Re-live the experience by listening to our top 12 best Foo Fighters tracks of all time (as voted by FromeFM presenters).
In a special feature-length interview, Bill talks at length about his time in these legendary bands and his new project The Ancient Order of Froth Blowers Band, whose new double B-side single was released earlier this month. We also play some of the music Bill has been involved with.
Show airs Saturday 28th January at 21:00.
Although behind the scenes it will be all hands on deck, there will be no disruption for listeners either tuning in online or listening on 96.6 FM.
Studio one, will be set up in an old police cell, which requires minimal work to convert into a fully soundproofed area, making an unusual and novel studio setting. Hopefully it will be the first time that FromeFM guests and presenters will have stepped foot in a police cell!

On Saturday 12th November the Frome Firewalking Fundraiser took place at Frome College to raise money for local charity, SOS Africa.
FromeFM presenters Jennie and Jonny entertained the crowd who turned out despite the rain and young presenter “Sparky Steph” braved the hot coals to contribute towards the £7,000 (and counting) total raised so far!
There’s still time to donate though and the JustGiving page will be open until November 28th or cash donations can be taken into the SOS Africa charity Shop on Cheap Street, Frome.
Because of all your hard work and with the support of our charity’s new corporate sponsor, I am delighted to say that in January 2017 we will officially open a new education centre in the Western Cape supporting a number of underprivileged children from the region. It will be our great pleasure to show you photos of the centre when it opens in the New Year! – Matt, Claudia and all at SOS Africa
Congratulations to everyone that took part.
