A Shout Out to the Gay Community on Bristol’s BCFM
On Saturday 9th July 2011, the beginning of Bristol Pride week BCFM’s ShoutOut show will be taking to the airwaves for a whole day of broadcasting aimed at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community and their friends.
The day will be a mixture of music, guests and chat both serious and not so serious! It will run from 10am until midnight on BCFM, which is the community station for Bristol where all the shows are made by volunteers. On an average week you will hear about 45 different programmes being broadcast on the station by many different types of people who represent an area, age, religion, agency or just themselves! BCFM broadcasts in about nine different languages and aims to represent the whole of Bristol and Bristol life.
This Saturday is special because for the first time BCFM is devoting a whole day to the LGBT community. The ShoutOut show has been broadcasting since June last year, starting in a half hour lunchtime slot and growing to an hour long show which now broadcasts every Thursday at 7pm. ShoutOut has built up a loyal listenership and recently broke the record for the most downloaded show on the stations website ever.
You can listen to BCFM within Bristol on 93.2fm and also from anywhere with an internet connection at bcfm.org.uk.
This day has been made possible with sponsorship from Unite the Union.
