/ Yesterday Once More / Music / National Volunteer Week


This week we pay tribute to some of the wonderful volunteers who make JOY the great radio station it is today. We have interviewed twelve volunteers who have had links with ‘Yesterday Once More’ over the almost eight years we have been on air. A couple of worthy mentions are Anne, a stalwart of JOY for eighteen years with her heartfelt song choice featuring that rare combination of Roy Orbison and k.d.lang (Crying). Clayton who has kept us on air throughout the pandemic (Look What They’ve Done To My Song Ma) and our wonderful podcaster Julia, (I Have A Dream). Lastly, our reliable and skilled Office Admin support, Corey, who has assisted us for many years (Swingin’ On A Star). This is not to leave out the other volunteers in this program who have been staunch supporters of our program.
