Geoff Lloyd is back on commercial radio next month with a series of six weekend programmes on DAB service Union JACK.
“Hometown Glory” will launch at 11:00 on Saturday 3 March 2018 and feature a host of famous faces every fortnight, then be available as a podcast.
The initial run sees Lloyd welcome six comedians for a trip down memory lane, as they take a virtual ‘Google Maps’ tour of their hometown, recalling tales of their childhood.
Comedians Simon Evans, Shazia Mirza, Tom Allen, Matt Forde, Nick Helm and Richard Herring all feature in the opening season.
Speaking of his new show, Lloyd said: “I’m having a great time! It’s basically time-traveling with comedians, without the inconvenience of having to invent a time machine. The Union JACK team are the best people in commercial radio, they’re always up for trying something new, and, most importantly, they’ve said I can help myself to whatever I want from their stationery cupboard.”
CEO Ian Walker commented: “Union JACK has unashamedly changed the way that British radio approaches its content, celebrating the very best that Britain has to offer and letting our audience decide what they want to listen to. Geoff Lloyd embodies all that our station stands for, with an incredible career that has kept the nation entertained for years, and a sense of humour that our listeners will love. Hometown Glory is innovative and entertaining, and like nothing else that is already out there – which is what we do best.”
