Worldwide FM: The Women of Pirate Radio

For anyone that missed it, I guested on Kate Hutchinson’s Worldwide FM show Thursday 8th March, as part of the station’s all-women line-up of programmes for International Women’s Day 2018.

It was fun, and great to meet DJs Elayne and Camilla – who I’d either grown up hearing/seeing in media, or reading about their involvement in LWR, Dread Broadcasting Corporation etc. Definitely could’ve done with being a 2-hour show, at least!
