'Sunday…Late and Live’ launches 9th May

It’s exactly one year since the team behind The Lockdown Late Show launched a special live programme running four nights per week. It was hosted by broadcaster Les Gunn and produced through the Pride Radio studios by Richard Kell, with contributors all based remotely. It ran for three months and contained information, interviews, help and advice that was pertinent to the then first lockdown and received fantastic feedback from the stations that broadcast it.

From next weekend, using many of the original team of contributors,‘Sunday…Late and Live’ www.sundaylateandlive.uk airs from 10pm to Midnight- with chat, calls, laughter and music as its core.

Commenting on the new programme, Les Gunn said:

"Over the last year, we’ve tried to think of the best way of keeping the team together to produce an entertaining weekly programme and with the interest and feedback we’ve had so far, we believe that ‘Sunday…Late and Live’ can become aweekly appointment to listen.

Technology has changed and the options for producing great remote broadcast quality output, means we can all be based at homeandproduced through the fantastic studio facilities at Pride Radio.We can’t wait to go live!"

Richard Kell, Station Director at Pride Radio said:

“When many other radio services are winding down for the night, we want to bring something that’s engaging, fun, informative and interactive. Pride Radio welcomes the choice for late-night local radio and I know Les and the team will deliver a top show. I’m looking forward to our first one.”

Ten radio stations will be taking the new weekly show from the start, including Pride Radio, Zetland FM, Rombalds Radio, Connections Radio, Radio Deeside, Steel FM and Red Army Radio. It’s hoped that it will become a permanent fixture on these and more. A weekly podcast will also be made available to listen to any time.

Radio stations are welcome to take the show and full details/FAQs are available by emailing studio@sundaylateandlive.uk
