Swindon 105.5 community radio
'Birds and Bees' environmental show
28th April 2022
Swindon 105.5 is an informative, entertaining, and empowering community radio station run by and for local people. After many years of hosting the popular 'Birds and Bees' programme, busy local environmental campaigner Glynis Hales has stepped down as presenter. We thank her for her excellent work in raising the profile of environmental issues, local initiatives, groups and their work.
3 new presenters are taking over the mantle. Important issues will be explored along with the work of local groups / people. This will include plastic pollution and Plastic Free Swindon. All 3 presenters contribute to the campaign in various ways. The show takes place each Friday 2-3pm and is also available on catch up. If you have something of interest that you would like to contribute to the show, please get in touch.
The importance of independent media
Concentrated UK media ownership is enabling those with wealth and power to disinform and manipulate the public. This manipulation is key to the furthering of oppression, to the obscene levels of inequality that we are currently experiencing. Inequality is core to social and environmental crises, including plastic pollution. According to Oxfam's Inequality Kills report, income inequality "is a stronger indicator of whether you will die from COVID-19 than age".
So to overcome oppression and deal with environmental crises, it's vital that we find other avenues to communicate important information. Find out what's really going on. Support your local radio station, listen to the new 'Birds and Bees' show!
