Bangor FM Takeover

This summer, Open House Festival is taking over the airwaves at Bangor FM for a series of specially curated radio shows. Tune in each week to hear local music enthusiasts with a connection to the Festival play some of their favourite records past and present, and chat about what makes them special.

The shows will air on Friday evenings from 6–8pm. Listen on the Bangor FM website or 107.9FM.
