That must be a really good programme to beat all the opposition! Three hours is a long time to keep everyone interested. I bet you were thrilled to bits with their success.

Nice to know my vote helped,G.mage and Sue..and it is a good programme,Chris..lots of advice and lots of humour .It always makes us smile :o)
Sorry you still don't feel well,Pam.I hope you improve soon...The programme is on Radio Leeds,and the two men named above are the presenters of the show..Joe Maiden is well known around here,having his own Nursery,and is very much involved with showing and judging at various events..The other presenter is his sidekick..not a gardener at all,but the banter is good :o)The programme was voted the best of its kind overall..x

It is Paul.I've been an avid listener for more years than I care to remember..Joe broadcasts mainly from his potting shed at home,while Tim is in the studio..They are hoping to hit the 2000 mark with members on Facebook soon Lol.
We visit his local village hall in February,where they hold their annual potato day,and his wife and her friends make awesome bacon butties ! :o))

sounds great Bloomer - if you have a link I will join and Becky and Mum will too on facebook !!!

30 Dec, 2012

 

I agree,Hywel,It was nice for them to win,:o)

Paul..its "Tim and Joe at BBC radio Leeds.."Any questions on there,are usually borne in mind for the programmes on Wednesday,and Sunday..as they don't have time to answer them on Facebook..it's mainly comments about the show..but they would be happy to get new members :o)
If you listen to the radio at all,I will have a look at the channel frequency it's broadcast on,tomorrow..as lots around the country,and abroad can get it..so you might be able to listen in ..it,s well past midnight now,so off to bed :o) x

I was thrilled they won. I have learned so much over the years listening to Tim and Joe.

31 Dec, 2012

 

The radio Channel is 774 medium wave,or 92.4 FM..if you are interested ,Paul and Pam....Wednesdays 11am to 12 noon,and Sundays ..9am to 12noon..
...........
Nice to meet a fellow listener Holly...I try not to miss it if possible ,and also had lots of good advice...pre my GoY days,as I usually ask on here now..Met them a few times at Huby,and Harrogate flower show..lovely down to earth lads..:o)
