A treat for fans of doggy radio!

If you like your radio with a doggy flavour then try out BBC Radio London's Barking at the Moon:

94.9 goes to the dogs with Barking at the Moon - the Capital’s first doggie radio slot!

Find out why dogs are good for you, why Toto was paid more than the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz, where the best dog walks and pet-friendly eateries are in London, what your dogs are really trying to tell you and much more in the Capital’s first dedicated doggie radio slot.

Barking at the Moon has been launched as a new segment of BBC London 94.9’s Late Nights with JoAnne Good. It was inspired by JoAnne’s own beloved Bulldog, Matilda, and is already proving a howling success with listeners.

Each week JoAnne is joined by doggie expert Anna Webb, whose Bull Terrier Molly regularly accompanies Matilda on romps in London parks and posh noshes in the city’s luxury pet-friendly hotels.

Together JoAnne and Anna celebrate what’s so wonderful about dogs with anecdotes and trivia as well as reviewing the latest doggie gadgets and tackling burning issues from the dog world.

Listeners are invited to join in too with their dog tales and recommendations on the best places to walk and hang out in London with your four-legged friends.

You’d be barking mad to miss it!

Late Nights with JoAnne Good is on Monday-Friday 10pm-2am. Check the schedule online at www.joannegood.co.uk for details of Barking at the Moon.
