  1. Ho Drivetime, Isnt Polly great? I am learning so much by listening to the BCfm coverage of the Occupy movement. Thank you Tony and all others bringing this quality broadcasting to our homes. And loving Tracy Chapman’s meaningful and timeless number “talking about a revolution”. Bring It On.

    • Thanks Nadia,
      Unfortunatly Polly has moved on from Bristol now and much as I’d love to have her on again she has gone I’m afraid.
      If anyone knows where Polly is please ask her to get in touch if she’s heading back to Bristol – or we could even take her contributions on the phone.
