Charity radio station, Radio Cracker, is organised and run by volunteers. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to ensure it is ready for broadcasting each year.  They work hard to keep the programme fresh and provide shows and music to suit all tastes. This year several of the lunchtime shows will be presented by media students from several Ballymena schools. Many of the ‘regulars’ and a few new presenters will also be on-air for the annual four week broadcast. Check out the programme here for this year’s schedule.
