Big Friday Show Big Birthday Show Jay James Hal Stewart Laura Skitt Forces Radio BFBS

The critics said it would never last. There were some moments that made the lawyers nervous. However, somehow Jay James and Hal Stewart have managed to stay on air for one whole year.

Today is the BIG day, the Forces Radio BFBS #BigFridayShow is one year old, that's twelve months also known as 52 weeks.

There will be the usual bants and games like General Knowledge and Hitterati but today will be a little different.

Jay, Hal and #InternetExplorerLaura will be joined in the studio by actual listeners who we hope won't be bitterly disappointed by the machine tea and how small the studio is.

Multi-award winning broadcaster, Guinness World Record holder and owner of four cashmere cardigans, Hal Stewart was overcome with emotion as he was asked to describe his feelings ahead of this momentous day.

"It's been one year but it feels like much longer."

Former Royal Navy Physical Training Instructor, musician and broadcaster Jay James echoed his co-host's thoughts adding:


Some long term listeners can't hide their excitement which is boosting Hal's ego far too much. He's currently having a lie down.

Other listeners have some GCSEs to sit before heading to Forces Radio BFBS, no big deal*.

People are even making plans to celebrate with us from home. They'll probably be listening online or via the free app, which you can download if you want. If you have an Apple phone go here > or if you have an Android visit here >

*It is, we're behind her 100%.
