Lincoln radio station adds Polish language show

New show: A new radio programme will start this month on Lincoln City Radio, aimed at Lincoln’s Polish community.

Making the Eastern connection (L-R): Malcolm Thompson, Michael Richards and Slav finalise the programme arrangements

A community radio station in Lincoln will now be broadcasting a weekly programme dedicated to the Polish language and current affairs.

The Polskie Show will air on Lincoln City Radio (103.6 FM), from April 15 at 6pm, lasting an hour, and is presented by Marianna Wielgosz and Robert Olejarczuk.

In addition to being broadcast in Polish, it will inform the Polish community on news both in Poland and in Lincoln.

Polish businesses will also be invited to advertise their goods in their own language.

The station is working with JSP Solicitors and The Lincoln Polish Advice Bureau to deliver the show, led by Director of Programmes Malcolm Thompson.

The presenters will be attending a number of audio engineering sessions to help the team manage the broadcasting process themselves.

Michael Richards, Chairman of Lincoln City Radio, said: “The station is indebted to both Malcolm Thompson and JSP Solicitors for their determination in bringing this project to fruition – it sends out a very clear message to all people in the Lincoln area that they are all a part of our wider community.”

Lincoln City Radio has been broadcasting since May 2010, and caters mainly to the over 50s in the Lincoln area.

The station is staffed purely by volunteers, and supports other local voluntary and community groups by letting them talk on air about their work.

For more information about the programme or talking to the station about a community group or event, call Michael Richards on 01522 845101.
