Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 26th February – 4th March

Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard – 26th February – 4th March

Welcome back to the Wandsworth Radio Noticeboard, a showcase for all of our exciting and exclusive content here at the station. You can listen to all of this and more live on our website (just click the LISTEN link up in the corner!) or via the TuneIn Radio app. There is lots of great stuff here so please do make sure to tune in!

Monday 26th sees February ending on a feel-good note as Akylah Rodriguez hosts #NewMusicMonday.

CoffeePot Drive will be on with Akylah on Monday.

We have the amazing CoffeePot Drive on the show, who are described as being “characterized by warm, soaring backing vocals,” so don’t miss this one from 1pm.

That very evening, Tom King goes behind the scenes at the Oval House Theatre to hear all about their play “Little Soldiers Derailed“, which is running until March 3rd, for Artswatch. He meets Patricia Rodríguez and Mercè Ribot – directors of ‘Little Soldier Productions’ and performers in ‘Derailed’ – about what inspired them to host a Brexit leaving party that begins with punk and Prosecco and builds into a touching and comical reminiscence of twelve years spent living, working and performing in the UK. Catch this all at 6:30pm.

Sinéad Loftus speaks to Artswatch this week about SPAN Homes.

On Tuesday, Lesley Strachan hears about SPAN Homes. 10 documentaries were made about SPAN Homes and were screen at the Royal Academy of Art, and Lesley was there meeting Sinead Loftus of Chocolate Films to find out what made SPAN HOMES so unique and why they had been chosen as the subject for documentary film. Artswatch is live from 6:30pm.

Also on Tuesday, join The Irish Jam‘s team, who meet Jim O’Donoghue Martin aka Video Blue. Curious? Tuesday from 10pm.

Then on Wednesday, sax-punk radicals GUTTFULL come to the studio to talk about their forthcoming single and live dates, so tune into The Joyzine Radio Show from 7pm and catch this top band!

March starts with Ian Barclay interviewing Natalie Radmall-Quirke who plays Valerie in Conor McPherson’s chilling classic, ‘The Weir’, at Richmond Theatre. What secrets are revealed one stormy night in Brendan’s pub? Running until 3 March at Richmond Theatre, you can learn about it all from 6:30pm on Thursday 1 March.

 

The Female Friday Team (anti-clockwise from top right), Chloe De Save (She Speaks), Nicolette Wilson-Clarke (Mind Your Business), and Ayesha Casely-Hayford (Afro Archives). Launches Friday 2 March.

I am also very excited to be launching our FEMALE FRIDAY brand this week. With Chloe hosting She Speaks, we are delighted to launch two new programmes on a Friday between 2pm and 4pm. Firstly from 2pm, join Nicolette Wilson-Clarke, our long-standing volunteer, as she launches Mind Your Business!, a show all about women entrepreneurs, particularly those in Wandsworth! Hear about all of the daily challenges of running a successful business. Then from 3pm, a brand new programme from the wonderful Ayesha Casely-Hayford celebrating black women, afro hair, and discrimination. I for one am so excited for this! The show is called Afro Archives and this week she will be talking hair, afro-futurism and The Black Panther. Not one to miss. I am looking forward to building this brand further! There’ll be more on FEMALE FRIDAY in another post this week.

 

As you can see, Wandsworth Radio is full of fantastic, brilliant content as we continue to serve our wonderful and vibrant community. It is well worth tuning in throughout the week – you might find a show which you will just fall in love with!
