As many of you will know, Former Southampton-
won the EFDSS songwriting competition at Cheltenham with the song 'The
Gold Standard'. As a result, Gene sent the CD in to Radio Derby and
'The Gold Standard' was broadcast last Monday 21 May on the
'Folkwaves' programme presented by Mick Peat and Lester Simpson, and
broadcast on local radio across four counties around Derby.
This programme may be heard on BBC 'Listen Again' on the internet
until it is replaced by next Monday's new version. Gene's song is
right at the end of the two-hour programme, but the whole is always
worth a listen (and you can fast forward).

you're into internet radio.
