Yesterday I met a young woman who was homeless, begging and selling her paintings to try to make some money.
I spoke with her. She offered me a painting for all I had in my pocket, that was just over a pound.
I was not going to agree to that. I went to a cash machine, brought this painting and now it is going to be a spot prize in the RADIO DISCO we are running to support Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter. That is just four weeks away.
I am playing that song quite a bit lately, it was on the playlistfor Friday's show and it's number three on the playlist for tomorrow.
From 12noon on Saturday 9th March to 12noon on Sunday 10th March DAMON is organising a non-stop football match to support The Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter.
Josh has said all along that he will be involved, yesterday he announced he wants to play.
Tomorrow I will work with Mrs Josh, aka Jelena, to organise what she will be doing.
Jelena, I want you to work with me to organise sponsorship for the tracks I will play on the RADIO DISCO and I want you to help me promote the show.
The painting will be a spot prize within the disco.
I met the lady selling her paintings when I went to the postoffice to send a letter to Eddie - EDDIE THE EAGLE who is supporting the RADIO DISCO with a prize.
You heard on that YouTube clip Jack Charlton speaking about Eddie The Eagle. Every word he said is true, trust me Eddie is an amazing man.
Let me play you the opening track from the RADIO DISCO. Well it has to be Ottawan, can't be anything else can it ?
Wasn't Jack Charlton once manager of Sheffield Wednesday ?
We have this as a spot prize for the RADIO DISCO.
Would you like to win it ?
This or the painting, or Eddie's autographed DVD. Or this......
We have an amazing book telling the story of Radio Caroline and Pirate Radio.
