Rob Saunders at Deuce Music has introduced us to:

Singer-Songwriter Kayla Grace who is based in Watford, England. 

>Having developed self-sufficiency at an early age due to her parents having to focus most of their time with her sister who has special needs, Kayla Grace quickly learned the harsh realities of life way before her friends.With a past of severe bullying, toxic relationships and manipulative friends, Kayla Grace releases her second single, Note To Self.

Hip Hop Beatmaker and Lyricist Tuu Ra who is based in New York, USA .

Listen to Tuu Ra’s new single  LondonGirl

and  ExtinctionRebellion
Written and recorded by Deuce Act Mick J Clark, his song We Will Never Surrender was offered to Extinction Rebellion after being impressed by the work they were doing peacefully protesting against climate change.  The song was welcomed by Extinction Rebellion but as they are not a registered charity it was suggested the song were to be put n to raise money for Greenpeace instead.  Details on how you can purchase the track and donate to Greenpeace can be found at

So, be sure to tune in on Friday at 7pm, or the repat on Sunday at Noon.. or on the Listen Again feature for the next 7 days….

NCCR “In The Cooler” (Noon – 2pm AND 7-9pm) Friday 25th October 2019. (

This week’s “In the Cooler” is in TWO parts!! (as a one-off!!) Angela Lamont is normally hosting “Cooler in the Afternoon”, but she is away on a short, given that the first guest is passing through Chipping Campden around lunchtime Friday, en route to a performance in Banbury.. this seemed like a good idea to “borrow” her programme!!

Our guest will be….Julian Dutton/John Le Mesurier/Sgt Arthur Wilson… with appropriate musical interludes!!
