After the successful launch of his book HIV Happy, local writer Paul Thorn now has a weekly radio chat show.

It’s called the HIV Happy Hour and will be broadcast on Radio Reverb for the first time on Thursday October 1 at 7pm, and then at the same time each week afterwards.

Radio Reverb received a grant from The Rainbow Fund to broadcast the HIV Happy Hour for a whole year. It is believed to be the first show of its kind in the UK, and probably the world dedicated to listeners who are HIV-positive.

Paul said; “I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity to make a weekly show for people who are HIV-positive. I hope that the show will offer a new platform providing information to those living with the virus locally and people with HIV also get involved.  It really is very exciting and will be a lot of fun to make the show.”

You can tune into the show on Radio Reverb 97.2fm, on digital radio, streaming worldwide via Radio Reverb’s website and podcasting via iTunes and Podomatic.
