FUN WITH THE LUNCH BUNCH
About once a month or so, I appear as one of three guests on Radio Lincolnshire's Lunch Bunch slot. Usually, the programme is hosted by the lovely Nicola Gilroy but new presenter Chris Berrow is standing in for her for a few weeks as she hosts the drivetime programme. Other presenters who have stood in for Nicola during my appearances are Rob Underwood and Jo Wheeler.
The Lunch Bunch slot begins at about 1.15 in at this link and fellow Lunch Bunchers were Sue Richie and Phil Crow. I think it's available for another 29 days on iPlayer.
It's a bit like a pub lunch chat where light news issues of the day are discussed. This time we talked about average speed cameras and the family who loved their five year-old goldfish so much they travelled 200 miles across the country to take it to a vet willing to operate on it for £200 after a local vet told them it wasn't worth it.
A new aspect of the show is that we were asked in advance to suggest our favourite three songs and why we like them. It was an impossible task so I chose three that I liked on the day. Chris then chose one of each. Sue's choice was America by Simon and Garfunkle, Phil's was Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie and mine was Sway by Dean Martin which is one of my all time favourites because it is so uplifting and makes me want to dance and more than that it makes me wish I could dance like the professionals in the Youtube video below.
