"I love it at Hope, I'm learning so much from everyone I've met so far, only online or phone call too. It really is hard to believe all Peni Whelan, Brum Community Media and Hope Radio have accomplished in a year, I mean the VR Room launching (or launched ***please edit accordingly***). I really enjoy being able to connect with music and with our listeners each week and share great new music...I also love how interactive and eclectic our show has become."
