Scott Cupit on BBC Somerset Radio

On the morning of Saturday 13th July, Scott & Arrianne were driving to Hayley & Adrian’s (our Clapham teachers) wedding in Cornwall. As they drove through Somerset they were tuned into BBC Somerset. The compère asked for anyone who had broken a World Record to phone in. Suddenly Scott found himself on the radio with Vicki Clark of BBC Somerset Radio. Swing Patrol broke the Charleston World Record back in October 2015 and it’s great to listen in and reminisce about this amazing part of our history.

 

You can also listen to the full programme Vicki Clark sits in on catchup on the BBC Somerset website here
