The Talking Magazine

The Talking Magazine is monthly and so can be produced at a more leisurely pace.

The Magazine has three regular producer / presenters who are responsible for planning, with the volunteer reporters, what items will be included in the next edition. It could be an interview, a report on an exhibition, an event or new facility within the area. In fact it could be just about anything you could name!  Our reporters have a very wide variety of interests so you can be sure that there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

When they know the topic they are to report on they then plan, record and edit the item. Finally details of the duration and any introductory link are e-mailed to the presenter so that a balanced and entertaining programme can be planned.
In addition to these reports we have contributors who, every month,  present their "Regular" feature......a 'Postbag’ of listeners letters, 'Birthday Greetings', a ‘Noticeboard’ of future events and to bring the programme to a conclusion the popular religious thought for the month, ‘Quiet Corner’.
The Magazine is produced in the same way as a live radio programme so that it has a relaxed and spontaneous feel.

We have a complete archive of every edition of the Talking Magazine since the first edition of December 1971.  Hundreds of hours of recordings of events and people who have faced the microphones in our studio or those of our roving reporters.

The next page explains how the Magazine is duplicated for distribution to our listeners.
