Welcome to the 'Bakery Bears Radio Show' Episode 62
 
In todays show we tackle a subject that is close to our hearts, books! Not the digital kind, but the ones you can pick up and touch. A question which has been worrying us is are we living through the end of the bookshop as we know it? On our walk today we talk through our history with books, our love of libraries and of course bookshops. But we also touch on audio books and digital books as we consider that perhaps there is a place for all of them.
 
Join Kay & Dan as they:
  • Discuss lollipop ladies and gentlemen!
  • Mention Steptoe & Son https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steptoe_and_Son

Welcome to the 'Bakery Bears Radio Show' Episode 57

Our sixteen year old daughter, Bryony, suggested to us a few weeks ago that we should do a Radio Show on why TV shows were better in the 1980's. That got us thinking, was that statement actually correct, 'Were TV shows better in the 1980's?' In this show we try and answer it. Along the way we talk about some of our favourite TV shows and how TV has changed over the last thirty years. We conclude the show with giving you our answer.
