Bro Radio increases local programming

29th September 2021

Bro Radio, the local radio station for the Vale of Glamorgan is set to increase its programming - which will see its volunteers produce a minimum of 16 hours of programmes each day.

The changes come after the station recently expanded its monthly programme offering.

On a Tuesday night at 8pm, Eva Lantos will host a new one hour programme featuring female artists and the stories of local women and their achievements. The programme will be followed by the Moonshine Experience, the stations weekly country programme hosted by Craig Parry.

D-Rob's Beat Box, which has been a regular fixture of Friday nights on Bro Radio for the last year will increase to a two hour programme, broadcast each Thursday night from 8pm as Rob delves into his box of classic records.

Each Friday at 7pm, Dafydd Furnahm the stations youngest presenter will countdown the top 10 biggest selling songs of the last week and the potential future hits, in new programme called the Vale Top 10.

Each weeknight from 10pm, the station will wind things down with two hours of chilled out music.

On a Sunday night, Penarth born Jamie Pritchard - who presented with Bro Radio back in 2009 will return to present a new programme to wrap up the weekend.

Operations Director Nathan Spackman "As we begin to return to normality after covid, I'm delighted to see us continuing to increase our schedule of programmes produced here in the Vale of Glamorgan."

"We are keen to hear from local people, organisations and groups who may be interested in volunteering with Bro Radio and would invite those interested to attend our open day on Saturday 2nd October at our new studios at CF61 in Llantwit Major."
