My Story (with Music) on BCB Radio

Greetings everyone! This is an extra blog, a ‘special’ if you like…let me explain:

In the lead-up to our first fundraising event this year – read all about it here https://friendsofpakati.com/2022/04/24/funds-raised-as-we-got-tied-up-for-pakati/ – I was lucky enough to have support from local press & media here in Bradford, including the radio station Bradfird Community Broadcasting – BCB – and was interviewed 3 times about it all by presenters Dom Burch & Lorna Kook.

After one of those interviews, I was asked if I would like to do a longer one, on one of their day-time shows called 1-2-1, hosted by Carole Moss. This involved giving them a brief biography, and I had to choose 8 pieces of musuc to illustrate the story. Naturally I said YES PLEASE! and below is the result…

I have to say it was a real pleasure for me, and I thank BCB for inviting me on, plus special thanks go to Carole Moss for being a wonderful.interviewer!
