Spot the guest!! The gallery isn’t definitive, but gives a feel for the more than 220 guests who shared with us during 2019.

The end of another year “In the Cooler” gives me the opportunity to say “Thank You” to all those guests who have graced our studio in Chipping Campden, or who otherwise have bravely allowed me to interview them about their music/book/charity/project/event during the last 12 months!! There’s enough material here for a book or two of my own!!

And a special “Thank You” to our programme sponsors “Cavendish Park Care Home”, who join with NCCR in putting something back into the community.

So, this week’s edition of “In the Cooler” will be a looking back at the past year’s guest list, a few reminiscences, and plenty of music!!

Please join me on Friday evening (7-9pm)(www.nccr.co.uk) or Sunday Noon till 2..and on the Listen Again link…..
