Turn The Page
As we turn the pages of our history, we can always go back to an earlier chapter to see where we have come from.
Join me each Monday as we tell some of these stories. They will make us laugh and they will make us cry, and what we learn from them will enrich our lives.
Heroes and villains, rogues and rascals, soldiers and civilians, every one of them deserves to have their tales told.
In each episode we will tell two stories, play two pieces of appropriate music and of course, like Wreck and Roll, regale you at the end of each show with a puntastically brilliant piece of humour.
Like sand through the hourglass, these are the stories of our lives
