#1525 Past in the Present

It’s easy to think of time as a continuum – what is done is done, what is past is past, the future holds only new stories and possibilities.
The problem with that is, it ignores all the detritus the past speckles through the present. What do sea shanties, a cassette player and a broken heart have in common? They’re all examples of the past crashing painfully, curiously, into the present.

Christmas Special

This week we make our national debut on the Community Radio Network with All the Best’s Christmas Special.

Eliza brought her baby Arthur Plum and partner Alex White to chat about what Christmas traditions they will create for Arthur and whether Santa will exisit.  All the Best Contributor Julia Thomas and her brother Andy  popped in to talk about a Christmas lunch where they discovered they were colour blind, and Alex Kennet talks about the Christmas she kept carp in the bathtub.  We also had a couple of features:
