FromeFM are broadcasting a one-hour programme featuring the three episodes of the new radio play by the Somerset Wassail Theatre Company. 

FromeFM report, “Thwarted by Covid-19 and the lockdown, and unable to perform live, Wassail have tried their hand at producing a radio play for the first time. What is very topical is that the theme of the play is community radio! Each episode features local actors playing radio hosts and members of the public in ‘call-in’ sections, along with sections to highlight the work of local musicians. 

“Check the What’s On listings on the FromeFM website to find out when this programme will be broadcast, or listen on demand at: www.mixcloud. com/Frome FM/the-wassail-theatre-company-present-radio-zummerzet-290920/.

“FromeFM are also airing a weekly programme under the name ‘Sheer Isolation’, which is built around the ‘Sheer Isolation Podcast’, a podcast produced by Sheer Music promoter, Kieran Moore, and ex-Treefest organiser, Jon Ponting. 

“The core ambition of the podcast is to promote the local music scene in the West of England, from bands to venues, from festivals to soloists. Each edition features an interview with a special guest, together with music news and information on how the music industry in the West Country is coping during the pandemic. 

“The podcast is 30-minutes long, so the remainder of the one-hour programme features music by up and coming artists from the West Country.”

FromeFM director Julian Crawley said, “I am really keen for FromeFM to work with local musicians and venues more. It is part of our remit as a community radio station, and publicity works both ways: we can help each other.” 

If you are a solo artist, or a band, or maybe you make music on your laptop in your bedroom, and you would like to get your material played on FromeFM, please email hello@frome.fm. 

The Sheer Isolation programme currently goes out at 5pm on Thursdays and 12pm on Fridays: 96.6fm locally or online at frome.fm. Or listen to it on demand at www.mixcloud. com/FromeFM/playlists/sheer-isolation/
