It’s ‘Nostalgia Day’ on 4 LEGS Radio this Friday.
We’ll be looking back at what life was like in the Lambourn Valley 50+ years ago. So join us as we reminisce with some local guests of stories, characters, activities and of course music from times gone by.
As it’s election day we’ll also keep you posted with election results.
Here’s our broadcasting schedule for Nostalgia Day on Friday 13th December:
7am – 9am The Pete Brady Breakfast Show
Join Pete for The Breakfast Show when he’ll be playing the hit songs from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s with the odd Christmas tune thrown in as well. You’ll also be kept up to date with election results.
Don’t miss it!
