What’s On 2020-01-31

Well we’ve finally got here…Yes it’s Brexit Day, Hoorah I hear you say. Well we won’t be talking very much about that however on the Breakfast Show you can expect to listen to some songs that are in some way applicable to the subject.  We’ll also be talking with the 4LEGS IT expert about what technology might have in store for us in the future and there’s an interview with someone who’s aim is to spend very little in 2020.  There’s a rerun of Penny Locke’s fabulous interview with a sustainable food expert and there’s a round up of the weekly racing news from the Valley and beyond.  We’ll listen again to a Lambourn resident and entrepreneur who likes the M4, plus there’s the fortnightly pop quiz.  To wrap things up there’ll be conversation with conductor the founder of a local Orchestra who explains how and why he takes music to the disadvantaged in communities.

7am – 9am The Pete Brady Breakfast Show
Last day of the month and last day of the UK’s membership to the EU.  Today’s show is made up of songs that have titles which could apply to the last 3 years of the leaving process.  Plus today’s featured artist (which has nothing to do with Brexit) is the very talented Joni Mitchell. Don’t miss it!



9am – 11am The Yabber Yabber Show with Chris Capel
Chris will be joined by 4LEGS resident IT expert Rob Johnson (pic right) who today will be talking about future technology and what we can or might expect in the next few years. Rob will also have to get his thinking cap on as Chris will be throwing a 10 question IT quiz his way. Nothing but maximum points is expected.  There’s also a pre-recorded interview with Berkshire resident Karen Kirton (pic) who’s plan is to spend very little on anything in 2020….that should be interesting.


11am – 12 noon This Week with Penny
With Penny unavailable we take the opportunity to re-run her interview with sustainable food expert Lawrence Woodward (pic) who talks about the environmental impact of the food choices we make including the pros and cons of veganism. In 2001 Lawrence 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.

12noon – 12.30pm The Downland Racing show
More up to date racing news from within the Lambourn Valley and beyond. Plus Pat will take a look back at some key pointers from last weekend’s Cheltenham Festival trials and we’ll see what takes his fancy from a betting perspective this weekend.



12.30pm – 1.30pm Knock Knock with Suzi Cairns
Another chance to listen to Suzi’s interview with Lambourn resident and entrepreneur Danielle Hartnett (pic), and discovers how the M4 can be a real friend in true Gavin and Stacey manner




1.30pm – 2.30pm Pop Quizzical with Tim Stutt
The fortnightly Pop Quiz returns with more music questions to get your teeth stuck into. Will the Pop Master make it easy for you this week? I seriously doubt it.


2.30pm – 2.30pm Face2face with Tim and Linda Forrester
On Face2Face this week, Tim and Chris front the show for the first time. Our guest is John Lubbock (pic), conductor and founder of the Orchestra of St Johns, who recently celebrated their 50th year. John was awarded an OBE for his work with the orchestra, who combine critically acclaimed concerts in Oxford., London and Dorchester Abbey with a regular programme of visits to take music to the disadvantaged in the community. In particular John is active in promoting music to benefit people with autism. In addition, Face2Face will have its usual mix of local events, current news and nostalgia.
