Tony Dowling, Station Director at Real Radio said; “This is a wonderful event for us to be associated with. The Eisteddfod is not only the ultimate expression of Welsh tradition but a brilliant occasion. It’s great to be at Ebbw Vale for the first time in over half a century and we think that Real Radio, the biggest commercial radio station in Wales, is the perfect official commercial radio partner.”
