BFBS links up with Smooth for Easter

Forces broadcaster BFBS is to simulcast a 2-hour show with Smooth Radio this weekend to allow family and friends of serving troops to connect with their loved ones.

BFBS presenter Rachel Cochrane and Smooth breakfast’s Simon Bates will co-host the special ‘Access all Areas’ slot 12-2pm on Easter Sunday.

Rachel will be at the BFBS studios in Camp Bastion, with Simon in GMG Radio’s London studios.

Simon Bates said: “BFBS hosted us when my producer, Seb Sears, and I broadcast for a week from Afghanistan in December, and were terrific hosts technically and professionally. They couldn’t have been more helpful,
particularly under the stressful day-to-day conditions in which they work. So, we’re doubly delighted to be joining them for this simulcast on Easter Sunday.”

People can get messages on the show for family, friends and loved ones who are serving in the British forces by visiting the Smooth Radio or BFBS websites.
