Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 25th June-1st July

Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 25th June-1st July

Hi all!

We haven’t had a Noticeboard on the website for a while but it is back with a bang! We’ve got lots of interesting stuff to come this week, so read and enjoy!

On Monday, Artswatch is fronted by Harriet, who talks about the Heritage Trail App. The Heritage Trail will take you on a journey around Circus West Village, the first phase of the Battersea Power Station redevelopment. Journalist and broadcaster Jonathan Freedland will be your guide through the Power Station’s history through the ages. The trail is an audio-lead experience, with transcripts and images at each location you’ll visit triggered by GPS. You can experience it on location, or you can listen from home if you’d prefer. Hear more about the app on Monday night from 6:30pm.

Then on Tuesday, Artswatcher Kevin Durjun visits a brand new arts venue in the heart of Streatham and is blown away by its community spirit. Interested in learning more about the people and the place? You can hear all about it from 6:30pm.

Speaking of People and Places, Pamela and Mike meet the crew who man the RNLI lifeboat station at Chiswick. This station covers the Thames as it flows through Wandsworth. It’s the RNLI’s newest station and one of the first stations to cover a river rather than the sea. Who or what is the Chelsea Pensioner, the Joan and Kenneth Bellamy and the Dougie and Donna B? Clue – you can get a lifeboat named after you! Wednesday night from 6:30pm.

On Thursday’s Artswatch, Steve learns all about At Home in Gaza and London, on at the Battersea Arts Centre

from 1st July. At Home in Gaza and London follows the lives of people living in two locations separated by great political, economic and physical divides. By using a mix of live-streaming and recorded video, a single performance space is created where artists work together. They occupy each other’s homes, streets and other social spaces. Sharing their everyday behaviour and concerns, they dissolve into each other or become ghostly protagonists in the drama. Hear more about this fantastic piece directed by Julian Maynard Smith & Taghrid Choucair-Vizoso from 6:30pm.

This Saturday we are live from the Falcon Road Festival! The event will be on from 12 noon through to 6pm, with a range of stalls and activities available. If you want to feel the festival vibes make sure to tune in and, if you’re around the area, come and visit our stage! We will be on Este Road all day.

On Saturday, Steve’s guests will be the band The Counteracts. Simon and Doug will be chatting to Steve about their songs, their cover versions and I’m sure Doug will tell us all about his Wandsworth connection! This is all on the Retro Chart Show from 8pm.

Finally, start July with Ian Barclay on Barclay’s Brunch. Let’s face it, we all love a good power ballad. And on Sunday’s ‘Barclay’s Brunch’ between 11 and 1pm, Ian talks to Julia Croft about her one-woman show entitled ‘Power Ballad’ which is at the Battersea Arts Centre for just 3 performances of what is described as ‘part performance lecture, part karaoke party’. Tune in to find out more.
