20th birthday header

We are 20 years old!

Aston Merrygold joined THOUSANDS in celebrating 20 successful years broadcasting to Wearside, at our free birthday bash in Keel Square, right in the heart of Sunderland on 7th May.

It’s not every year you turn 20, so we’ve decided to throw a party to remember.  We will be hosting the biggest and best 20th birthday celebration Wearside has ever seen! 

There was a special live edition of our sports podcast ‘Into the Light’ with our very own former Sunderland striker Michael Proctor and the guys, joined by another Black Cat hero Kevin Ball, Olympic medallists Paula Radcliffe and the ‘Jarrow Arrow’ Steve Cram, where they talked all things SAFC and looked ahead to the final home game of the season for the Black Cats.


We had live entertainment, including music from local bands and musicians from across Wearside. We also had Aston Merrygold performing as our headline act!
