Well, that was great fun earlier in the year playing all the live dates. After appearing with a songs and stories Stumpy performance at the North Walsham ‘Rite of Spring’ Festival in June, the Stumpy bandwagon played 2 x sold out shows in Norwich (Anteros Arts Foundation) and in North Walsham (Community Centre). The North Walsham show was a fundraiser for Poppyland Radio, North Norfolk’s Community Radio Station, and raided £600 for the station. These dates were then followed by a packed event at the Caddington Local History Group, just over the hills and field from Stumpy and gang’s old stamping grounds. A huge thank you to everyone who came along to these shows and performances.
The ‘Stumpy Sanderson’s 70s Stories’ radio show continues to thrive on Poppyland Radio, going out every Tuesday at 7pm, with the second show being a repeat as the show is recorded fortnightly. A massive thanks here to Kerry’s Home Furnishings of Midland Road, North Walsham, who very kindly sponsor the show, and who have been doing so since April.
Also, the Stumpy Sanderson’s 1970s Stories YouTube channel is now beginning to have lots of new material added, particularly performances of Stumpy’s songs – please check the channel out, for which there are some really exciting plans for this in 2024, so watch this space.
