An Audience With Fiona Harrison

Fiona Harrison joins the 1940s Radio team bringing a ladies touch to the schedule.

Fiona Harrison is a soprano and costume artist with an intuitive understanding for all things 40s. Highly respected on the 1940s scene for her vocal versatility and authenticity, Fiona regularly performs songs from this era in authentic uniforms and glamorous costumes of the period. Widely acknowledged as “Britain’s finest Professional 1940s Entertainer” Fiona has gained a reputation for her outstanding showmanship and gorgeous glamour. 

Her trademarks are her superb musical arrangements and close harmony work. This she does by recording the two harmony parts onto her backing track and then singing the melody line live in performance making her act unique and unlike any other.
With 11 fabulous forties shows to choose from Fiona has become the artist of choice headlining at many events in the UK and Northern Europe.

Bunker 2 Is Now Partially Operational

Bunker 2 was switched to the live stream in the last few days of January with only a few minor teething troubles to date. Secondary support currently comes from Bunker 1 and we have the ability to instantaneously switch the stream source if a system failure occurred.
