A radio station based in south east Northumberland is planning more outside broadcasts, as they move into their second week on the airwaves.
Bedlington-based community radio station, Synergy, which broadcasts to south east Northumberland on 87.7FM and beyond on synergyradio.co.uk, is using its outside broadcasting equipment for sporting and other public events.
On Saturday morning the station’s Neal Younger was broadcasting live from a craft fair in Morpeth Town Hall, pictured, which followed his stint the previous Saturday amongst stallholders at Blyth Market.
This coming Saturday, August 31, between 8am and 10am listeners will be able to hear Neal chatting live to people in Woodhorn and Ashington.
“It really is great getting out and about and interviewing people and finding out about what they are doing,” he said.
“My chats with people are relayed live and mixed with music output from back in the studio.
“As a community radio station we are committed to promoting community activities like the craft fair and Blyth market, so what better way of doing it than via this – live direct coverage of events as they happen?”
Synergy is also increasing its live relays from football matches involving Bedlington Terriers, Ashington CFC and Blyth Spartans.
The radio station is scheduling up to 100 hours of live broadcasting a week until the end of its current licence on September 13.
To listen to Synergy tune into 87.7FM or visit synergyradio.co.uk to listen online.
