MERRY HELL ON THE BBC'S JOHNNY COPPIN 2011 HIGHLIGHTS SHOW
Just a couple of days left to hear the best of 2011 radio programme presented on several BBC regional stations by musician and poet Johnny Coppin.
Can you guess which band and which album has been included?
|I know that we included a tour of british columbia amongst our wishlist for the future but this is a link to a review by Cal Koat a broadcaster and writer in British Columbia.
He has playlisted Drunken Serenade, One More Day, This Time, The Gentle Man and his favorite, Lean On Me Love for airplay on Celt In A Twist radio, AM 1470, CJVB in Vancouver. Podcasts are available.
Thanks to Gail at Frusion for putting this in motion
|There are fabulous reviews of the album in fRoots magazine, Folk North West magazine and online at Folk & Roots - thanks to Simon Jones, Pete Fyfe and David Kidman respectively. We would love to share the reviews online but as these magazines are well worth the read then people really should get their own copy!!!

Band Members from Merry Hell ran together to raise money for the Stroke Association and are seeking your sponsorship, please donate whatever you can to help in our quest.
Every five minutes someone in the UK has a stroke. A stroke does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone at anytime in their life. Strokes are sudden and their consequences can be devastating.
The Stroke Association is the only charity solely concerned with helping everyone affected across the UK. Our vision is to have a world where there are fewer strokes and all those touched by stroke get the help they need. The Stroke Association can only provide life-changing support and research with your help.
Please help support The Stroke Association's vital work by sponsoring me online. Just visit fundraising.stroke.org.uk/MerryHell. All donations are secure and sent directly to The Stroke Association. If you are a UK taxpayer, The Stroke Association will reclaim 28 pence for every pound you donate, through Gift Aid (at no extra cost to you). This way your donation is worth even more. Make sure you click the Gift Aid box.
