Worthy FM web revamp to offer 'Listen Again'

GlastoEarth Exclusive
2nd March 2011

Festival radio station Worthy FM are set to launch a new website featuring clips from previous shows, as well as the broadcast schedule and information for budding volunteers.

The site - which GlastoEarth has had exclusive preview of - contains over 25 interviews and chats from the 2010 festival, featuring everyone from Tony Benn, to the dawn arrivals out at the gates.

Billy Bragg talks about bringing a "Red Edge" to Glastonbury, taking on the BNP and the Tories. At the quirkier end of the scale, there's five minutes of toilet talk, with exit interviews with punters as well as the staff who do the sludge gulping. Thankfully, smell-radio is not yet with us.

In other clips, Worthy FM presenters chat to artists including the Scissor Sisters, Beardyman and Tinchy Strider - and Michael Eavis reflects on 40 years of the festival.

Listening to it quickly brings back fond memories, and only leaves us wanting more. They're promising to add more material as the weeks go by. If they do, we'll certainly be popping back regularly to catch up on more of the Worthy FM's wanderings around our favourite farm.

And if all this radio lark sounds appealing, there's a page specially for you - detailing a competition to choose four new volunteers for this year's festival.

A definite launch date for the site hasn't been set, but it may go live in a matter of days if festival management give it the nod. The radio station is expected to tweet the announcement of their website launch - follow worthyfm for more news.
