Thank you for an amazing edition! Thank you so much!

You do a great show.

For anyone who missed it - and would like to listen! - here's the interview that was broadcast (narrowcast?) on Enjoy Radio today. I was interviewed by the delightful Lesley Atherton who is a fine radio host. The interview starts at 29 mins (ish) and is long. I really enjoyed chatting to Lesley and contemplating music and writing. Enjoy (radio)!

Loved it!

Interesting interview. Good mix of chat and music .👠👠

Thanks so much for inviting me on to your author's hour. I really enjoyed talking with you and enjoyed listening to the programme yesterday.
Wishing you continued success with this excellent and innovative programme.

Thank you for a wonderful edition of Words and Music! 💓💓💓

Thank you so much - again - for using one of my pieces on the show. It's nice to know that other people will be enjoying what I write.

"Really look forward. I won't be able to listen to it live this week but will listen to the recording, especially as I believe my friend Helen Whitton is the author being interviewed this week. 😊"

"I'm not afraid to say how much I enjoy this programme. Lots of poems and an insane variety of music. And you've got a cheeky personality and a contagious giggle. Will get brave one day and send something in for you to read... or maybe not. Love the show."

"Your show last night sounded very professional... shame most of the music was sh*te!!" - from someone who doesn't like metal music but who listened to a metal show!

"I loved that. I wanted to hear more. I found the sarcasm so funny"

"I so enjoyed listening today. Lovely emotional show."

"Thanks so much Lesley, I downloaded last week’s and its nice to feel useful and keep momentum for next  after-covid plans. I think you have a nice Radio voice too. I'd  be dead biased if I did radio, just telling Alan Partridge jokes and playing only The Jam and soul music. Have a good day." - SHA

"Well, yet another surreal experience! I've just heard the show on catch up. I heard some live while at work delivering for a local pharmacy but then lost the signal and besides, I was driving around grinning like an idiot. Thanks for the kind comments and the book plug. It was really good to hear To The Driving Cloud, I think it sums up the interactions involved with the colonisation of the 'new' world. Thanks also for the opportunity to take over your show, that was radio I thoroughly enjoyed." - PF

"I've been catching up on your show its always  really varied and good found particularly moving the one you did about dementia. The guy you had on was so positive and I think that sort of  gets  you to better places in itself like an emotional hovercraft. Great to be involved in as many things as possible." - SF
