RadioActive101 on World Radio Day, Friday 13th Feb 2015


To mark this occasion our partners in Portugal were featured on the main national Radio Antena1 (the Portuguese equivalent of the BBC), on radio TSF and on RTP (the public national television channel) as part of World Radio Day.

In Germany there was a show with interviews from the deputy editor of the regional newspaper ‘Rheinzeitung’ on their RadioActive101 national hub. The deputy editor commented in the interview: “I am a bit of jealous, because you have the chance to dig right into your topics without all that daily business pressure”.


In the UK at 2.00pm was a programme on Mental Health and Young People: Experiences and Perspectives. The show explores what different groups of young people in the UK think about mental health, discussing their experiences and giving their perspectives on perceived differences in help and support for mental health issues at school and college.

New Show On Air 4pm (UK Time), Tue 23 Dec 2014 – ‘Alternative Voices’

As Christmas approaches and thoughts turn to family and friends, the holiday season is presented to us within conventional parameters by mainstream media. However, RadioActive101 will be broadcasting a show that presents ‘alternative voices’.   The show reminds us in no uncertain terms of a reality for many people at this time of year – homelessness, exclusion from the education system or dealing with the complexities of addiction.

Please join us at 4pm (UK time), Tuesday 23 December 2014.
