It’s your last chance to book for Monday’s event in Manchester, Musicians On The Radio! Join our North West Branch for a fantastic evening with two of the world’s most iconic musicians – Mike Joyce, of The Smiths, and Clint Boon, of Inspiral Carpets – in conversation with the BBC’s Mike Sweeney in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
As musicians, both played their part in defining a generation, but are now also established radio broadcasters. Don’t miss this opportunity to spend an evening with true giants of the industry in Manchester’s cultural epicentre.
Doors open 7.30pm on Monday 10th March at Gulliver’s Bar, 109 Oldham St, Manchester. For more info and to book (members free / non-members £5), just click here.
Commiserations if you were hoping to grab a last minute place at our North East Branch event on Tuesday, Big Voices featuring Peter Dickson (The X Factor) and Alan Dedicoat (Strictly Come Dancing), in conversation with John Myers about the impact of voiceover and narration. The event is now completely SOLD OUT!
London Branch: Who’s On Line 1?
We’ve got a bit of a lively one coming up for our next London Branch Event on Wednesday 26th March – Who’s On Line 1? James O’Brien & Iain Lee In Conversation.
Former LBC colleagues – and occasional good-natured rivals – James and Iain will reunite for this special event where they’ll adopt the roles of both interviewer and interviewee, taking it in turns to quiz each other on the art of the phone-in.
Doors open 6pm on Wednesday 26th March at Gibson Guitar Studio, 29-35 Rathbone Street, London, W1T 1NJ. For more info and to book (members free / non-members £10), just click here.
Weeping into your latte at the realisation that you can’t make the event? We don’t blame you, but cheer up – you can still follow the event throughout the night on Twitter via @radioacademy and #RACallNow.
In RadioTalk this week, Paul speaks to Lynn Parsons, who has just left her weekday morning show on Smooth Radio, the latest chapter in her career as one of Britain’s most loved female DJs, which has also included BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2.
And of course, we have more gems from the week in radio history with David Lloyd’s Radio Moments. Happy listening!
