Basildon’s Leader, Mayor and Chief Executive to guest on radio show

THREE of Basildon Council’s figureheads will be revealing their musical influences on Gateway 97.8 Good Afternoon show.

Leader of the Council Tony Ball, Borough Mayor Mo Larkin and Chief Executive Bala Mahendran will each reveal their musical influences and talk to host Danny Lawrence about their careers.

Councillor Ball is the first to take the hot seat this Wednesday afternoon (18 May) with Mayor Cllr Mo Larkin appearing the following week on 25 May and Bala Mahendran on 8 June.

Show host Danny Lawrence said: “It’s a very light magazine type programme over a cuppa.

“It’s a really good opportunity for listeners to get to know the real person behind the professional and what makes them tick musically. I’m told Cllr Ball is a big Black Sabbath fan.”

The show is live every Wednesday afternoon from 1pm with the guest weekly profile segment starting at 2pm.

The show can be heard on 97.8FM and online at
