It's been almost exactly two months since we cancelled all our gigs, turned out the lights and locked all the doors. But things are happening here at Penarth Acoustic Labs!
A little over a month ago news reached us that a community radio station was being set up in Penarth. Well now it's here! Penarth Sounds/Seiniau Penarth went live on air at 5pm this evening. It's currently Internet only, so you have to go to penarthsounds.co.uk and click on the "Play" icon to listen to the show currently being broadcast, or go to the "listen again" page to catch up with programmes you may have missed. It's not full time yet, so check the schedules on the website, but we're currently broadcasting on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 5pm onwards, and Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Friday evenings at 7pm will be Penarth Acoustic Club's slot, and Phil and I have been beavering away putting programmes together. The first one goes out this Friday, 22nd May, so please spread the word, tune in and enjoy something like what you've been missing for the last couple of months! And don't forget to let us know via the station's feedback page what you think.
If any of you would like to get involved in the station, have ideas for programmes you'd like to hear or like to produce, then please also get in touch via the website, or of course the usual social media channels. Searching for "Penarth Sounds" should turn up what you need.
We may still be locked down here at Penarth Acoustic Club HQ, but all is not quiet - turn the radio on!
