of the home, people taking pride in where they live, doing things for the community and noticing when someone is ill. This is hyper-local radio. The food review is from nearby cafés, jingles are generated live in our shed, the issues we discuss are collected from a public chalk board. The news is someone’s news, not the mainstream news, and we re-enact a soap opera written over the day on a typewriter set up for all to use. Come and make radio with us!
