This week disability activist and raDNO ‘Moggy Mobile’ presenter, Andy Morris, will continue to look at accessibility and other issues affecting disabled people in Leicester. Andy will be joined in the studio by Panj Pani Radio leader Sukhdev Singh Aujla to talk about the latest progress in finding new studio space. Andy will also be receiving a phone call from a very special guest from Lapland. Andy will also be going retro by playing his music choices on vinyl.
Down Not Out News Agency in Leicester hosts its last raDNO show for 2013 with live ‘on air’ ‘Confidence Through Broadcasting’ training over the internet on Panj Pani Radio today between 12 pm and 4 pm.
Down Not Out is a news agency run by people with experience of homelessness or vulnerable housing. Funded by the Big Lottery it was formed from a partnership between local charity, Action Homeless, and Citizens’ Eye Community News Agency.
Simon Parker, Down Not Out News Agency coordinator said: “I think DNO has made a good start in developing raDNO but there is a lot more to do – especially in getting more people involved. If you are interested just come along – there will be no pressure to speak if you don’t want to – and some of our best contributors started by saying they would never go on air. All we’re looking for is enthusiasm and the ability to drink tea, coffee or another (non-alcoholic) drink of your choice.
Anyone who is interested about getting involved in raDNO can contact:
Simon Parker said: “It’s great that the show will be hosted on Panj Pani Radio as the station is hosted by the NHS Partnership Trust. It allows us to explore the positive, confidence and self-esteem development that broadcasting training can bring and allows us to look at health issues around homelessness.”
