What is BuddyLine?
BuddyLine is a series of intergenerational telephone conversations between people from the Sonder Radio Community of over 60s and the Reform Radio Community of under 28s. Taking advantage of the technology available to us, the conversations will be recorded from each of their homes during isolation.
Through these honest conversations, our listeners enter into an intimate and genuine meeting between two people who would not otherwise interact in everyday society.
We will match people with stories that will enlighten both the listeners and each other, and demonstrate that isolation does not have to be isolating, and can create long-lasting friendships.
This is a partnership between Reform Radio and Sonder Radio, funded by European Social Fund and continued support from the Manchester Adult Education Service.
