We send our deepest condolences to all affected by the Manchester bombing, The London Bridge attack and the fatal fire in West London. The Tower fire in London and now the terror attack on worshipers leaving a Mosque in London,

A series of tragedies that sadly in this latest seem to be knee jerk mindless reactions. We hope and Pray for peace and calm.

Stephen  and ‘Hi Ho Oscar ‘

Stephen pictured above has recently published his second children’s book.

Kinver's Heavenly Paws is aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, but it is for adults too. A church mouse prays for a miracle and in response four heavenly dogs return from heaven to save the day. A story illustrated in colour, including a selection of photos of Kinver. It shows that friendship comes in many forms and it is never too late to show kindness to others”

This is Edmund Preston the creator and presenter of Radio Kinver and now RKWP for almost 11 years. He asks anyone who wishes, to feel free to write him for requests or to share news and opinions.

If things are bad and you feel down and blue ask Edmund to play a track just for you or to choose one, it won’t make things instantly better but it will perhaps remind you that at least we care and will share music to help - Anytime!

This week we have episode six of ‘Tom and Irma’ Chronicles of the 1950‘s”  by our own Susan Patterson

This came from a Radio Kinver request and just kept growing into this collection of warming honest heartfelt memoirs. Also available as an audio book.


Visit the shop for other of her books too.

Below Susan Patterson, the author ‘Earlene Grey’ of Tom and Irma, and many poetry books, she is in fact daughter of those indomitable  and loveable characters.

Helen Betts is a listener in Washington D.C.

She wrote of the photos which we here display:

“There was an orchid exhibit titled “orchids: A MOMENT” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden so I popped out from work to see and share it.”

We wish our dear friend Fiona Mac a Very Happy Birthday on the 22nd.
