Radio Local is a pop up radio station built with, and for, those local to it and broadcasting live over the airwaves of Sonder Radio for the duration of a whole day. Join us for our six hour marathon radio show, made and inspired by Salford’s residents and addressing the festival’s considerations around disability.

This is a magazine style show, so expect chat, music, guests and games. Climb into one of our sheds to help build the show with jingle making and script-writing to be featured on air and, of course, critiqued by ever-present hosts Hunt & Darton. Tune in or come down and enjoy our green room (featuring only green interior and snacks) before making an appearance on the show as a panel member or to share your immediate news. Tea and Hobnobs available all day – obviously.

Commissioned Artist: Byron Vincent focusing his series on people’s fears and neuroses. He is working on the equation that Happiness = the Absence of Anxiety.

Guest Presenters: Live Art duo L.A.L (Life at Large), Kevin Clarke and Amy Pennington.

Come and be local with us!
