2524. Fitness talkback

Well, Listeners, today’s talkback show is to do with staying healthy and fit. Our guest is the embodiment of fitness and health without going over the top. We’ll talk about how simple actions that we do in daily life can enhance ones health. It doesn’t have to be much to be effective.

We are awaiting the arrival of Autumn. I don’t mean the season although there’s that too! No, we await the arrival of Autumn Wasiukieivicz, today’s guest.

I don’t want to cover too many of the everyday hints that Autumn will reflect upon, but to give an example. If you’re right-handed always open the door with your left hand, and vice versa. It strengthens a limb that is not used as much as the other and it heightens co-ordination. I know that it is a practice sometimes suggested by drum teachers to enhance a student’s ability to use both arms.

There are many other little things such as this which Autumn will tell you about, and before you know it you’ll be as fit as a fiddle without having to don sweaty clothing. Of course, Autumn is a wonder. She is at the peak of condition. She also represented her region in the annual National Acrobatics Festival.

Taking health and fitness seriously can prolong your life no end, and makes for a happier more content life…

We’ve just received a message that Autumn cannot make it. Apparently she is at the hospital. She was reaching for the door handle with her left hand when someone coming the other way opened the door and knocked her out flat.

1488. Churchill’s radio broadcasts

He always listened to Sir Winston Churchill making speeches on the radio. This was during the Second World War of course. He would spend almost an hour before the broadcast began tuning the radio exactly so he could hear Churchill loud and clear. Not a word was to be missed.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills…

God help anyone who as much as muttered or coughed during the broadcast. He was fixated.

Once Churchill’s speech had finished it was always the same; Eva Braun would say, “Hurry along now, Adolf darling. Dinner’s ready.”
