estm has been assisting Maverick Theatre Company producer Nick Hennegan with a fundraising scheme to revive his "Romantica" radio show for Valentines day. The show, with music and dedications for those romantically inclined, attracted millions of listeners to Birmingham's BRMB in the 1980's from muli million pound studios in Aston. But now in the 21st century the show's revival will be broadcast via the internet, from Nick's laptop, on a shoe string!
estm's Ian Edwards says ".. it's been great fun helping Nick set this up, and it's no less a challenge given that he is in London and I am in Shropshire, but hearing his first test transmission took me back to the excitment of those early days."
The first "Romantica" for more than 20 years will be broadcast...
Saturday 12th/Sunday 13th February 2011: 11pm to 3am and repeated
Monday 14th February: 8pm - Midnight.
