Stay tuned – we’ll be back soon!

If you were listening in last Sunday, you’ll already know about this but just in case you missed it…

There’s good news and bad news – the bad news is that the Girls Around Town are hanging up their headphones for a little while but there’s good news too – your favourite Sunday morning show will be back before you know it!!

Good luck to Tina, who’s leaving the show to concentrate on BELOVED@THEBARN, her new business in Southwell. And a big ‘thank you’ to Phil who’ll be keeping those headphones warm for us while we’re away with his Sunday Breakfast Show from 8am till 12 noon – we promise to reward him with cake when we return…

In the meantime, we’re already making plans for GAT#2, lining up lots of great guests and working on at least one regular new feature. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and watch out too for news of what we’ve got in mind for the relaunch – the details are still under wraps for now but we promise there’ll be something a little bit special about the first show.

And as you’d expect, there’ll probably be cake involved as well!

Until then, if you’re missing your Sunday mornings with Radio Newark’s answer to Loose Women and Woman’s Hour, don’t forget that you can always listen again to the podcasts featuring some of the awesome guests who’ve joined us in the studio over the past year…

We’ll still be sharing stories about what’s going on in and around Newark over the next few months so let us know if you have events and activities you’d like us to feature here.

And if you have an interesting story to tell or you’re an expert in a field you think would be of interest to GAT listeners, why not get in touch to add your name to the guest list for next year? Just email or – we’d love to hear from you!

Have a happy Christmas and a great New Year – keep warm this winter and we’ll see you next spring!!
