lover of music and stories ,

Wonderfully told heart warming stories.

I came to this podcast late and have been listening to the stories; imagining the people, events and settings … wondering what happened next in each particular story. Just saddened that there doesn’t seem to be any further episodes since May and really hope a new series starts again soon. 🙏

I just love this Podcast

I’ve been listening to this lovely podcast since it started . Amazing tales about amazing people. Thank you I find it a real escape from life. Some times I listen while out walking other times cutting the grass and recently when driving home from London after a long shift at work, I too live in Suffolk.
It often makes me laugh or cry. And your voice is just so easy to listen too. I can’t wait for the next episode.

Heartwarming

Having recently been introduced to the airing cupboard, it has quickly become my favourite podcast. I have now listened to all the episodes and I am waiting eagerly to the next episode. Your storytelling, delivery, voice are out of this world! WOW
