2pm- 3pm –  LGBT Hour with Lisa Kelly – LGBT News, look back and a look ahead at events and special guest Emily Roach will  be quizzed on our topic of the day, Bisexuality, which means all our music also has a link to bisexuality in some way, including a classic 70’s glam rock song!!

3pm-4pm –  Sam and Alex are back with What Rock?  going a little off the beaten track (haha) and doing a Metal show this week!  Focusing on their favourite bands and talking about the history of how it came to be as a genre as well as some of the more interesting bands.
