Local councillor Andrew James was a guest on TCR fm’s morning show on Monday, 12 November, and talked about his role as local councillor, Tamworth Borough Council’s scrutiny committees and Nadine Dorries’ appearance in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Cllr James joined his fellow Borough Councillor and regular TCR fm DJ Lee Bates in the studio and got to select a few tracks that were played for the listeners and joined Lee in his regular Dallas update.
Andrew said, “My first experience of a live radio studio was enjoyable, it was good to get to talk about being a Borough Councillor and share my varied musical tastes with the listeners of Tamworth.”
Lee Bates said, “Andrew was a star today, he was relaxed throughout the show, gladly joined in my Dallas saga and spoke passionately about being a Borough Councillor in Tamworth.”
The Mercian ward councillor discussed the Borough Council’s Healthier & Safer scrutiny committee, of which he is the current Chairman, and some of the issues that are being scrutinised including the health of children and young people in Tamworth.
Lee Bates also asked Cllr James what he thought about Mid Bedfordshire MP Nadine Dorries’ decision to appearance in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here and Cllr James said that she should be in Parliament not in Australia but Nadine’s celebrity phone number was in his speed dial, so he could vote for her to stay out there.
Today’s show can be heard again here and Lee Bates is on TCR fm every Monday from 10am until noon playing songs and tackling local issues.
