What’s On 2022-08-19

Here’s what’s on FABULOUS 4LEGS Radio

7am – 9am The Pete Brady Breakfast Show

It appears that we have swapped heat for rain at the moment but the music on the Breakfast Show remains the same – great sounds for two hours including the Featured Artist at 8:00. This week Pete looks at Roxy Music, the band that had a huge influence on Glam Rock and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. Don’t miss it!

9am – 12noon Yabber Yabber with Chris Capel

Chris will be joined on the phone by Mark Summers (pic right, with the hat) and Ken Critcher who are raising 25k for the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre by taking on the 3 peaks challenge with two business colleagues. Molly Hall (pic) from N.A.W.T at Trindledown will be in the studio to provide the latest news from the Centre and Brian Quinn will give his usual look at the local news and events in the area. There’ll also be lesser known national news items of the week and the usual brand of Chris’s music. Enjoy.

12noon - 12.30pm Downlands Racing with Chris Carter Brennan

Chris will be phoning in live from the York Ebor festival and will review some of the big races so far including the incredible performance by  superhorse ‘Baaeed’ in the Juddmonte International stakes. Hopefully Chris will find the winner of Saturday’s Ebor handicap as well

12.30pm – 1.30pm This week with Penny

This week Penny will be talking to Sarah Roberts (pic right)  about her mother Joyce Warne’s memoirs of being evacuated as a child with her family to Kintbury in 1941. It is an incredibly moving and poignant story of hardship and love at a time when Kintbury had 16 shops and 7 pubs – but Inglewood Cottage, where Joyce’s family lived, had a deep inside well instead of running water, an outside loo, little heating in the winter and the family had very litte money to spend on food and clothes. Nevertheless Joyce has fond memories of laughter and long days enjoyed in the lovely countryside.

Joyce’s parents were Hilda and Fred Moss, her brother was Ken Moss (who is fondly remembered for his weekly collection of the football pools round Kintbury) and one of her sisters was Mavis Reeve who did a lot of work with the church.

1.30pm - 2.30pm Middle Aged Musical Musings with Owen Killminster

This week in recognition of a recent landmark birthday, the show will feature the music of none other than Sir Paul McCartney

2.30pm - 3pm Let There Be Drums with Max & Chris

In the second show in the series Max and Chris focus on female drummers including Viola Smith (pic left) who was renowned for being the “fastest girl drummer in the world” during the 1930s. She also lived to the ripe old age of 107. There’s also audio clips from Karen Carpenter, Dave Clark and Ginger Baker. The show concludes with a piece on Ringo Starr and 2 of The Beatles tracks
