Two actors have set up a new online radio station called Quarantine FM, which aims to entertain people who are confined to their homes due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Kate McKeown and Anna-Rose Charleton are behind the initiative, which will broadcast on weekdays between 9am and 9pm.
After having all their work cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, McKeown and Charleton set up Quarantine FM with the aim of “making staying inside more bearable”.
The station will broadcast music, comedy, news and mindfulness, with many of the shows to be hosted by theatre performers, including Charlotte Cooper, Laura England and Thomas Cove.
McKeown and Charleton will also host an arts and culture show called the Passion Project, which will run from 7pm to 8.30pm every weekday.
They said: “We know life is tough right now, and we want to hear from you.
“Quarantine FM is for the many, and each of us is impacted in a different way. From the safety of your own home, Quarantine FM provides a platform for people from across the world to share their experiences.
“Have a talent? Story? Adorable doggo? We at QFM want to hear from you.”
