Glastonbury FM’s Thursday Live takes a new direction through the darker months by having an after show party once a month. The aim is to bring you some of the best local bands from the area who will perform a session on the show then appear in the fantastic Red Brick/Bocabar venue in the same building for free….Exciting Eh!!!
Who are a garage indie rock band from Yeovil who believe in keeping it raw instead of messing around with tonnes of effects and sample tracks. They are a fantastic three piece live act from Yeovil and besides some great tracks they fill the stage with their energy and leave the crowd with a buzz.
Who are a young 16 year old indie band from Shepton who have been making a name for themselves over the past year with some great festival appearances and a growing following. See these before they get too big to play in the area.

GFM will shortly be moving into the new studio to that effect we have had a new telephone line installed with a new telephone number. The number is 01458 899811. At the moment there is no answer phone service to this line, so if we are not in the studio please ring again later.
“From the Outside In” brilliantly captures the partying, carnival and artisan experience that Glastonbury is famous for, alongside a rarely seen visual journey of what it takes to make Glastonbury happen. From the police operation to the waste management, transportation and media broadcast set-up, Glastonbury based photographer Laura Zaky’s debut book is truly unique in showing the wider story of this iconic event. Michael Eavis the festival founder has written a foreword and 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Glastonbury Abbey Ruins Fund and Glastonbury’s community radio GFM.
Speaking about her book Laura said, “I’ve been photographing the festival and it’s impact on the wider community since 2008 and amassed over 6000 photo’s in that time. I could see from the visitors to my flickr site that their is a huge appetite for Glastonbury photos and decided to collate the best of those into a special collection that shows the wider Glastonbury story”
