We’re all in party mood today, celebrating Phoenix FM’s 4th birthday – which was actually on Wednesday. Amongst other famous people we share our birthday with is 4 minute mile runner Roger Bannister, who was 82, and Hollywood legend Joan Crawford, who would’ve been 107. It was also the 58th birthday of soul diva Chaka Khan, which gave a good reason to dig out I feel for you!
Prolific local author and historian Frances Clamp took us back to a time pre-Joan Crawford, with a fascinating look at some archeologocal finds linking Billericay with the Bronze Age. Frances joins Scott Ross every Tuesday afternoon on Phoenix FM with Bygones.

My cryptic Where am I? clue to a location somewhere in our area was “Go the way of the Great King for an education.”*
*The answer to Stuck in a moment was Starry eyed by Ellie Goulding. Where am I? was Shenfield High School, in Alexander Lane – the King in question being Alexander the Great!
