Brighton's RadioReverb Launches Its Own Politics Show

new radio show is about to be launched, which is destined to become essential listening for any-one interested in what is happening on the political front in Brighton and Hove.

The Reverb Politics Show hits the air-waves on Sunday February 12th at 5pm, and will be hosted by home-grown broadcaster and former city councillor Geoffrey Bowden,who, in a former life, regularly broadcasted on the Armed Forces network BFBS and has run a PR company in London and Brighton for nearly forty years.
 
The Reverb Politics Show will remain politically neutral but will invite guests into Reverb's new studio in Brighton Open Market, to speak about local issues, and put them under the microscope. 

It will challenge those who are making the decisions and will be an opportunity to ask them the questions that listeners really want to hear. 

 
The one hour monthly show will tackle subjects such as youth serve provision in the city, homelessness, healthcare, and what happens now to Brighton and Hove even though the city didn't vote for Brexit!
 
Geoffrey explains "Politics affects everyone, whether people choose to exercise their vote or not.  
"The programme will put the spotlight on those people elected to represent our interests and whose decisions affect all our lives.
 
"At the same time, we will be speaking to those on the frontline who dedicate their working lives to delivering vital services to many of the city"s most marginalized and vulnerable citizens to find out from them how political decisions impact their work."
 
The show is a three month pilot sponsored by Brighton-based online accountancy firmCrunch.

Crunch regularly campaign for fairer political representation of the UK's growing self-employed community.
 
Listeners can hear the The Reverb Politics Show - on Sunday 12th February 2017 – 5pm - on RadioReverb at 97.2FM, on DAB and on-line atwww.radioreverb.com.
