A brand new documentary series kicks off this September on BBC Radio Bristol. Broadcast every weeknight at 6.15 on BBC Radio Bristol, 'My Home of Music' tells the personal stories of musical homes in the West.
And we have been featured!
Throughout the series, locations will range from The Old Duke, The Glen and The Granary to Russ Conway's childhood home and the Bristol Institute of Modern Music. The programmes will also be telling the story of those less likely musical homes, such as Twerton Park, Milsom Street in Bath and music therapy at St. Peters Hospice.
