Today sees the launch of a new social media and radio mashup, #FridaySocial, presented by our very own MD, Claire Burdett on local radio station, Radio Kennet.
Each week she’ll be choosing one trending topic from social media and chatting to some guests about how that a specific item or trend online translates into real life or has affected or influenced them.
the first show, on Sept 5th is looking at the #IceBucketChallenge, and talking to Nigel Morgan of Morgan PR and Dave Whittingham of Media Fusion and organiser of the Newbury Real Ale Festival about why they did the challenge and what they think of the issues surrounding it.
If you want to participate, you can join in via the social media chat #FridaySocial as we’ll be posting the questions on our Twitter and Facebook pages and sharing you thoughts on air. Just look for #FridaySocial and if you can answer the questions starting with A and the number of the question you are answering, plus add the #FridaySocial hashtag that’ll ensure we will see what you are saying and make it all easier to follow and share!
So for example, we might start with – Q1: Why did you do the IceBucketChallenge? And you might answer: A1: My father suffered MND #FridaySocial
Music-wise it’ll be Balearic House, chilled beats, and classic vocals to ease you into the weekend. So join us for an ‘Easing you in to the weekend with a glass of champagne while watching your favourite sunset’ kind of vibe and a darn good gossip about all things social.
