On this week’s episode, we have a tribute to Sara Coward who played Caroline Sterling from Kosmo, Lucy and the New York meet up posse.
Lucy is living it up in New York this week and brings us a huge Barwick Green opening from the Big Apple posse of DumTeeDum who are out in force for her royal visit. The DumTeeDummers reflect on Caroline Bone and her contribution to The Archers over nearly 40 years. The podcast also salutes the passing of Sara Coward who has sadly lost her return match with cancer.
In Lucy’s seat this week is the experienced radio broadcaster Hardeep Singh Kohli to present the podcast alongside Roifield. Inevitably with two such contrasting characters the discussion ranges far and wide – Hardeep covers growing up listening to the programme sitting in his father’s car in Glasgow – but still feeling connected to events because his family are of farming origin in the Punjab – to the terraces of St Andrews through a wide ranging geo-political discussion as well as looking at events in Ambridge. A remarkable tour de force.
By the way does anyone else thing Roifield should be given the anchor job at Desert Island Disks given his remarkable ability to extract such information from the guests which appear on the podcast? No doubt Lucy and her monologue will be back next week and hopefully Basil will be better by then.
Calls this week are from:
New York Nigel who wants to know why women called gossips but not men?
Bye Bye Steve, who wants the girls to bowl googlies.
Witherspoon, who wonders why IV’s where mentioned
Julie from Pickering who wants her Charlie back.
Claire Astbury who is a fan of Hardeep.
Vicky Cole who sits listens and blushes
Naked Fingers who is on the claret
