The Hoot!rss

Hosted by Eleanor. Tune in Mondays, 7 – 8pm.

The Hoot! posits that stories, discussion and music by ordinary, un-famous and unknown people can often be the most extraordinary.

The Hoot!, like a hootenanny, involves people of all talents and backgrounds. It’s inclusive, it’s supportive and it’s encouraging of people to do something they’ve always been afraid to do outside the world of their own home.

The Hoot! also explores the limitless possibilities of radio as a means to transform and connect.

Be active, be creative, and give a hoot!
