Saturday June 5

Early birds
The glorious weather has really made Oxfordshire look stunning - especially in the morning.
And the birds have been getting very excited, singing their hearts out at dawn every morning.
Colin Williams, Reserves Ecology Officer for BBOWT, joined us to explain which songs belong to which bird.

Greece lightening
Do you fancy learning Greek in the park?
After last year's successful Latin in the Park project in South Park, the Iris Project has organised a similar initiative this year - learning Greek.
Dr Lorna Robinson, Director of the charity, joined us to tell listeners all about how they can pop down to South Park or Bury Knowle Park to learn their alphas and omegas in the sun!
It starts at 2pm and for more information visit:

Voices of Oxford
Mozart's Requiem is being performed in Oxford's Town Hall this evening, and rehearsals start in just a few hours time!
It's hoped that as many as seven hundred singers will attend the event, which is in aid of MacMillan Cancer support.
Sheridan Edward joined us to explain how he set-up the charity following the death of his mother Gloria from cancer.

Rehearsals begin from 2pm with the final performance starting at 8pm at the Town Hall.

Flowers at the Castle
If you didn't manage to get down to see the Chelsea Flower Show this year -- you might like to take a look around Oxford Castle this weekend.
The 900 year old site is going to display all kinds of flowers, plants and fascinating gardening gadgets.
Jean Pierre Morilleau, General Manager of the Oxford Castle, explained all about the festival.

Fire Award
Yesterday the men and women from Hook Norton Fire Station went to Wembley - their station was up for a prestigious national award.
They were nominated for station of the year at the Spirit of Fire Awards.
Stuart Garner told listeners how the station made it a double success for Oxford at Wembley following United's promotion.
