About 4 LEGS Radio

Since April 2018, 4Legs Radio, our first community radio station, has been broadcasting great music and interviews to the Lambourn Valley and beyond. The internet radio station broadcasts via the website 4legsradio.org.uk between 9am and 4.30pm every Friday. The schedule changes slightly from week to week. You can listen live every Friday or to listen to the shows from any week, anytime, just go to the 4 LEGS Radio website at 4legsradio.org.uk and click on ‘Listen Again.’

4LEGS Radio is kindly sponsored by Sovereign Housing.

Here is a quick demonstration by founder Chris Capel:

4LEGS Shows

Our shows cover everything including local news, sport, events, campaigns, businesses, the mysteries of the River Lambourn, gardening, astronomy, wine, wildlife, health, therapy, drones, dogs, quizzes, local clubs and voluntary groups, climate change, ghosts, recipes, racing, competitions and lots of fascinating interviews with local residents from seven to 87 years old.

There are good jokes (and a few awful ones), great music, lively chat, informed opinion, eye-catching stories sliced, diced and prepared in a variety of ways as well as a sprinkling of banter and – of course – the unexpected.

Click here to listen again to any of the shows. Here are some highlights: Lambourn’s Liz Beard, 89 year old George Bodman, MP Richard Benyon, Gill Hall from Great Shefford Youth Club, Sue Cocker from Lambourn Library.


Regular presenters include: Chris Capel from Eastbury; Penny Locke and Brian Quinn (from Penny Post) and racehorse trainer Pat Murphy from East Garston;  Tim and Linda Forrester and Pat Heslop (aka Lavinia Flynch) from Great Shefford, Pat’s monthly guest and home healer Emma Loveheart; Suzie Cairns and Tim Scott from Lambourn; Pete Brady from Shefford Woodlands.

Pete Brady 

Originally from Canada, Pete Brady has been a radio and television presenter in the United Kingdom for over 50 years. He was one of the original line-up on BBC Radio 1 and one of the original presenters of Magpie. Pete lives locally in Shefford Woodlands.

Following a similar path to DJs Tony Blackburn, Kenny Everett and Simon Dee from pirate stations such as Radio London and Radio Luxemburg, he made the natural progression to BBC Radio 1 at its launch in September 1967. Pete was given a major six-day-a-week afternoon slot Monday to Saturdays. He played a varied mix of current pop and rock music.

In July 1968, he became one of the original presenters of Thames Television’s new youth magazine programme, Magpie. During his time on TV he found difficulty maintaining his Radio 1 shows and left BBC Radio late in 1968. He continued with Magpie until 1971, when he returned to radio hosting the afternoon show on BBC Radio 2.

How to get involved

If you would like to be a guest, co-presenter or have your own show please contact Chris Capel on 4legsradio@gmail.com

The programmes are presented by local people with local guests, and are designed to serve the needs of the Lambourn Valley Community not currently served by other broadcasting media, that stimulate, educate and entertain the listeners.
