Hi Bill,

The line chair dancing is exactly what we're after!! The position of the week has proved a huge hit, so we'll definitely do it again next week if that's ok?


Rachael Sutherland,
Broadcast Assistant, BBC Coventry and Warwickshire  11/01/2011

Actually Bill, I think you are such a wonderful guy, you don't need much help, and your enthusiasm is absolutely breathtaking, really is.

Continue doing what you are doing and as long as I am here there will always be a place in our magazine for you and in our hearts too.

Hi There Bill,

Its Sarah here from BBC Coventry & Warwickshire - I just wanted to make sure that you are fine with details for Monday? I was wondering whether there is anyway you might be able to join us a little earlier? If you could be here for 3:10pm ready to go on air at 3:20pm? This will just give you a bit more time with us on air.

Please let me know your thoughts - I need to hear from you by the close of day Thursday as I am in and out of the office there after.

Best regards

Hi Bill,

It was nice talking to you earlier - I will give you a call shortly regarding what time we want you to come in on Friday but just to give you a bit of background on the Breakfast Programme…It's a 2 hours all speech based programme presented by Tony Livesey (also doe the sports on NWT and various other bits on TV), we talk about allsorts, from simple human interest based stories, new stories and any other random things.

We thought you'd make an interesting guest on out programme hence the phone call. The interview would probably last for about 5-7 mins - possibly longer depending on how it all pans out of the day. The conversation will be pretty general, Tony will ask you about your background, and when it all started for you, how you thought of the idea of armchair line dancing and how it all works . 

Will you please bring in some line dancing music - because although it's radio and you can't see it it'll just sound good if you can teach Tony some line dancing - he'll be able to describe it well.

Look forward to meeting you on Friday

Kind Regards

Hi Bill,

Long time no speak - hope you are well. I know you have been communicating with Laurent our Editor recently and it was great to hear that you are again helping people to dance and enjoy moving to music despite any frailties or disabilities they may have.

I know you must be putting a lot of smiles on the faces of the people you spend time with. You will be aware that our campaign this year includes some dances adapted for wheelchair users - you paved the way for this some years ago and it would be great to have you involved again. 

I realise that what you do now is a little different but the principles are the same and I wondered if you had scripted any of your routines. 

If you have I would be interested to see them and assess if we could print some in our Adapted Dance slot. Let me know what you think:-) Steve Healy
