Chrissy hopped on the train from Gatwick to East Croydon, Surrey to check out the first ‘CroCroLand’ Music festival on the 6th April, catch DJ Peter Fox who kept the music going with his skills in between the bands, and Chrissy review the amazing event and hear tracks from some of the bands.
The day after the event, Foxy was hanging with none other than Croydon’s hero Captain Sensible.
The Captain has been recording locally at Panther Studios with Paul Gray, Bass player for the Damned and Local Drummer, Marty Love, from the Weird things and Johnny Moped.
Chrissy attended the Press screening at Channel 4 HQ in London for the Documentary ‘Safe at last’ aired on the 26th February which was filmed inside a local Womens Refuge, which Chrissy also visited.
Listen again, if you missed it, to Sue Tapper, Domestic Abuse Advocate from RBWA, chat about the Documentary, and the constant battle for funding which the Refuge faces.

Chrissy Muir caught up with local Lingfield Racecourse member, Ian Byford today to talk about the current state of affairs in the Horse Racing world which is greatly affected by the ban on racing at the present time.
**UPDATE 11th Feb 2019**
Since this story was published, there has been a late evening development.
The BHA have announced a managed return to racing imposing strict bio security measures. The decision to resume racing was taken in a “controlled, risk-managed manner” and supported by an industry veterinary committee said the British Horseracing Authority.
