“On the Beat” Programmes on BBC Radio Merseyside.
The programmes are broadcast on 95.8FM, from 6pm to 8.00pm most Saturday evenings. Football comes first – the show will be cancelled if there is a late kickoff for Liverpool or Everton. Similarly, it may also start early. Sorry for the confusion but it’s not down to me!
