Hackney Social Radio

A weekly radio programme for the young at heart. Broadcasting Wednesdays 11am-12pm on Resonance 104.4FM

Radio for the young at heart

Hackney Social Radio was developed as an extension of our Theatre Exchange work with over 55s. The programme addresses digital isolation amongst older people, creating a sense of community through the airwaves.

Broadcasting weekly on Wednesdays, programmes have a presenter-led, magazine style, featuring music requests, audience phone-ins, stories from the community, features from local artists, interviews and advice from experts with regular up-to-date information about where to access help and support. Programmes are broadcast on our host station Resonance 104.4FM

After the success of our initial 15-week pilot series, funded by the Arts Council and The Fore Trust, we are delighted to return for a second series! Thanks to funding from The Henry Smith Charity and DCMS through the Community Match Challenge, we are able to continue producing Hackney Social Radio through to July 2021! We continue to work with our partners Hackney Council’s Cultural Development Team and Connect Hackney.
