Thanks to everybody who joined me for my Remembrance Day show today. Another 3 hours of counting down, this week with a poignant twist.
Lots on the show as ever – here are some of the highlights:
At 3:30, I spoke to local man Richard Adams about his experiences in the digital industry, his upcoming exhibition at Haslemere Museum and how we should be preparing children for the future. You can hear the podcast here: Richard Adams Podcast (BR)
The Weekend Guide was jam packed with events last week and led with the great new ‘Paddington 2’ film for the kids getting a 4 and a half star rating.
JP get us ready for tonight’s pre-Blackpool Strictly! He thought that local lady Ruth Langsford could be in danger tonight but wants to see her through to next week.
This week’s Crack The Connection was all to do with drinks – water, moonshine and milk all featuring in the song titles.
JP gave an emotional response to today’s Remembrance Day memorials by sharing his favourite wartime poem and playing Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
With no Premier League fixtures, it was a look to local rugby and the weekend’s F1 in the sport reports.
A busy show but a great one! I’ll be back next week for another ‘Countdown to Saturday Night’ from 3pm.
