Get Fit

This week the team were...errrmm.. getting fit! Well, ok, they weren't but the lovely Sharon joined us to talk all about fitness. Now it was our intention that that would be what the show was about, but when Andy found out exactly how and why Sharon got into fitness, it was a story that had to be told. We hope you think so too.
And, as LGBT History Month nears the end, Cheryl was lucky enough to catch up with the very person who started the whole idea - Sue Sanders.

History Month

So,after a HUGE awards show last week, this week things got back to normal as we carry on looking into LGBT history month. This week the team re-broadcast an interview Mary did about 4 years ago with 75 year old Michael. Sadly he passed away last year, but his coming out story was such a great piece of history to collect we thought we'd re-air it again in his honour.
But it's not just the past that we've been looking at. In fact Matthew went off to talk to Chew Valley School about their new equalities team - the E -Team!
Plus, Ivan caught up with Morgan James who has been performing recently in Bristol with Post Modern Jukebox. Not heard of them? Check out the links section for their YouTube channel. They are very good indeed!
And so finally - the team had to say farewell to Emma. She's been part of ShoutOut for over two years now, but is moving away from the area. We wish her all the best and trust us, you'll hear her on air again with us for some of larger broadcasts coming later this year.
