Community radio station/local supporting legends RTRFM 92.1 celebrate their 40th anniversary this year with a series of events that celebrate the past and look to the future.
The first announced in the series, ‘Neon Picnic’ takes over Hyde Park on Saturday 1 April, a free, family-friendly event, with activities for children all day long, and a licensed bar on site!
Some of our best broadcasters are live to air as they hang out with old friends, former presenters and new kids on the block.
‘Neon Picnic’ also features the best in local music from bands on the radio now, and those that always have been. Expect classics and new favourites performed acoustically and enthusiastically.
It features a performer who’s played them all! Errol H Tout will strum his strings as he’s done so many times before – delivering his unique and otherworldly brand of guitar music.
Three life-long friends of the station and absolute local legends are helping celebrate in style. Alsy MacDonald, Jill Birt and Martyn P Casey will perform several Triffids songs as a trio.
They’re joined by a beloved band coming out of retirement for RTRFM; the poptastic Bank Holidays, with local fuzz-pop legends Turnstyle Lite, the effervescent Simone and Girlfunkle, and suburban singers Verge Collection.
Hip hop master Mathas will be joined by his mates to make magic and mesmerising music, and Jazz giants Gabriel Fatin and Pete Jeavons will hit the blue notes.
