GTFM 107.9 FM

Ian Edwards

Host of ‘The Little Monday Night Show’ – Mondays 7-8pm (except first Monday of the month) & Drivers Seat (First Thursday of the Month)

Inspired by Community Link (10am-1pm), the show features topical interviews with individuals, charities, clubs, groups, schools, colleges, churches and non-profit organisations, that are based and work within the community of RCT (…and sometimes beyond).

The show is topped off with a sprinkling of music plucked from across several decades.

Other (occasional) features include

  • The Car “Torque” Spot: Keeping car enthusiasts up-to-date with motoring events happening locally (and not so locally) with the occasional topical motoring related interview
  • The Running Round-Up: On the last show of every month, this feature provides information on local and national running events, plus interviews with local (and not so local) running groups and clubs.

The show is all about engaging, entertaining and informing YOU! Covering a wide and diverse variety of subjects, issues and interests. Through the guests: to inspire, encourage and engage with clubs and charities etc from within the community of RCT.

The show provides a platform for clubs and charities alike to share their aims, hopes and ambitions with you, thus helping to raise their profile and gain wider support.

So … if you’re part of a charity, a group, a club, a school, a church, a college or non-profit organisation that you (or someone you may know) are involved with and would like to be featured on an upcoming show, or have a fund raising or charity event that you would like to promote – get in touch: ian@gtfm.co.uk
