A number of our guests have featured on more than one occasion, sometimes in their own right, sometimes as a member of a band, and sometimes representing a folk event or venue.
We have been privileged to launch quite a few CDs on air, most recently Nelson Peach 'Jack Frightenem', which is also our CD of the month for May 2012. The official launch is on our anniversary, May 21st!
