Brilliant show x
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)!
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.
