Good News, Good Guests, No Grief!In 2019 I started reviewing the newspapers on a more regular basis for Talk Radio and BBC Radio London. Whilst presenting a variety of news topics, I had the knack for finding positive elements in even the most depressing of news stories and shining a light on the feel-good stories, which generally get buried amongst negative headlines.

Recording date 16th November 2020. Who knows where the next new friend will pop up?! In this case, it was on a trip to a production studio 3 years ago.
