    Hundreds of people turned out on the streets of Hay-on-Wye to celebrate the success of Paralympic champion Josie Pearson.

    Josie now has her own stamp and gold-painted post box in the town after clinching the discus title - breaking her own world record three times in the process.

    With so much buzz around the area right now, we thought it was only right we should take our next BBC Introducing roadshow there - so that's exactly what we did!

    The Globe at Hay is a converted chapel and has been playing host to many major events - like the HowTheLightGetsIn festival - and parts of the literary festival, too.

    On the bill included the following artist - Heidi Nicola, from Hereford.

    We started playing her music on the show just a couple of months ago and the song that we played on the radio was written by local producer Marcus Burton - who claimed this was song #42 out of his repertoire of 493 songs!

    She's been working with Nick Fisher, who's a local piano, keyboard and organ tutor - plus spent eight years training as a classical musician at Hereford Cathedral School.

    BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester supports unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar musicians from Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

    Our next recording session takes place on Sunday 2 December at Lizzie's Boathouse in Upton-upon-Severn and features all of the musicians we plan to broadcast over Christmas.

    It's a unique opportunity to see one of our BBC Introducing roadshows and how we capture live music on tape.

    It's free to get in - simply turn up anytime from 2.30pm - the recording will finish around 7pm.

    In September, BBC Introducing teams from across the country were asked to submit tracks and artists that they felt were suitable for Annie Nightingale's BBC Radio 1 show. It was a chance to show Annie and her team the vast array of talent that uses the BBC Introducing Uploader and for Annie to pass on her advice and wealth of experience in the industry.

    When it started, we thought Annie would choose one artist - in the end she picked three; rapper English from London, DJ and Producer Elliot Berger from Kent and Hereford and Worcester's Kamos, who regularly works with rapper Tripbuk.

    A couple of weeks ago, the artists visited Annie at BBC Radio 1.

    A Worcester band are continuing their surreal take on the advent calendar - by filming a comedy sketch for every day leading up to Christmas.

    It's the second year in a row Calm Like A Riot have undertaken such a venture.

    They're filming with us here at BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester tonight - and we were the very people who described them as South Worcester's fourth best indie hip hop outfit 2008 - the very accolade that leads you into their rather swanky website.
