Tune in this evening at 4pm for the final omnibus of Buddyline. BuddyLine is a series of intergenerational telephone conversations between people from the Sonder Radio Community of over 60s and the Reform Radio Community of under 28s.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the shows. Any comments please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We matched four pairs of strangers from different generations and got them chatting via regular phone calls that we’ve recorded.
Over the following hour, you’ll hear how our fourth and final pair, Michael and Tony got on, and how their conversations developed over a series of calls. They’ve talked about many things – from reggae music, their life ambi ons, and the value in talking to new people.
Taking advantage of the technology available to us, the conversations will be recorded from each of their homes during isolation. Through these honest conversations, our listeners enter into an intimate and genuine meeting between two people who would not otherwise interact in everyday society.
We have matched people with stories that will enlighten both the listeners and each other, and demonstrate that isolation does not have to be isolating, and can instead create long-lasting friendships.
Each week we will follow a different pair over the course of 5 conversations, and listen in to how their relationship develops. BuddyLine has been produced in partnership between Reform Radio and Sonder Radio and funded by Audio Content Fund.
Listen in each weekday at 7pm or tune in to the omnibus at 4pm on Saturday on North Manchester FM.
