A brand new, weekly radio show is launching on RadioReverb at 5pm on Wednesday 25th October which will address current local issues each week and have an eclectic mix of music and chat.
Media personality Sophie Cook joins RadioReverb with an exciting new talk show called –“Sophie Cook Talks”.
The show will feature tunes from Sophie’s own record (she refuses to call them vinyl) collection spanning the entire history of popular music, from Gil Scott Heron to Portishead, from Etta James to The Libertines, alongside her unique brand of insightful comment about the local news stories that affect your lives. Sophie will also be joined by regular studio guests to educate, inspire and entertain her listeners.
Commenting about the programme, producer and presenter Sophie Cook said: During my first year at secondary school a friend brought a copy of The Who’s seminal album Quadrophenia into class and said ‘you’ve got to hear this!’ From that moment I was hooked, music, and Brighton, were now my first loves.
I’ve still got the copy of that album that I bought the following week, along with some 500 or so others that I’ve bought in the intervening decades.
Over the years I’ve been privileged to work in the music industry and have spent the past decade photographing Peter Doherty and the Libertines, and even got to shoot my heroes The Who. To be given an opportunity to play my favourite tunes alongside speaking about the issues that really matter is a dream come true.
I can’t think of a better place to do it than in this amazing city that we call home, and on the city’s most diverse radio station, the wonderful Radio Reverb!
Station Director Tracey Allen added ” We are delighted to welcome Sophie Cook to RadioReverb and we are looking forward to hearing her on the airwaves every Wednesday at 5pm talking about the issues that matter in Brighton, Hove and beyond!
Sophie is well known by all the movers and shakers in the city and brings with her a huge amount of experience, knowledge of music and even more diversity to the station.
Catch Sophie, her chat and her tunes at 5pm, every Wednesday from October 25th on DAB+ on-line and at 97.2FM. Full details of the show can be found at Sophie’s show page: http://www.radioreverb.com/shows/Sophie-Cook-Talks
