We’re taking a break – but we will be back!

Here at Radio Newark, the team is continuing to keep you entertained and informed during these troublesome times, broadcasting 24/7 as always.

But unfortunately it’s not so easy where Girls Around Town is concerned…

Your favourite Sunday morning slot relies on lots of lovely guests giving up their time to pop into the studio, sharing their stories, both personal and professional, with listeners in live, face-to-face interviews every weekend.

Under normal circumstances, social distancing is the very last thing on on the minds of JuneRosalynRachel and Claire but at the moment circumstances are far from normal of course.

And since the wellbeing of those guests – and of the girls themselves – has to come first, it’s with heavy hearts that Newark’s Fab Four have decided to take a bit of a break.

But don’t despair – just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, they’ll be back!!

Initially, the show will be off air from Sunday 22 March until the end of April, with the option to extend the break further as necessary.

Looking on the bright side, in its place the lovely Ady Crampton‘s show will be broadcast on both FM and DAB – while the girls are away, Ady will play!!

And there’s more…

Some of the stories that would ordinarily have been aired on the show will now be covered in Sunday Best, a new online magazine that was already in the pipeline anyway, along with extra features designed to keep you connected with the GAT team and the other members of its community.

You’ll be able to access it here on the website, free of charge – just watch this space for details of Issue 1, coming soon.

In the meantime, don’t forget to keep an eye on the show’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram feeds for regular posts and pics. And if you’re missing those Sunday morning chats with guests, why not hop over to the podcast page and listen to one or two of the interviews you may have missed?

Above all, please take care and stay safe – looking forward to making a comeback soon but till then, please continue to support Radio Newark by turning on and tuning in

Big hugs to you all –

June, Rosalyn, Rachel & Claire xxxx

The girls are back in town!

At last, the news you’ve all been waiting for – Girls Around Town is back! And with a little help from the first guest of 2018, things will be getting off to a scintillating start with the pulling of a cork – or maybe two…

Join June and Rachel as they raise a glass for a double celebration with Helenka Brown, launching GAT#2 with some of the very first wines grown, pressed and bottled at Hanwell Wine Estate in the rolling countryside of South Nottinghamshire.

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday 4 March to find out what’s in store for the show this spring, when among other things the girls will be joined by members of the new Sunday Supplement team who’ll be sharing their take on some of the hot topics of each month.

Sip, sip, hooray!!

Let’s get digital

It’s official – Radio Newark will be getting digital from 7am tomorrow, Monday 14 November, when the new DAB service launches on Breakfast with Matt and Vicky.

Which means you’ll be able to listen to all your favourite shows – including Girls Around Town, of course – not only in and around Newark but across the whole of Lincolnshire too!

June, Tina and Sue (and all their lovely guests) will be live on FM and on DAB from 10am to 12 noon every Sunday from 20 November. So spread the word – tell your families, friends and colleagues – and don’t forget to hit the ‘Scan’ button on your DAB radio tomorrow morning.

Oh and by the way, you can still listen online if you’re even further afield…
