Review of the year

So, what happens when the BCfm advert music goes ON and ON and ON?? Yes!
This week, Out Shout features lesbians playing with balls! Yes, really! Well, pool balls to be precise as George phoned in to tell us all about the gatherings that have been taking place on Fridays at the Pineapple. With lesbians from all over and of all abilities and ages they're asking for you to join them for the next two friday evenings before the Pineapple closes for a refurb. Rumours are that it might be closing for good but ShoutOut hasn't been able to verify those claims yet. We'll keep you posted.
Then, how about a look back and some of the LGBT news worthy events that have taken place throughout the year? Terry was joined by Finn Mackay and Peter Main as we chatted about everything from marriage equality to Eurovision.
And, it's quite a hot topic at the moment as Ivan grabbed his recorder when he and his partner Steve went along on day one (yesterday) of the change in the law to allow the conversion of civil partnerships to marriage.

Well travelled Bear

This week on the show it's all bells and bears.. Yes, it's Hibearnation in Bristol this weekend so two, well travelled bears, Alex and Kike, joined us in the studio. Travelling from Mexico to Spain to the USA to here.. talk about a global view of bears! Plus, in a first for ShoutOut, Kike is deaf so we spoke to him about the deaf community in Bristol and - to our surprise - find out how it's rapidly shrinking.
So bells... Yes, it was the second part of Matthew's report on the Friends of Dorothy bell ringers...
Don't forget, nominations for the ShoutOut Listeners' Awards 2014 are still open.. Get your nominations in now. Most categories are doing well, but as Andy pointed out on the show, some could do with your help if they are going to make it through to round 2.

Ssshhh! Top Secret!

Well, if you ever wanted to know just how much we can pack into a show, this week really has to be that example as we turn over almost the complete show to spying!
"The Imitation Game" has recently started screening in cinemas across the UK. So with that in mind, we decided to re-run our special from 2012 on Alan Turing. Out Shout, our new feature giving you the best events for the week, talked about the film as most of the team have been to so it (and very well worth seeing if you haven't done so already). Then, to top it all off, Ivan managed to speak to a gay employee at GCHQ to find out what it's like being gay in the intelligence services today.....(Don't worry, they let Ivan back out)!

Outstories - Local LGBT History

Firstly, please excuse our show this week. Having lost studio 1 due to a major technical fault, the team had to broadcast from studio 2 which isn't as familiar territory to them.
This week we mark Transgender Day Of Remembrance with a report from Cheryl who attended the events of the day as Bristol has it's first flag raising in its honour.
Andy and Chris from Out Stories joined the team live in the studio to talk about what they have been up to, including their latest project to add an LGBT layer to Bristol City Council's history mapping website. See the links for more details.
And talk about camp! Well, campanology that is... Matthew revealed his other hobby as he introduced the team to bell ringing..
Finally - The ShoutOut Listeners' Awards are now open for your nominations.. Get them in now shoutoutradio.org.uk/awards

Cycle Out

This week it was Mitch's turn to muck up the beginning of the show. Oh well people, we do try we promise!
Still, it was a packed show with James from the Palace joining Steff for this week's Out Shout, then Kevin from Cycle Out joined the team live in the studio to talk about their events.
Then, ShoutOut became BakeOut as Glenn Cosby from last year's Great British Bake Off turned up with cake!!
