Music Time

Music Requests with Walt

I think we could all do with a bit of a lift and some fun, especially this year. Our own music man, Walt, has kindly agreed to run the music requests again. It can be any kind of music you want, as long as it has a seasonal theme.

As usual, Walt has complete autonomy and can play, ignore, add or carry forward as many requests as he wants each day.

So get those requests in and many thanks to Walt for running it again for us.

      Such lovely music …. thanks Cilla and Walt. It takes me straight back to the fields I wandered in as a child of 10 +years, before the new town of Stevenage was built over it all. I was so lucky to have had that wild freedom then, and Vaughan Williams must have had it too. :-) :rose:
