Have you heard our radio show on Frome FM?
'Somerset cool live' is a mix of Somerset chat, top tunes, great studio guests and a few other surprises along the way... and Jenna's won a National Community Radio Award for creating & presenting it.
Lots of different people from our Somerset communities have been involved so far and there's so much more to come too, so tune in, tweet us in the studio @somersetcool or @fromefm and be part of it with us.
The next show is on November 10th from 12-1pm and we'd love to know you're listening.
Never fear though... if you miss the show live, you can catch up right here, whenever you like, on our Mixcloud channel... or save all the programmes up for a rainy day!
