Listening to the show live is a great way to get involved. You get to hear the show before everybody else and you can chat with other listeners at the same time. You can also contribute directly to the discussions and get your comments included in the show.

We usually broadcast live on selected Tuesday evenings between about 20:30 and 21:30 UK Time. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed to know when we’re going live.

Remember, we only broadcast live fortnightly on a Tuesday evening. If you click the link and we’re not broadcasting, you’ll just get an error. We use icecast to broadcast the show, so if you’re using Linux, Windows or a Mac you should just be able to click on the link and listen in your usual media player. We switch it on about half an hour or so before we start broadcasting and if you hear some old time music then we’re probably not ready yet, or we’re drinking tea and eating cake. You can find out when we are next recording from our Calendar.
