As we continue with the lockdown 4LEGS Radio also continues to inform and entertain. Regardless of the restrictions in place we are still able to provide the normal schedule between 7am and 4.30pm. Here’s what’s on offer this week:
We start with Pete Brady’s mix of music and his featured artists The Hollies. There’s news of the Racing industry from a welfare perspective, plus the impact that no racing is having and when it’s likely to resume. There’s another update on the Art Competition that’s being run to raise funds for Trindledown and we’ll find out about a video taken via a drone from the air of Eastbury folk. Two local publicans will chat about the services they have on offer and a bird rescuer explains how she’s busy trying to save abandoned fledglings from certain death. There’s an interview with a shopkeeper about the problems he faces with his business in the current climate and a number of people share ideas and options to help us use all this extra time that we now have. You can test your music knowledge with the regular pop quiz and there’s local news and information, interesting amusing stories, and of course a stack of great music. Enjoy!
