Matty from Radio Loco's Thursday show 'The Lions Den' takes a trip out to interview Gary and Lisa from the Real Radio Breakfast Show. Every Thursday Matty does an interview with a different inspirational guest for their show's feature: 'The Couch'. 'The Couch' has quickly become an important part of Radio Loco's schedule, as this is the main interview feature in the weekly programme. Previous interviews include: BBC Look North presenters, the Headteacher, Jason Isaacs (winner of 'The Nation's Favourite Crooner') and presenters from Capital Radio North East.
In this interview Matty asks Gary and Lisa why and how they got into radio and Matty produces some surprise gifts that have been wrapped by his mum!

Police Officers support school radio
Officers have taken to the airwaves to support a new school radio station in Killingworth.
Radio Loco started broadcasting last week at George Stephenson High School and neighbourhood officers went along to the launch and to be interviewed by the students.
Sergeant Martin Brooks, of Killingworth Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "This new radio station is a good opportunity for those involved to develop great skills for the future. It allows students to have a voice in school which will literally be broadcast to all.
"Neighbourhood officers are regular visitors to the school and have developed a strong relationship with students and staff. It's good to hear young people getting involved in a new challenge over the airwaves."
Radio Loco is the school's own in-house radio station broadcasting on weekdays across the school and online on the school website. It features news, music and interviews carried out by young broadcasters. Guests from the community, including officers, were invited to the launch to get involved.
The shows and management of the radio station is run entirely by the students as a business enterprise project.
