The Week that Was... (Friday 13th April and a bit before that!)

Good Morning, early risers

It’s a bit of a mini-week, this one, what with the bank holiday and all, but this week on Phoenix Rising, we’ve had, among other things Fatima Whitbread in the studio(check out my interview with her here:, world record attempts (well, not us personally, the Monty Python team will be in Trafalgar Square on St George’s Day, constructing the world’s biggest coconut orchestra, no less!- Go down and join them- Roy Castle was wrong-Dedication’s not always what you need to be a record breaker… sometimes you just need some coconuts). I also harped on about dog food that eliminates poo and slightly strange hobbies (inspired by someone who collected traffic lights)…

Album of the week was the current UK number 1, Kings of Leon- Because of the Times.

And that, in a very tiny nutshell, was it- the week that was!!
