Local Radio Day 2018 Highlights

Saturday, 26th May 2018

Radio Harrow marked the third Local Radio Day with a special day of shows ahead of the Bank Holiday Weekend. With programming from the studios, and out in the community, the station joined stations up and down the country in celebrating Proper Local Radio, on a day which is now a firm fixture in the Radio Harrow calendar.

David Reece and Wendy Sherer served up breakfast, the radio show variant, from 8am from studios in Northwick Park, with an exclusive interview with the new Mayor of Harrow, Kareema Kairul, who began her term in office the previous day.

During the morning, presenters Nick Edwards, and Shrey Puranik went on a ‘bus tour’ in the locality, checking in with the studio team at regular intervals.

At midday, Brian Rose celebrated Heroes from Harrow in a special hour long show.

This was followed by a special Walking Tour, curated by Kaye Holland and Sarika Unadkat, which was made especially for Local Radio Day. You can listen back to the Walking Tour in our podcast below:

Following Walk This Way, Charles Biggie was on air with Harrow Goes Pop!

It wouldn’t be Local Radio without local sports, and Noah Abrahams from the Sports Show went on an exclusive behind the scenes tour of The Vale, the home of Wealdstone FC:

Nick and Shrey, fresh from their adventures in Harrow, then took over the reigns at drive, with a special interview with the Heath Robinson Museum ahead of a new exhibition opening at the Museum.

At 7pm, Anna Trevers broadcast a special edition of The Basement Tapes, with the show being made especially for Local Radio Day!
