Saturday May 1

Live from Magdalen College
The big May Day celebrations were taking place in the city today and the show came to you from Magdalen College to catch all the action.
Joining us were Daniel Hyde, Michael Duffy and Edmund Smith from the Magdalen choir to tell us all about how they prepared for their early start.
Superintendant Amanda Pearson was also on hand to give listeners a rundown on how many people broke through the barriers to make the jump off Magdalen Bridge.

Discovering Places
Debbie Dance from the Oxford Heritage Trust explained how a new initiative, Discovering Places, aims to get people to visit some of Oxford's less known green spaces.
A series of walks are taking place this weekend to celebrate Oxford's best kept secrets including around Old Headington and Boars Hill.
For more information about the walks visit:

Pole Dancing
Dance tutor Kate Whitely and pupil Nicola Stokes told listeners all about dancing around a different pole.
Kate has set-up a pole dancing class which is used as a way of keeping fit. The pair explained how people can attend a six-week course to learn all the moves to manouvere around a pole.
They will be hosting a show at the Regal tonight in aid of charity Pathways workshop.
If you are interested in attending you can turn up at The Regal tonight where tickets are on sale on the door or for more information visit

History of May Morning
Mark Blanford Baker Head Bursar of Magdalen College gave an insight into the history behind May Day and its celebrations.

Paper Review
Today's guest reviewer was Ann Spokes Simmons who gave a rundown of what is making the news in this weekend's papers.
Hitting the headlines (still) is Gordon Brown's microphone gaffe, the oil spillage in the Gulf of Mexico and the volcanic ash which is still lingering.
