FOREGROUNDING at BBC Radio Cumbria.

John Hall has been researching the contents of the station's vinyl collection and playing some of his findings on the

 Gordon Swindlehurst show. There have been 8 broadcasts so far, with more to come, here's a couple of excerpts where you can hear some of the findings, which include the Los Angeles Gospel Choir, a 3 year old Vietnamese Folksinger,

Ron Geesin, Petula Clarke, Scott Walker, Bill Oddie and others.. .

John and Ste Tyson are also developing a DJ set using the station's collection of Sound Effects records.

Thanks to Gordon ( right, below), Jennie Dennett , Richard Nankivale and Graham Marsh at The BBC for setting this up , it's been great fun and a great experience.
