HOUR 1: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter

How Do We Balance Our Individual Needs With Being Good Citizens Of The Earth? Have we become too self-centred in the way we interact with the Earth, animals, and those around us? How do we fulfil our own destiny whilst allowing others to do the same? Is it ever right to sacrifice the rights of the individual for the common good? Are there dangers in valuing the collective over the individual or local community? Are humans more important than anything else on Earth? Join the conversation!

HOUR 2: (Begins at 0:53) Interview with Lacy J Dalton


I interview Lacy J Dalton about her music, her new single Next To Me, and the cause so dear to Lacy’s heart – protecting the wild horses of the American West and ensuring the humane treatment of horses in captivity. Lacy is one of the most instantly recognisable voices in music- the woman People magazine called “Country’s Bonnie Raitt”. From the first time Lacy J Dalton caught the public’s ear, that soulful delivery, full of texture and grit, has been a mainstay of Country Music and latterly Americana. Lacy’s always been a writer and an artist who loved music with a message and lyrics that somehow brought a new awareness to the listener. Her hit singles include million-airplay cuts such as Hard Times, Crazy Blue Eyes, Hillbilly Girl With The Blues, Takin’ It Easy, Everybody Makes Mistakes, the worldwide hit Black Coffee and her signature song 16th Avenue. We play tracks from The Last Wild Place Anthology, talk about her passion for music and horses, and why she chose Next To Me as her latest single. You can get her Next To Me and The Last Wild Place Anthology at and get more info on Lacy J Dalton and her upcoming gigs at
