Wassailing on Radio 2 Jeremy Vine Show - A West Countryman’s View
Posted on April 3, 2017 by westcountryman

Having done an interview for BBC Radio Bristol about the ceremony of ‘Wassailing’ the apple trees, I received a call from the researcher for the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2. Would I help them with a live Wassail on the show was the question. Well… I could change things around a bit and be by the phone at the required time to do the interview. Oh no! They wanted me to go to London and do the thing live on air.
