Our programme on Friday 3 February had as its theme the benefits of music for older people, both as participants and as listeners. First, talking together about participation are Ann Ridley and Ann Graham. Click here to hear what was said,

Next, Neville Harris came into the studio to read his poem Cause and effect.  Then Ann Ridley read her short story Play “Misty” for me.

Annette Hames, the manager of the Byker respite centre, came into the studio to talk with Ann Ridley about the benefits of music for those living with dementia.

EC Fortnightly Ebulletin


Some of you are getting our new fortnightly ebulletin, the EC Fortnightly. As its title implies, it comes out every two weeks in order to update members on what’s happening in the period between newsletters.

Only 494 members have so far subscribed to this service. If you have email, would you like to add your name to the subscription list?  We think that you might find it a useful service to keep you up to date.  If you want to receive EC Fortnightly, please ring the office on  0191 208 2701 or email her at [email protected]

Of course, EC Fortnightly requires a bit of work to put together. Would you be willing to join a small team of members to take responsibility for doing this? If you’re interested, please ring Steve on 0191 273 4727; leave a voice message if he’s not in. We would, of course, give you training in the technical aspects of putting the bulletin together.
