Wild Time goes Rhubarb

WILD TIME will in the future be broadcast globally from Birmingham based station Rhubarb Radio. From Wednesday, September 14th 2011 onwards the show will be broadcast globally weekly at the same time.

Wild Time host/producer Thomas Janak lives in Birmingham, which means that his travelling time and costs are dramatically reduced and that is the reason why Wild Time will change stations.

Wild Time has asked TCR FM to co-broadcast the show in the future. Should the answer to that question be YES we will announce it on this blog.

We want to thank all non online listeners for their support and hope that all our regular online listeners will join us on Rhubarb Radio.

Our new blog can be found HERE
