They're back! Hunt & Darton, the decade-long Live Art collaboration between Jenny Hunt and Holly Darton, will be returning to Merseyside this spring with their new project, Radio Local - a brand new hyper-local radio station, built with, by and for local people, telling your stories, sharing your news, playing your jingles and stay live for the duration of a day in its new home.
