We’ve got some great shows and content for you to enjoy this week. To kick off we’ll be playing some featured tracks by a wonderful country music talent. There’s an interview with a remarkable young lady who’s raised money for a charitable cause, and we’ll find out from an ex-IT professional the joys of watercolour paining. A sustainable food expert will talk to us about the environmental impact of the food choices we make including the pros and cons of veganism and with all this wet weather our racing expert will tell what impact it might have on the weekend’s action. Plus we’ll hear from a woman who’s achieved so much since living in the Lambourn Valley and it’s another round of the fortnightly pop quiz. For the final 2 hours there’s afternoon conversation with a bat expert and the 4LEGS resident astronomer to tell what’s been happening recently in our night sky.
WHAT A FANTASTIC LINE-UP. Enjoy people.
7am – 9am The Pete Brady Breakfast Show
Two more hours of music to start your day. This week’s featured artist has sold over 100 million records to date. It’s Linda Ronstadt who retired in 2006. Don’t miss it!
9am – 11am The Yabber Yabber Show
On this week’s show Chris has 2 great guests. The first is a remarkable young lady called Polly Weaving (pic) who at the tender age of 7 raised an incredible sum of money just before Christmas for Crisis, the charity for the homeless. We’ll find out what inspired her to do this and how she achieved it. The second guest is Alan Harding (pic) who’s an amateur artist, and in particular likes using the medium of watercolour. How did this passion and talent come about, I’m sure that and other questions will be answered.
11am – 12 noon This Week with Penny
Sustainable food expert Lawrence Woodward (pic) will talk about the environmental impact of the food choices we make including the pros and cons of veganism. Lawrence, who lives in Lambourn, was a founder and Director of the Elm Farm Organic Research Centre for 30 years. In 2001 he was awarded an O.B.E. for services to organic farming, having played a pivotal role in the development of the organic sector in the UK and internationally. He is a director of Beyond GM and Whole Health Agriculture and is a passionate advocate for the underlying wholistic concepts of organic food and farming; and how they relate to food quality and health under today’s social, economic and environmental conditions.
12noon – 12.30pm The Downland Racing show
What impact is the we weather having on Racing and will it disrupt the weekend’s racing action? Tune in to the show with 4LEGS very own ‘turfologis’t Pat Murphy to get the latest UK Racing information. You know it makes sense.
12.30pm – 1.30pm Knock Knock with Suzi Cairns
‘Tougher than the rest,’ Rhona Scanlon (pic) has excelled in the equine world, survived life-changing injury, hosted the Lambourn Valley community in two different hostelries and now is the Shepherdess of an altogether different flock. Another fascinating tale from a woman who fell in love with rural West Berkshire.
1.30pm – 2.30pm Pop Quizzical with Tim Stutt
Another round of this popular fortnightly music quiz with the entertaining Tim Stutt. Whatever your musical tastes there’s a round for everyone. So take that lunchtime break, get the memory bank working and see if you can reach the dizzy heights of 10 points.
2.30pm – 4.30pm Face2Face with Linda & Tim Forrester.
Tim’s back and is co-presenting with wife Linda. They have 2 guests in the studio this week. Their first is Bob Brittain who’ll be talking about his involvement in the Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire Bat Group, which is affiliated to the Bat Conservation Trust. They’ll find out what they do, why it matters and how people can get involved. Their second guest is 4LEGS favourite astronomer Peter Birtwhistle (pic) who’ll inform us about the latest viewings in the night sky. Tim and Linda will also report on their recent trip to Cape Town and will offer advice to anyone planning a trip there.
