Series 31 of The Sound of Sunday with Neil Ogden will start on HRB on Sunday 12 September at 1.30pm.
As ever the show will be packed full of fun and features for a Sunday afternoon as well as, most importantly of course, Music on Demand requests for listeners around the wards.
Our competitions will continue to offer listeners the chance to win a Sound of Sunday pen. There will be the return of the Tell Me When Brain Teaser and the return of Bits of Hits.
Talking of winning, HRB is now part of the Basingstoke Community Lottery, and each Sunday on the show, we’ll promote the winning numbers that were drawn the previous evening. Someone could win up to £25,000.
The regular features of Soap Update, 60 Second Sport and Show Biz and Entertainment will return as will The Quiet Quarter of an Hour each week at 3.
Memory Makers will remember various anniversaries and TV related moments throughout the series starting with some of the music created by those who have starred in Neighbours over the years – as the show marks 35 years on TV in the UK.
The award winning weekly soap Huntsford returns and there will be the latest from the world of podcasts as Sophie Malcolm returns for a second series of Podwatch.
Paul Pennington will have the latest health issues and news in The Word on Health and we’ll reflect on the big local news stories of the week.
Once a month we’ll have requests for St Thomas Care Home in Basingstoke in Residents Requests and The Community Hour will make a return for two shows just before Christmas.
And talking of Christmas, we’ll have our usual big Christmas extravaganza to launch HRB’s Christmas schedules, and with the return of pantos, we’ll hopefully be catching up with some of the cast of our local Christmas shows.
And not is the show on the radio each week, but The Sound of Sunday Extra Time is back online as Superman 1940s Style continues. Download an episode each Sunday from 5pm from The Sound of Sunday website and watch out for other content as part of the online offering too.
And talking of online, you’ll notice a few changes to the show’s website too. The new look Sound of Sunday website is coming soon.
