Charlie and I appeared on BBC Radio Shropshire last week to talk about 1001jobs.

Just monkeying in the car before the studio…

I’ve never been on the radio before! Well, I have hosted a student takeover of Heart FM before, but my students did all the talking… Despite this, I must admit I wasn’t nervous. I knew exactly what I wanted to say, how important our message is, and how much we want people to take part.

The Co-Star.

The station really wanted Charlie to be part of the interview, which was so exciting for him. He talked about what he wanted to be when he grew up, spoke really clearly into the microphone, and was commendably quiet when it was ‘my turn’. The hosts were kind and encouraging with us both, and I felt like our vision for primary kids came across well.
