Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces!

February 28th, 2013

Ramblings is now available to listen to a BBC iPlayer for the next week, and is also downloadable as a podcast for the next 30 days. Toyah talks to, and walks with, Clare Balding in Croome Par, Worcestershire, chatting about her health, childhood and family life, how her career began and future plans. A great interview. It’s also repeated on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday at 6am.

• Lots of great feedback on Twitter for Ramblings: “Always love Ramblings but esp enjoying today’s with the resilient Toyah. Inspiring for us who are also recovering from injury“, “Just heard lovely Toyah on Ramblings with claire Balding” and “Just listened to Clare Balding taking to Toyah Willcox on Ramblings – fabulous interview” are just a few of the comments.
