around the clock around the world

We apologise for the loss of all programmes between 15:58 GMT on Wednesday 24th June and 00:21 GMT on Thursday 25th June, as the result of a playout automation failure. Normal service has now been resumed.

The July schedule begins soon. The Tony Currie Show and Random Play are both taking a break. New for the month is the Ewan Spence show, which airs in the time slots vacated by Tony Currie. In place of Random Play we hail the return of Holiday Spin which will be heard every night at 19:00 GMT from July 1st.

We're celebrating Pirate Radio Week at the end of July with some special programmes, and for the duration of the week Holiday Spin will be broadcast simultaneously on Radio Mi Amigo on 106.8MHz in Harwich.

We're sad to learn of the death of Edinburgh-born composer, arranger, orchestrator and conductor Johnny Keating who passed away at the age of 87 on Thursday, 28th May. There will be a special edition of The Lively Lounge devoted to John and his musical life on Friday at 19:00 GMT (8pm UK)with the usual repeats on Saturday June 27th at 08:00 GMT (9am UK), Sunday June 28th at 06:00 GMT (7am UK) and 21:00 GMT (10pm UK) and on Thursday, July 2nd at 097:00 GMT (8am UK).
