The day itself will be very different to what was originally planned but still promises to be a special day of remembrance, commemoration and celebration.
VE Day was 75 years ago and HRB will be marking the occasion with a special day of programmes.
Matt Oakley and Neil Ogden will start things off at 8am and 10am respectively previewing what will be happening and remembering what the day is all about. We’ll then join the UK in 2 minutes of silence at 11.
Richard Smith will take an A to Z look at the music and events of 1945 and then from 12pm, a very special 4 hours of programmes as hospital radio across the UK joins up with Absolute Radio 40s for a very special programme.
Hosted by Dave Berry, Jason Manford, Leona Graham and Claire Sturgess,, you are invited to be taken back to the 1940s to celebrate VE Day, with archive interviews, news bulletins and first-hand accounts from veterans and their families.
