About the show
Wandering into the mists of time on, this week on The Word we explore the mystical landscape of story and rhyme. Terrie Howey, aka Red Phoenix, has 450 stories living in her memory and appears to be in charge of them all! Richard Frost, one-time Bard of Stony Stratford has 450 paragraphs waiting in line for delivery but has to write down the shopping list! We talk tall tales, Iron Age hill forts, Anglo-Saxon riddles, commissioned poetry and the joys of sharing a mic, with your host Peter Ball!
