You can tune in every Thursday night between 8.30pm and 10pm on 98.8 FM in and around Edinburgh and online via www.leithfm.co.uk. You can also join in the chat during the show on the “Where The Action Is (Radio Show)” Facebook page.
Requests are welcome for the show, including the features, and I’ll try and accommodate them all, although it may take a couple of weeks to slot them all in.
The first of my special themed shows will take place in a fortnight on Thursday 24 February. More details next week.
That’s it for this week. Until next time, it’s good day and good health.
