Happy Birthday Chris Needs!
Some of you may be wondering who is Chris Needs? Well, the lovely Debby, who takes the trouble to acknowledge birthdays on Facebook, has made this graphic and there’s an image of Chris in the top left hand corner.
Chris is a Radio Wales presenter who has a late evening weekday show called The Friendly Garden.
A charming Welsh fan, Ivy, determined to ensure Jonathan’s solos were played on radio, is a regular listener to Chris’ show and started requesting any of Jonathan’s solos. Chris kindly obliged and he’s been obliging ever since! Now he has requests and listeners from as far a field as Canada and Australia who make requests and listen in to hear Jonathan’s voice soar from radios and computers.
Chris is so kind to us Fantoines that I thought he deserved a post all to himself to wish him Many Happy Returns of the Day and may his birthday be as special as he is to us.
Many Fantoines regularly email national and local radio stations but seldom get a response but Chris is the exception. All we can do is keep trying to attract the attention of producers and/or presenters. Maybe Chris can put in a word with the powers that be in BBC land in London!
Happy Birthday Chris!
