09 May 16: Isy Suttie's Love Letters (Series 2, Ep1)

May 9th, 2016

Episode 79 of 105 episodes

Isy Suttie returns to BBC Radio 4 with a brand new series of her Sony Award Winning show, recounting a series of love stories affecting people she's known throughout her life, told partly through song. Sometimes Isy has merely observed other people's love lives; quite often she's intervened, changing the action dramatically - for better or worse. Intertwined within these stories are related real life anecdotes from Isy's own, often disastrous, love life. In this episode, Isy returns to her home town of Matlock and observes the unfolding romance between Eleanor, a dinner lady, and Mr Woodfield, a teacher - both of whom are unhappily married, but find solace in their workplace friendship. With her multi-character and vocal skills, and accompanied by her guitar, Isy creates a hilarious and deeply moving world, sharing with us her lessons in life and love. "A voice you want to swim in" The Independent Produced by Lyndsay Fenner
