I've been asked if I can remind everyone that apart for entering our competitions, which you all are thank you, we also need to think about requests for our music shows as these are made in advance. If you'd like to send a greeting all you have to do is use the contact link on any page of the website and tell what you'd like us to play for you and in whose show. We'll make sure you get in and make someone's Christmas!
I can't remember when we last had such odd topics being sent to us. For example, how many of you have had blue honey...a phone bill in the millions or a request for a job interview from the CIA? That's the kind of start it's been.
Yes, Expatsradio contributors have been at it again with a wide variety of topics for next week here on your favourite station. We've also been promised some more offers for you including signed copies of new books. We shall be talking to Tim Gorringe and Martin Adams about the rise of the free magazine both in the UK and abroad. They run the highly successful e themagazine in Sussex which reaches over 20,000 homes every two months and is planning to expand even farther.
We welcome Penny of Penny's recipes to Expatsradio.com where she will be bringing us new ideas from her kitchen. This time she is making mincemeat following two recipes. Join her here every week on Thursdays.
It's October already and our German gardener Erika tells us more about what you can still plant in your garden for winter growth. She also talks about saving your own seeds and how they will grow better the second season.
Today we are looking at frozen pensions from Jim Tilley in Australia, winter fuel payments and voting rights for expats from Brian Cave in France. These topics are of major concern to all expats and we hope you will contact us with your opinions.
On Monday we shall be speaking to Brian Cave of http://pensionersdebout.blogspot.com/ about the lack of representation in the UK for British citizens living abroad. As always, your opinions are highly valued so please do talk to us and send us your questions. You can contact us via the contact link on every page of the Expatsradio.com website.
I don't know about you but I'm quite shocked to hear that payments to pensioners who are also expats may be limited becaue they live abroad. If you are living away and would like to tell us how the rules from the UK government are affecting you we'd be pleased to hear from you.
Today we spoke to Katya Barry of Katyabarry.com who helps expats make the most of their lives abroad. You will be able to hear what she said later today. Kayta will be joining us for regular features to make sure you are well prepared for your new world.
Expatsradio is working hard behind the scenes to bring you not only great programmes but also offers from our sponsors to save you cash. Latest in the list are two offers which will save you money if you are a listener to our shows. We are currently negotiating a discount on estate agent's fees if you buy your property from one of our selected agencies and say you come via Expatsradio.com. We will be listing the first agency to do this with a selection of their properties in a week or so so keep watching to get your discount if you are thinking of buying a French home.
Expats radio was started at the end of 2005 as a small test website to see if anybody would actually be interested in talking to us or listening to what we had to say. The answer? A resounding yes! Since then through a number of exciting developments and collaborations we have become even better. Read more
