Ruth O’Keeffe MBE has been co-presenting the Breakfast Show on Rocket FM with Dino Bishop for nearly a decade. Since becoming a Lewes Town Councillor almost by surprise in 1999, she has really become enthusiastic about the strange world of local politics as viewed by someone who resolutely has no political party, and has met thousands of people as a result. Each year, Ruth gets as many local people in to be interviewed as can cope with the early morning world of Breakfast Radio.
“Up with Dino and Ruth” has themed days each year, from Planning to Parking to Renewable Energy to Civic Life to Youth to whatever seems to be interesting people at the time, with plenty of opportunities for people to get in touch and let the presenters and listeners know what they think about whatever is being discussed. In addition, there are always features about each of the Bonfire societies, about safety at Bonfire and any special events planned in the days leading up to the 5th.
