3Bs Radio will be at the monthly farmers’ market in the Town Square on Sunday (May 7) between 10am and 1pm.

Presenters will be interviewing stallholders and local residents, and would welcome anyone to come along to chat and be live on air for the morning show.

One of the station’s founders, Keith Lewis, of Steeple Claydon, said: “We are very excited about kicking off the coronation celebrations on Sunday.

“We would love people to come and see us at the farmers’ market and tell us about their coronation weekend.

“The stalls at the market are great and we are looking forward to sharing details of them with our listeners as it is no ordinary market – there are really interesting stalls.

“We would love to meet as many people from Winslow and the surrounding area as we can, so do come down between 10am and 1pm and we’ll be delighted to chat to you on or off air.”

The new station, which is making announcements about events in the community and supporting the local area’s events, launched in September and already has almost 30 presenters.

Some shows are devoted to a particular type of music, such as rock or country, and there is a new acoustic show with live performances. Others feature interviews with key local figures.
