It was an hour of discussion on issues that they care about, social media and mental health, environmental issues and global warming, mental health after a brain injury. All mixed in with dedications from the public. The second hour was a music and chat program with Nat and max.
On Saturday 4th August they were present in our Stratford Market talking to local people about the work they have done with Welcombe radio and what we offer Stratford upon Avon. Many thanks to them for all their help.
