Feature on Kenya

Exeter based Jill Ashby is a frequent visitor to Kenya where she has made friends and got involved in educational projects. Identifying a lack of resources in schooling there, back home with friends Jill has been fund raising to improve the schooling of Kenyan children. In the next rootsandshoots on Monday 14th May, Jill will be talking to Martin Hodge about Kenya and they will play a range of Kenyan music.

So, Kenyan music and more this Monday with Martin, Rich and Martin.

Party Time

Yes, it was Party Time yesterday as Phonic FM opened its new studio to one and all as part of Exeter Respect. That would explain all the background noise you no doubt heard as rootsandshoots was on air with presenters Martin Hodge (left), Rich Cooke (centre) and Martin Henning (right). The words in brackets are a reference to the photo, not necessarily political affiliations.

Thanks especially last night to Rory and Dave Wood (left) for research, chronicling and photographing!
