An incredible demo and lady! This shows such a breadth of skill across so many different techniques, from lively personality-led radio, serious news broadcasting, reporting from live OBs - this entry has everything. I can’t fault your passion or your skill. You’ve cheered me up just listening to this, which is exactly what the radio is for! Thank you.
