Gaby Roslin to host Day Of Reflection show on Durham OnAir

Durham OnAir will be broadcasting a special show to mark Marie Curies Day Of Reflection, hosted by Gaby Roslin. The programme will be broadcast on the Day Of Reflection, Sunday 3rd March, at 6pm.

The anniversary of the first UK lockdown, March 23, marked the inaugural Day of Reflection in 2021 but this year it moves to the new date of March 3, in line with the UK Commission on Covid Commemoration’s recommendation that the day be held on the first Sunday in March each year.

The programme ‘Sound Not Silence’ will focus on the importance of music in supporting people with their grief and feature a range of voices and stories relating to songs and music as a source of comfort and connection.

Broadcaster and Marie Curie ambassador Gaby Roslin says: “I’m delighted to be hosting this important moment for the nation. I’ve been a broadcaster for many years now and understand how important radio is to people. We provide companionship to people through good times and bad.

“And while the pandemic was the worst of times, the radio world was there for people, in their homes, bringing relief from all the stresses that surrounded us. On Marie Curie’s Day of Reflection, radio will be there to help heal and build some positivity and hope for the future. I feel overwhelmingly lucky to be working on this and with the radio stations that sit at the heart of so many homes and local communities.”

The end of life charity, Marie Curie, supports people with an illness they are likely to die from and the people close to them. Its bereavement support was scaled up during the pandemic in response to the number of people who were grieving.

The programme is hosted by Gaby Roslin and produced by Radio News Hub, in association with Marie Curie.
