Service Information

Outages and other technical problems affecting transmission will be reported here.
Sunday 7th November 2021: a scheduling error meant that we didn't broadcast Second Hand Songs at 19:00 GMT and consequently programmes ran an hour early until 21:28 GMT when the fault was corrected and correct programming resumed.
