Hi Shirley,
Thought I would drop you a quick message to say thanks for all your help and support you gave me in the early stages of my radio career.   I was listening to the Leisure show with Nick this morning and remembered the fun I had working on that show at the County Ground, so I thought I would get in touch.  It is great to see the station doing so well and I hope it continues to go from strength to strength.
