Update : BCB Premises 24th May 2021
As we all know these last 15 months have been really hard for everybody. At BCB we have tried to maintain as much of our activity as possible, particularly in finding new ways of working to keep people actively engaged in BCB. We’re really proud of what’s been possible but we also recognise that this has had both limitations – and consequences.One of the consequences of working remotely has meant a lot more time has to be spent delivering the broadcast schedule. This is true for volunteers who are producing programmes at home and for the staff who are making sure that they’re scheduled and ready for broadcast.

We realise that with so much staff time being spent on delivering the broadcast schedule, other areas have been sidelined. We need to  change this. As we make plans towards reopening the building, a move to new premises and creating a five-year plan for BCB we need to free up some staff time. For this to happen, for a temporary period we are going to make changes to the broadcast schedule, reducing the amount of new programmes that we broadcast. This will affect lots of people’s programmes, with some programmes going from weekly to fortnightly. We’ll be in contact with you directly to explain how this will work. We ask for your support and understanding in this as we build for the future.

And yes – we are now working towards reopening the building, putting things in place for us to be able to return safely to BCB Towers! Watch this space…

Track of the Week

BCB’s Youth Music project aims to showcase music created by young people from around the district. So each week we’re featuring a track by a local artist on our About Bradford and Bradford & Beyond shows.

This week’s track, Better In The End, comes from 15 year old Sienna Craven.
Produced by Danny Yates at City Sound Studios, this is Sienna’s first single, and it’s available on the major platforms.

See our Track of the Week page, to see all featured tracks and for details on how to get your track played on air.
