Bro Radio Studio Prep

Notes (Not to be read on air):

Durning these difficult times, we are going to be relied upon to provide relevant, local information whilst keeping things upbeat and postive.

This sheet will be updated with local pieces, stories and information to promote throughout the coming weeks.

Key lines to push:

  • The station that loves the Vale
  • We are your local radio station for the Vale of Glamorgan
  • Don't forget you can also listen to us on your smart home speaker, simply ask it to "play Bro Radio"
  • Saying live from home is perfectly fine!

Talking Points:

BBQ Jukebox With Farmers Pantry: Monday 25th - Friday 29th ONLY

"It's National BBQ Week and we have teamed up with Farmers Pantry for our Barbecue Jukebox. Our noisy neighbours were having a particularly loud barbecue yesterday, but at least they were playing some great music.

Listen to this clip and tell us what track they're playing. If you get it right, you're in with a chance of winning a 24 piece BBQ kit from the wonderful Farmers Pantry. *36 piece on Friday*

All details on entry can be found on the Bro Radio website, and if you need another listen, check out today's clip on our social media!"

The Vale's Biggest Radio Show - Hosted by You!

As you know, Bro Radio is the station that loves the Vale and everything we do is for our community, and so, this June, for one whole day, we're handing the station over to you, our local community!

This is your chance to talk about you, your business, organisation or group for a few minutes to the Vale of Glamorgan. You can talk about lockdown, community spirit, the dedication of key workers, send a message to friends and loved ones or even devote the time to that organisation, business or individual thats helped you get through lockdown.

You don't need any fancy kit, a smooth voice, or experience, just your smart phone and two minutes of your time.

Send us your recordings to by Friday 12th June, to air on Monday 15th June 2020.

Unheard Voices:

Coming up in the next few weeks we’re going to be featuring the stories of people with disabilities and finding out how they are coping with life in lockdown.

If you’re a Bro listener, living with a disability and you’d like to share your story, get in touch.  It won’t take much of your time but it means that you get to tell us how your life has changed in the past 2 months and give a shout out to the people who are supporting you. 

To find out more, contact Sara at Sixteen Media on or tweet @mediasixteeen for more information.
