Wed 01 March  2023 – Cross My Heart presented by Mike Beaman
There have been a great many songs featuring the word ‘heart’ and this programme will feature some of the great ones so expect to hear Billie Holliday saying ‘Good morning to heartache’ and Frank Sinatra urging us to remain ‘Young at heart’ plus contributions from Ella Fitzgerald, Neil Young, Francoise Hardy, Elvis Presley and Dusty Springfield to name but a few.

Wed 15 March 2023 – Danger, Restrictions & Belt Tightening presented by Brian Luck. The theme of this programme is parallels between early WW2 and Britain and our lives today. The music and discussion will highlight similarities between early war years and Covid-stricken Britain with its lockdowns, energy crisis and spiralling inflation.

Wed 29 March 2023 – Light Hearted Beethoven presented by George Saddington. A belated 250th anniversary tribute that will include some light hearted but brilliant performances of Ludwig van’s greatest hits plus a few examples of the composer letting his his down.
