Hackney Social Radio

A new 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.

This project is made possible by funding from the Arts Council and The Fore Trust’s RAFT Fund and support from Hackney Council’s Cultural Development Team, HCVS and Connect Hackney. Programmes are developed in partnership with local intergenerational station Reel Rebels Radio and broadcast on our host station Resonance 104.4FM

If you are a local artist, community group or organisation and would like to be featured on the programme, contact us on 0207 923 8362 or email hsr@immediate-theatre.com.
