Read on for the details of this week’s show…

We start this week with Andy Batcock from the British Army soldiers’ charity ABF, formerly known as the Army Benevolent Fund. Jeff Sparks discussing a benefit gig to be held at the Reckless Engineer for the fund.

We have the final part this week of the long interview with Allan Francovi.

Our correspondent Jason Yannacopoulos has a form of Autism and describes going to see a recently released play called ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time’ by Mark Haddon which he gives a very critical review of as being rather patronising. He thinks the play sees autism as a disease which it is not. Not enough disabled people are in work, yes, but whose fault is that?

Bristol based band ‘Remez’, Dav’id & Miriam Tzadok perform English and Hebrew songs from their new repertoire:

  1. Times Like These;
  2. Yedi-Dee;
  3. Schkalim.
