Sunday Breakfast Catch Up for April so far

Sunday April 6th


The competition centred around three bits of music ranging from ‘Underneath the Mango Tree’ from Dr. No. through some 70’s ‘Sand Between our Toes’ to ‘The Air that I Breathe’. This got you to the news stories about the air quality over the UK this week including atmospheric sand from the Sahara.
