In the late 70s, through to the 80s, 2NUR FM hosted a program called ‘The Word This Week’. The show focused on poetry, prose and literary figures. Its topics varied from Shakespeare, to children, to cricket. Over 70 recordings of this show, and one or two other UON focused programs, were found within the UON recording archives. For the first time ever, we have edited and compiled these recordings into 47 tracks which can be found on the Cultural Collections’s SoundCloud.
