My first time on radio! @RNorthumberland @listenupnorth #WW1

Today was the very first time any of my work had aired on radio, thanks to Rachel Cochrane of @listenupnorth who recorded my poem ‘Voice of the Sam Browne Belt’ following a WW1 writing workshop at the Durham Light Infantry Museum earlier in the summer. The hour long programme featured music from the era as well as several readings which Rachel had recorded. I was delighted that my poem had been chosen among other great pieces of poetry and short stories.

For those that missed it, there is another chance to listen in on Thursday at 7pm. Just follow the link http://www.radionorthumberland.com/index.php/live-feed and enjoy.
