REVERBATHON is RadioReverb's annual fundraiser which, for one day only, helps Brighton’s long-standing community radio station stay on air. The Reverbathon will be a live 12-hour broadcast and community event which will take place on Saturday 3 March 2018, from 7 am on to 7 pm.
Broadcasting live from the RadioReverb’s studio in Brighton’s Open Market, the money raised by the event will contribute to the running of the radio station, enabling it to remain playlist and advert free.
The Reverbathon will also celebrate the social landscape of Brighton and Hove as well as showcase the top talent that dominates the station’s community lead schedule.
Each hour a different presenter will take to the airwaves with a special edition of their unique show. Other presenters, guests and musicians will be dropping in for short sessions and chats, creating a totally unique, one-off local radio experience. Presenters scheduled to appear include Emma Inch, Sophie Cook, Josie Booth, Pete Jones, Mark Johnson, Alan Wares and many more.
The RadioReverb team will be at the Open Market all day, selling merchandise and collecting donations. Listeners will also get the chance to request a song of their choice in return for a donation, made online or in person at the studio.
All the money raised during the Reverbathon goes directly back into the running of the station, upgrading equipment and giving an opportunity to bring in new shows with local voices.
RadioReverb is the sound of your city and, with its team of home-grown broadcasters, delivers an entertaining and socially conscious schedule of programs for the Brighton and Hove community.
