Following the successful launch and run of the weekly radio programme featuring the songs and music from our 40+ year music history and back catalogue called “THE PLANKTON PLAYLIST” on UK radio station FLAME CCR, programme host and Plankton Records partner Keith Dixon announced news of two special programmes to be broadcast at the end of August.
Keith shared “I’ve been trying to pull this together for some time and I’m delighted to confirm that due to the miracles of Zoom and coordinated diaries that my pal, my partner in crime at the label and the founder of Plankton Records SIMON LAW is joining me to co-host two special editions of THE PLANKTON PLAYLIST where we will talk about our (the label’s) long association and involvement with the Greenbelt Festival – the UK Christian arts festival.”
“We are going to try and cover Simon, mine and the label’s history with the festival dating back to 1974 and up to the present day and we will be playing music by Plankton artists who have appeared at the festival over the years. The biggest challenge is going to be trying to squeeze in everything we want to say and share into 2 x 30 minute radio programmes! Once Simon and I start talking music and Plankton it’s hard to keep un concise and on-track!”
“The programmes will be going out at 1.00pm BST (lunchtime) on Sunday August 22nd and 29th and each special will be repeated on Monday at 9.30pm, Thursday at 4.30pm and Friday at 9.30pm during the week of their broadcasts. I can’t wait for these programmes I think they are going to be brilliant and of course the songs featured will be added to our Spotify playlist of the same name which when these programmes are added will be feature over 100 Plankton Records released songs!”
Broadcasting in Flame’s local area (Merseyside and North Wales) on 1521 MW, the station and the programme can also be listened to via major internet portals/apps Worldwide (such as Tune In or Radioplayer) or via Amazon Alexa/Echo ( Say “Alexa, open Radioplayer”.
