2024 is set to be a fantastic year on Magenta Radio with new shows, segments and music set to take centre stage throughout the year.
Following a successful reintroduction in September, 'Sunday Talk Time' will be getting a new regular Sunday morning and evening slot, featuring previously unheard recordings from earlier this year. More 'Sunday Talk Time' recordings will be made and aired throughout the year, with occassional special live broadcasts.
Getting the weekend started is 'Is This Speaker Working?', an indie based music show with interviews and performances, showcasing the very best acts and artists the Greater Manchester indie scene has to offer. Recorded in the studio at MediaCityUK in Salford, 2 episodes have already been produced with further episodes set to be recorded throughout 2024.
In spring we'll present our 'Northern Soul Showcase' with artists known and new who've made contributions to the Northern Soul scene both in the UK and around the world. In the summer we present 'Tchic Tchic: French Bossa Nova', exploring the relatively unknown bossa nova circuit in France, in celebration of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Other events and specials will be scheduled throughout the year.
January's playlist update will also be the biggest yet! We're still inviting artists to submit their music to us. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to find out more. We look forward to welcoming more new talent in 2024.
Thank you very much for your continued support of Magenta Radio. The past 5 and a half months have been nothing short of incredible and we look forward to and anticipate your continued patronage in the months and years to come.
