The Wolverhampton Politics Show starts tonight at 7pm. Here’s how you can listen:
Joining me in the studio for this first show are Labour activist and blogger, Political Penguin, and Conservative candidate for Wolverhampton South West, Paul Uppal.
You can join in:
- Phone: 01902 57 22 57
- Text: 60300, start message with “WCR POLITICS”
- Email: email@example.com
It’d be great if a couple of people could phone in, as I’ve no idea how many listeners the show will actually get
Starting on Friday 27th July I’ll be presenting a new weekly show on WCR FM.
From 7pm to 8pm I’ll cover what’s going on in Wolverhampton politics and also look at the wider political scene from a Wolverhampton perspective. Each week I’ll have a couple of studio guests, interviews, debate and reports from around the city.
I’m going to take a fairly broad view of what counts as politics; it’s not going to be party political yawn-inducing tribalism. Of course, politicians will be on there: Wolverhampton South West MP Rob Marris is a guest on 7th September, for example.
I think Wolverhampton deserves a show that scrutinises the city’s politicians, that has an open debate about different ways of doing things and that represents the broad sweep of opinion and life in the city.
Some names familiar to readers of this website will pop up, too: Jono will be on to talk about free software and Stuart will be talking about digital rights.
If you’re in Wolverhampton, you can get WCR FM on 101.8 FM. Alternatively, you can listen to a live stream from the WCR FM website and I’ll be making the show available as a podcast from www.wolverhamptonpolitics.co.uk
So remember: 7pm – 8pm UK time on 27th July! There’ll be a phone-in each week too – 01902 57 22 57
Here it is again, the greatest free software event that has ever graced the face of WORLD Earth (as Ted Jesus Christ God likes to refer to our planet).
LugRadio Live is happening this weekend at the Light House Media Centre, Fryer Street, Wolverhampton; but you didn’t need me to tell you that.
This weekend will be a little strange for me. Having left LugRadio as a full time presenter, I was only involved in the early stages of planning for this LRL. Also, not being on stage during the intro or LugRadio Live and Unleashed will be very odd.
If you’re going to LRL, come find me and say hello. This year, I won’t be insanely busy
