Today’s broadcast is slightly shorter but nevertheless it’s still informative and hopefully entertaining. We start with some cheerful music and a tribute to Kenny Rogers. There’s on the phone topical conversations with the chairman of Hungerford Town Football Club and the Centre Fundraising and Supporter Relations Officer at the National Animal Welfare Trust at Trindledown. You can also listen again to the interview with a woman who cares for injured and sick birds and we’ll find out from someone who lives in Pennsylvania how the Corona Virus is affecting people across the pond. All this plus ideas for keeping yourself amused during the lockdown, local and national news stories and the second in the series about a well know composer. Enjoy!
