Spoof radio station 'Radio Hiemoothe' will have its first broadcast on stage in Eyemouth Parish Church on Friday, February 26 and the star of the schedule will be a transmission of 'Desperate Fishwives', set in Hysteria Wynd, Eyemouth.

The plot was the brainchild of Eyemouth playwright David Wilson and lending their voices to the roles will be a host of familiar local faces.

The 'launch' of Radio Hiemoothe is part of a concert to raise funds for the Royal Mission for Deep Sea Fishermen and other highlights of the broadcast include a local news and weather forecast, 'Limericks Unlimited', 'Songs of Praise' and a 'Story for Bedtime'.
