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…..

In the studio..Jon Buxton will be telling us all about the music of Heronimus Fin.. “Record Collector Magazines readers vote the band consistently in their top 500 collectable artists 6 years running (even toppling Syd Barrett, The Stereophonics, Cream, The Eagles, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Robert Plant, Joe Satriani, Can, Roger Waters) and John Vignola write in Italy’s alternative rock magazine Rockerilla “the capacity of the band to mix the tone and alternate the acoustics in a contagious electric riff, produces compositions filled with yearning and melancholy with total originality ….. our rational attempt stops here at the evident beauty of the sound” …
