A year of fabulous guests

One of the things I love about being a presenter on Phoenix is the opportunity to meet so many interesting people doing positive things in our community and beyond, and the end of the year gives a great opportunity to remember the wide variety of guests who’ve appeared on the Feelgood Saturday throughout the year:

Something each of my guests has in common is passion for what they’re involved with, and I hope the programme has enabled some of their commitment and enthusiasm to spread a little wider. If you’ve appeared on the show during the year thank you for your part in helping to make each week a Feelgood Saturday – and if you’re involved with something that you think might be of interest to people around Brentwood & Billericay in 2015, whether or not you’ve been on the radio before, do drop me a line at alan@phoenixfm.com.

Most importantly, thank you for listening! Have a very happy and peaceful new year.
