Hometown Glory returns for second series

A radio series which sees guests taken down memory lane is returning with five new episodes.

Hometown Glory is hosted by broadcaster and podcaster Geoff Lloyd on national digital radio station Union JACK. The series debuted in March with six comedians, including Tom Allen, Matt Forde and Richard Herring. Episodes from the first series are still available on the Union JACK website.

The first new episode will be broadcast on Union JACK today at 11am and all episodes will be available as a podcast.

Comedians Phil Jupitus, Mark Steel and Andy Hamilton will discuss “pivotal moments from their past with hilarious consequences”. Musician and former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and Anne Hegerty from ITV’s The Chase will also take a trip down memory lane.

Ian Walker, CEO of Union JACK, said of the new series: “Geoff Lloyd’s Hometown Glory was a big hit with our listeners, so we’re excited to see a second series with another provocative talent line up. If you like a laugh, then this is definitely going to be one for you.”

Geoff Lloyd hosted and co-hosted shows on Virgin Radio and Absolute Radio for 18 years. He recently launched the podcast Reasons to be Cheerful with Labour MP Ed Miliband.

Digital station Union JACK launched just over a year ago and plays only British music and comedy. Listeners can vote for songs on the station’s website to influence the playlist. The station is available on DAB+, online and in the Union JACK app.
