Leigh Chambers welcomes Benjamin Johncock whose debut novel The Last Pilot about the space race won the Authors Club Best First Novel Award as well as glittering reviews from the likes of Ian Rankin, AL Kennedy and Jon McGregor. Benjamin talks about his fascination with space exploration and why he still writes by hand in pencil! We also hear from business mentor, Siobhan Costello on how to write the perfect business book. And former nurse, Daryl Oliver, explains how working with dementia patients prompted her first novel, Steel Wool.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are listening to Cambridge 105 Radio than ever but in a competitive media landscape it’s sometimes difficult to make a noise. And advertising revenues are falling across the sector.
Our brief is to give a voice to those sometimes excluded from traditional media. And the presenters you hear on air are all volunteers themselves, who give up their time for free. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who listens to our shows, our podcasts, whose businesses we feature, helps to pay for it, our future would be much more secure.
Please help to support community radio and make our future more secure. You can support Cambridge 105 Radio by giving monthly or by making a one-off contribution through Local Giving.
