Local Radio Day – 24th May

SUSY Radio, along with our colleagues at other LOCAL radio stations up and down the country are joining in to celebrate Local Radio Day again this Friday.

Launched in 2016, the day highlights the value of local radio and celebrates the relationship between radio stations and their listeners. Last year over a hundred radio stations celebrated local radio by doing something extra special in their transmission areas.

As part of our involvement, Chrissy Muir will be presenting her programme from 10am – 12 noon and introducing special guest, Tim Glynne Jones, Organiser of local New Music Nights and New Music Festival. She will also feature some special surprises, and hear from some local people and what they have to say about local radio.


Following Chrissy’s programme,
12 noon – 2pm, join Neil Munday LIVE during our outside broadcast from County Mall shopping centre, Crawley.

Come and visit us between Costa Coffee and Greggs/McDonalds, and say “hello”!

Equine flu crisis strikes at British horse racing

Chrissy Muir caught up with local Lingfield Racecourse member, Ian Byford today to talk about the current state of affairs in the Horse Racing world which is greatly affected by the ban on racing at the present time.

**UPDATE 11th Feb 2019**
Since this story was published, there has been a late evening development.
The BHA have announced a managed return to racing imposing strict bio security measures. The decision to resume racing was taken in a “controlled, risk-managed manner” and supported by an industry veterinary committee said the British Horseracing Authority.
