It’s twilight time down at Manchester Opera House and the scene is set for Manchester’s latest musical. If you’re a fan of “Little Shop of Horrors” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” this’ll be right up your street, just don’t expect it to take itself too seriously!
Have a listen to Joe Kearney's news at 7.17. It's a comedic look at this week's oddest, funniest news stories from around the world. This week's stories include Japan's latest gadget- the Ice Bra and the man willing to bite off a lizard's head in an airport.
Get it while it's hot!
Fuse FM's Debbie Houghton managed to grab an interview with Ryan Keen before he played a gig at The Deaf Institute. Ryan's EP Focus is out now and the lead single has a brilliant stop-motion animation video, made by none other than the animator of Postman Pat, Andy Shackleford!
Fuse FM's Debbie Houghton headed down to The Deaf Institute to interview Jay Brannan before his headline show last month, where they talked about Jay's acting career, the awesome backstage area at Deaf and Jay taught Debbie how to remember the strings on a guitar!
Fuse FM's very own Hattie Pearson was part of a project that looked into whether students recycle enough. Her group worked with Manchester City Council and Manchester Student Homes to try and find a way of encouraging more students to recycle their rubbish.
Joe Kearney caught up with Hattie to try and find out what he can be doing to help the environment and what the council needs to be doing to stop our rubbish going to landfill.
