This week at East London Radio has been a very exciting one. We have had more than 10 new volunteers this week with some really exciting ideas for new shows on ELR, over 2000 hits on our website on Friday…in just one day(!!) AND we got a brand new member joining our team; our new station manager Orlaith all the way from Ireland.

Also this week some of the team went to visit Spotlight a “multi-million pound creative youth space designed to inspire” and we were definitely feeling inspired after our time there. So great to meet such enthusiastic people and see their terrific premises.


This week on Sports N All we heard part 2 of the amazing interview with Mark Prince, former international IBF&WBO World Champion and now anti-knife crime ambassador. To listen to that pod cast click here.

We also met with former Olympian, Jeanette Kwakye about working together on some fantastic new projects for ELR.

Our volunteer Felicity Davies has been wandering around Hackney Wick recording sounds for
Sonic Postcards of where our studios are based.

And finally, keep your eyes peeled for our brand new app coming soon to iOS and Android devices making sure you can listen in live to ELR wherever you go.
