For the next few weeks, while Noreen concentrates on caring for her own brand new addition to the radio world, we welcome Rosie Duffield to Radio 3. Hot foot from a stint in Germany with the British forces broadcaster BFBS, and previously a host at BBC Radio Lincolnshire in the UK, Rosie is really happy to be back in the land of her birth, and looking forward to sharing some great lunchtime chat and music with you...on The 123 Show.
The 123 Show: Have you ever heard of the Ageless Generation? If you’re between 40 and 60 you’re in it – defying the traditional perceptions of middle age by enjoying fashion, keeping up to date with technology and maybe even starting your own business. Sandra Peat thinks companies are missing out on this by ignoring such a huge demographic. Hear more after 2pm. (1:15pm-3pm, or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
A later start for the 123 Show today, as we'll be broadcasting the Financial Secretary's annual talk to the local business community. After 2, we wrap up the Young Reader's Festival with author Renée Watson talking to our reporter Angie Man, about her writing, and interaction with young people. After 2.30, H7N9 avian flu.
