Sunday 31 January 2016
BHR 1287/Gateway 97.8, Essex.
On the sad day that we heard of the loss of the great broadcaster Sir Terry Wogan, I made my radio debut. Ironic, really. Huge thanks to BHR 1287 and to Gateway 97.8. I was amazed by the number of people listening throughout Essex and Kent and somewhat daunted when I heard the show was also being broadcast in St Louis, Missouri. The power of community radio! Huge thanks to Alan Newman who interviewed me and John Jenkins (pictured), and to the fabulous Jacqui James. The show was fantastic publicity for 'Cholera: The Victorian Plague' and my heritage work in Rochester and at The Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre.

Amanda Thomas will be signing copies of Cholera: The Victorian Plague.
What a fabulous day at Rose Lane Waterstones Canterbury signing copies of Cholera: The Victorian Plague and meeting Christmas shoppers. Thank you Pen and Sword Books for delivering the books and point of sale material. So many people came - even a 'fan' from Belgium! Waterstones were left with just three copies to put back on the shelves. Special thanks to Waterstones staff and the wonderful, wonderful David Wood (pictured) who organised the signing. Also felt very supported by the University of Kent at Canterbury.
