When I was in­vited to ap­pear on Biggles FM ra­dio in Bed­ford­shire, I nat­u­rally as­so­ci­ated it with Biggles the fic­ti­tious First World War pi­lot. In fact it is a short­ened form of nearby Big­gleswade. My in­vi­ta­tion came from Dou­glas Coombes who runs a reg­u­lar pro­gramme of good mu­sic and once ran Singing To­gether for schools ( see Ev­er­green, Au­tumn 2016).

Sev­eral lo­cal ra­dio sta­tions ex­ist and are worth check­ing out be­cause many play mu­sic which the BBC ig­nores as be­ing too melodic. Clas­sic FM can be tune­ful but has a strictly lim­ited playlist and many of its other of­fer­ings have to be paid for. See what you can find out lo­cally!
