Today I was invited to do the newspaper review on the local community radio station Reading4U. I must admit to not having heard of the station before now. However, it is a great outfit broadcasting on the Internet 24 hours a day, with a mix of local news, music and community groups input.
Today the programme ran from 12 midday to 2pm with Zofia Zkrakowski and we were discussing stories in the national papers as well the Reading Post and Chronicle. Naturally we spent some time on the unfolding tragedy in Japan and the Gaddafi fightback in Libya but we also discussed my bicycle hire scheme which I am taking to the Cabinet tomorrow night, park and ride around Reading and the recent Council budget.
Now that I know the station exists I will try to listen in from time to time and I encourage you to do the same.
