Here’s an old favourite that we are repeating due to public demand (and the inches of snow that kept the Time After Time Team from making it to the studio this week.
So, to keep everyone amused until we’re back in business…here are all the nightmare tunes you never wanted to hear again piled high from wall to ceiling!
The Birdy Song…a couple of Englebert Tunes…Charles Hawtry’s Greatest Hit…and the ballad of Jock and Yono…
Yes, you’ve guessed it…we’re re-opening Stroud FM’s very own Room 101…
