BBC Radio Solent

I found myself as a guest on BBC Radio Solent's Julian Clegg Show recently. He was talking about Eastleigh doing so well in the football and asked for stories about the town. I, of course, have written a book about the town: Eastleigh Then and Now. I thought I would email Julian and mention it. I had a call from the show's producer and, hey presto! I was on air. I have not been on Julian's show before, so it was nice of him to have me on. We talked about some of the landmarks in the town and the origins of the town name, which was not standardised for centuries. Julian was good enough to give the book a quick plug on-air, too, which was nice of him. Thanks, Julian!
