A Tribute to Karl Dallas

Bradford Festival

On 21 June BCB was very sad to hear of the death of one of our longest serving and most creative volunteers Karl Dallas, after a period of illness.

To celebrate Karl’s life and achievements we will be putting together a special tribute programme for broadcast on BCB.

We are looking to anyone who knew Karl to contribute stories and get involved with the programme. If you wish to contribute to the programme please email jonathan.pinfield@bcbradio.co.uk

How is Bradford reacting to Brexit?

Over the next few months, BCB is looking to a do a series of features and programmes exploring the local impact of Britain’s decision to leave the EU.

The Jo Cox Memorial room – What do you think?

Bradford Festival

In July’s BCB Management Committee it was proposed that the Training Room in BCB studios be renamed The Jo Cox Memorial Room, in honour of the Batley and Spen MP who was tragically murdered on 16 June 2016.

Before we make a decision we want to know the thoughts of our volunteers on the name change. Please email your views on changing the name of the BCB training room to the Jo Cox Memorial Room to joseph.emmett@bcbradio.co.uk

BCB’s Photos and Biogs!

Bradford Community Broadcast

Over the next few months BCB is looking to make some improvements to its website. One of the things we want to drive forward with is the Our Presenters section of the site, and we’re really keen to get more of our presenters on the site with photos and biogs.

To do this, we’re inviting anybody who still needs a presenter picture and/or biog to BCB on the following dates:

Saturday 11 August 11am -12pm
Thursday 18 August 6pm – 7pm

If you wish to attend one of the sessions or cannot attend please email joseph.emmett@bcbradio.co.uk
