Hello dear listener.  Another edition of ‘Sunday Delight’ takes to the airwaves with an eclectic mix of fine tunes for your pleasure, and where I am also chatting with Lovejoy actor Chris Jury, who talks of his time with the series playing the character Eric Catchpole, and also about what he’s been doing more recently in the world of TV.
