The North Oxford Patio

North Ox Patio

Saturdays 14:00 - 15:00

Hoorah you cry! Kate is back in the studio & is now storming Oxford with her brand spanking new podcast 'The North Oxford Patio’ (suspiciously reminiscent of her dog-old show The North London Patio - but London was so last year & who even listened to that anyway?)

From the girl who interviewed the national treasure that is David Attenborough comes a series of shows that will never, ever ( no really - ever) live up to that magical day. Nevertheless there’ll be me aspiring to be a top-notch Conservation legend, chat, tunes and fantastic guests (still got Davy A on my phone contacts – could he make a thrilling second appearance in my life? Only one way to find out) – tune innnnnnnn.

Head ova 2 ma Spotify if you want to make my fave songs the soundtrack to your life - 'Kate Balding' -
