Sheffield Live! and Resonance FM to collaborate on Plinth Broadcast

Sheffield Live! 93.2FM will be joined by London’s art radio station, Resonance 104.4FM on Tuesday, 21st July for a special community radio broadcast from the fourth plinth on Trafalgar Square.

Presented by Sheffield Live’s Alan Fransman between 8 and 9pm, the broadcast will create a memorable connection between audiences in London and Sheffield.  Fransman and the broadcast will become part of “One & Other”, sculptor Antony Gormley’s project to create an astonishing living monument.  The Sheffield Live! broadcast will be heard not only by people on Trafalgar Square, but across Sheffield on 93.2FM, across London on Resonance 104.4FM and on the Internet. The broadcast will be featured in Resonance FM’s “Clear Spot”, a slot for unique broadcasts by artists.

Alan Fransman said: “I am a big fan of Resonance FM and proud to be part of a collaborative work that involves two fantastic radio stations.”

Sangita Basudev, Chief Executive of Sheffield Live! 93.2FM said: “Community Radio is all about bringing communities together. With Alan’s broadcast from the Fourth Plinth, we will be bringing Sheffield to the heart of the capital and putting the streets of London on to the Sheffield airwaves.”

Ed Baxter, Director of Resonance 104.4FM said: “Alan’s use of radio ingeniously propels Anthony Gormley’s participatory artwork into the centre of community arts. The Fourth Plinth is a fitting site for this outside broadcast – a monument to the success that is Community Radio!
