Go to 18:45 for the First Step interview and 1:47:02 for Jimmy B & the Death Rattles.

First up tonight I chatted to three lovely ladies – Sinead, Lisa (both pictured above) & Debbie – about First Step, a centre specialising in early years care for pre-school children with learning difficulties and disabilities. Debbie is from the centre management team while Sinead and Lisa have both had children attending. Lisa is holding a pamper event in aid of First Step this coming Wednesday (June 5th) at 7pm at St Augustines Church Hall in Rush Green, with a huge number of stalls & services on offer, as we found out! You can read more on the Facebook event page here.

Next up I was joined by Mark, Dan and Dave from Jimmy B & the Death Rattles (aka The Professor, Jimmy B and Skid!). The six-piece released their first album, Porno Taught Me How to Love, earlier this year, and also played a sell-out gig at the Joiners in their hometown of Southampton. Click to listen back to them discuss the story behind the band getting together and forming their personas, how they got an album out within a year of forming (no mean feat!) and more! Find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
