Re: Epic FM, Norfolk, 88.4

Yes, it should be - it's been on every time I've checked (latest was around 11 this morning) since I first heard it.

Epic FM, Norfolk, 88.4

I've been meaning to post about this for a while - I first heard it a couple of months ago and I first received the RDS name of 'EPICFMUK' in April. It plays dance music and the signal isn't great in Norwich itself but gets better further out.

Re: The Sports Thread

Norwich relegated after 1 season in the premier league, it's like 2005 again! People have been saying "Ipswich Town we're coming for you"!

I'm not really a footy fan but I hope Leicester become champions at Old Trafford today.

Things not so good for my local team...

Re: Storm Katie

Lol at the profanity filter in the second line of your post!

Still very windy and wet here - just looked at the Met Office app and it seems Norwich is currently the windiest place in the country with a wind speed of 31mph.

Re: Petrol and Diesel Prices

I had half-decent signals from the Egem regulars in the car just before 17.00. This has happened on a few days over the last couple of weeks.
