Community radio station RTRFM 92.1 celebrates its 40th anniversary this year beginning with a family friendly picnic and outside broadcast showcasing the sounds of the past and the present.
Some of RTRFM’s best broadcasters will be live to air and local bands will play in the park. Errol H Tout will strum his strings as he’s done so many times before, while Alsy MacDonald, Jill Birt and Martyn P Casey will perform several Triffids songs as a trio. They’re joined by a beloved band coming out of retirement for RTRFM; the poptastic Bank Holidays, with local fuzz-pop legends Turnstyle Lite, the effervescent Simone and Girlfunkle, and suburban singers Verge Collection. Hip Hop Master Mathas will be joined by his mates to make magic and mesmerising music, and Jazz giants Gabriel Fatin and Pete Jeavons will hit the blue notes.
There will be activities for children all day long plus a licensed bar for the grown ups.
