There’s another new radio show just for pets

On November 5, the British celebrate the foiling of a plot to kill King James I some 400 years ago. Known as both Bonfire Night and Guy Fawkes Night, tradition calls for fireworks. Lots and lots of fireworks.

If you have a pet, they may hate the noise of fireworks. To help combat this anxiety, Classic FM in the UK is once again going to run a radio program called Pet Sounds (see what they did there?) with music design to soothe pets during a very noisy evening. This is the third year in a row the station will run the program.

From CMU: “It will play a selection of music designed to soothe pets as they assume that the world outside is collapsing in on itself. It will also offer advice from the RSPCA on how to comfort frightened animals.”

The program will run Thursday, November 5 from 7-10 pm BST and again on Saturday, November 7 during the same time slot.
