    The TowersStreet Quiz Committee are back! The government hasn't given us quite long enough to create another full-blown quiz night extravaganza, so we've decided to bring back TowersStreet Radio.

    We'll be live from 8pm, although quite how, we've yet to finalise. Watch this space for more details through the week! But for now, there's a few things you can do to help us out...

    Got a request?
    We’ll be playing a mixture of theme park soundtracks and slightly more mainstream songs too, so let us know by using the form below.

    Quiz
    Of course, we can’t do a radio show without having an interactive quiz! If you’d like to take part in our 2-player live audio-based theme park quiz, please fill out the relevant section in the form. Please note that to take part you’ll need to be available to speak to us live on the night, and be available to do so between 8.15pm and 9.30pm.

    Q&A
    Throughout the night, we’ll be taking your questions and discussing them live. Only one of the hosts knows what the questions are beforehand, so the sillier the better! Feel free to submit up to 3 questions in, yes you guessed it, the form below!

    Chat
    As per quizzes 1-4, the our Discord channels will be available for you to chat away while the evening goes on. We’re not saying that the quizzes were scripted in the slightest, but we should have more time to interact with you on the night this time around! You can join our Discord server today if you haven’t already.

    You can find the link to the forms here, but please make sure you submit them by 8pm on Friday 13th November, so that we've got time to organise ourselves!

    We're really looking forward to it and hope to see you there.

    Some more information for Saturday...

    To listen to the show, you'll need to join our discord server and hop into the "radio" voice channel which will appear on the night. This is exactly the same setup that we used for the quizzes. Only the hosts will be able to speak so there's no need to worry about having to join in, the whole idea is that you can sit back and not need to do anything for the night!

    Please make sure you submit your song requests in advance, by 8pm this Friday, as it would be a massive help for us.

    :D

    May I ask when are we likely to hear if we've been successful for the quiz bit?

    The forms close at 8pm on Friday so we'll give everyone a chance to put themselves forward, then I'll contact everyone about it on Friday evening or Saturday. :)

    If we can't listen in on the night, will a recording be available?

    We'll aim to record, but have sometimes had trouble with this in the past. If all goes successfully I'll let you know how you can listen. :)

    Thank you to all who have submitted songs, we are currently in the process of forming our setlist for the evening and Tom shall be in touch in due course regarding any quiz sections.

    On a side note, it's safe to say this evenings collaborations between myself, @Rowe & @Burbs became suitably silly in record time, fingers crossed we will manage to put on some semblance of a good show. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night!

    Very very excited for tonight! We'll have a selection of theme park soundtracks playing from 7.30pm in the "radio" voice channel on our Discord server to whet your appetite.

    If you've not already done so, you can sign up to the server here. You'll need to do this to be able to listen in.

    See you there!

    Thanks for a good night, shame you didn't get round to my requests (unless I missed them)

    Sorry about that Thameslink, we only had a limited number of spots without going on all night, and with there only being 2 tracks in total you suggested it was tough to fit them in.

    Hope you enjoyed it all the same though! And on that note, thanks to everyone that turned up tonight, it was great to see so many people! I can only apologise for the microphone issues but it just wouldn't be the same without a major technical problem. :p
