A new show for Masons by Masons

Northumberland Masons Go On Air

"The Radio Show will be for Masons, by Masons but it is hoped that the general public will listen in and enjoy the content."
Stuart Cairns

Northumberland Freemasons now have their own radio show. The monthly show called Sound Level is being hosted by volunteers at community radio station Radio Northumberland as part of their commitment to connecting as many diverse groups across the county as possible during lockdown. 

Presented by Tom Stewart from Widdrington Station and produced by Keith Newman from Ulgham, the show looks at the personal stories of `Northumberland Freemasons, gives practical information and highlights their charitable work throughout Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside. 

The 90-minute February show is broadcast at various times every week on the station and features an interview with the former guitarist of Hebburn based 80’s band, The News, looks at the history of the 100-year-old Cramlington Lodge, examines the impact of COVID on farming and reports on some of the good causes that have been the recipients of almost £200,000 donations in 2020. Already the March show is in preparation with interviews being lined up from interested freemasons. 

Stuart Cairns the Provincial Secretary of Northumberland Freemasons said: “The Radio Show will be for Masons, by Masons but it is hoped that the general public will listen in and enjoy the content. The format will be a mixture of interviews, topics of interest and music. It will provide an opportunity for Freemasons in Northumberland to share with others, their hobbies and discuss those topics and other issues of interest.”

Presenter Tom Stewart added: “COVID has isolated a lot of people including freemasons, many who are old and vulnerable. We are hoping that this new show will reconnect them with familiar people with a shared interest through the internet wavebands.”

The Radio Northumberland show for Northumberland Freemasons - Sound Level, will air each week at the following times from this Monday 1st Feb, Monday 1pm, Tuesday 4pm, Thursday 6pm, Saturday 5pm
