Back to News

On Saturday 29th June 2019, dynamic and deadpan artist duo Hunt & Darton broadcast their new hyper-local radio show -#RadioLocal – LIVE from Church Square and WA12 Radio for 12 hours! They were joined by a whole host of St Helens local legends over the day and we enjoyed DJ slots from BuzzHub’s Media Group and guest artists. See our local legend and guest artist hall of fame here and a behind the scenes gallery of BuzzHub’s takeover prep here. Thanks for tuning in!
