Matt Rosser's Music With Meaning
"Music with Meaning is our one hour a week to listen to positive, life-affirming songs, admit to each other that life isn’t always easy and share our hints and tips for a happier life.
"It isn’t therapy, it’s just a radio show, but I hope it helps you to catch your breath at the start, end or middle of your week - depending on how your week, your shifts or your sleep works!
"Is there something you do that makes life that little bit better? Do you have somewhere or something that’s your ‘Happy Place’?
"Is there a song or a piece of music that lifts your spirits? I’d love you to share your thoughts with us because your wisdom may be just what someone else needs to hear.
