From 1st February, we are changing the way most monthly programmes are heard on Radio Kidnappers.

Most of these will now have their own dedicated slot at a particular time of the week, every week.

For example, "Library Live!" up until now has been heard only on the 2nd Friday of each month, at 1pm. From now on, it can be heard each Friday at 1pm.

These programmes will still be refreshed monthly, and on the in-between weeks we will play repeats of previous episodes.

Check out the Schedule page to find out when you can hear your favourite programmes (some will have new days or times altogether) - each and every week!
