Well I was a bit light on live guests for this the final PACKED LUNCH show before the clocks go back, but in spite of this the sun was shining and the music mix shone as well, with a collection of some of the greatest oldies from people like Gene Pitney & Marc Almond to Westlife and the great Tom Jones along with some of the best current releases from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Brett Anderson and James Morrison. All guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
On top of this we were once again able to present FRANCES CLAMP with our BRENTWOOD & BILLERICAY BYGONES feature. Before I mention what Frances was talking about this week, I should mention that during the programme I was pleased to publicise the DROP IN being held between 10am and 3pm at BILLERICAY LIBRARY this coming Monday. If you have any memorabilia, photos or similar artefacts, the BILLERICAY HISTORY TEAM would love for you to pop by and see them on Monday. And don’t worry if you only have something recent, because in 30 years time that could be of great interest to a future generation. After all history is made every day.
Anyway back to Frances, this week Frances was telling us all about one of the few remaining Medieval buildings in Brentwood at 63-65 High Street. Here’s what she had to say this week: –[audio:https://www.phoenixfm.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/Bygones-25th-October.mp3|titles=Bygones 25th October]
Now Frances knows that I like to appear to have half a brain so I try to unearth a few pieces of information ahead of each programme, but she’s stumped me good and proper for next week. Frances has chosen to talk about Burstead Hall in Billericay which it seems no longer exists, but was built sometime in the 18th century. So far however I can unearth absolutely nothing about this so like you, will have to wait for Frances to reveal all next week.
That’s it from me. Have a good week and don’t forget to put the clocks back tonight!
