This is the power of live and local radio, and it's beautiful.

Obviously, we've got a bias. We're radio jocks who are on every morning as a service to the people in the Flint and surrounding areas. We believe in live, local radio. And this video is a perfect example of WHY we believe in it. Kudos to BBC Radio Solent! What a lovely thing to do for this gentleman.
