Community / Winter programmes return to the radio

Eunice Henderson continues the popular food and drink programme Shetland's Larder, with new presenter Adam Guest.

BBC RADIO Shetland’s winter schedule is back on the airwaves from Monday night, with up to 10 different genres of music, a radio play performed in Shetland dialect and various documentaries and debates on offer.

The season will see the return of long-standing shows like the Books programme, Pitt Lane Sessions and Shetland’s Larder.

The finest Country and Western music is broadcast every month by Shelia Manson and Jim Pearson on Wir Kinda Country.

New programmes include the dialect radio play Da Sam Rodd Wir Ancestors Drave, a running documentary called Zero to Sixty and an 80s music show presented by Neil Robertson.

The regular Friday night programme Give Us A Tune – the longest running music show in the country – will continue, with different guest presenters every week. People are invited to send birthday greetings and other messages to be read out on air to radio.shetland@bbc.co.uk.

The late programmes are broadcast every weeknight between 6.10pm and 7pm on 92.7FM. They are also available to listen to online via the BBC Sounds app, or from the BBC Radio Shetland social media pages.
