Today we have a bit of a mix because this week we were live on 97.9 Valley FM. It’s so great to be able to do a live show on our local community radio station, the kids really get a buzz from being live on air, and they do the entire show themselves. Marcus, Sophie and Alex all recorded segments for the show, so today they will be the features of our podcast.
