After three years on air and 168 aired shows it was about time for Wild Time's very first live event, which took place on Saturday June 25th 2011 at the youth centre in Tamworth where TCR FM broadcasts from.
"A critical look at animal testing" was the topic and animal rights campaigner Jon White spoke about ethical and scientific reasons for not testing on animals.
During the event a 26-minutes DVD about alternative methods of testing was screened courtesy of the Safer Medicines Trust who were on WILD TIME not too long ago.
Although the bad weather and the halfterm meant fewer bums on seats as expected, the audience was attentive and the event lively.
More live events will hopefully follow soon.
TCR FM station manager Daniel Hoult and his mother Margaret were in the audience
