Bill celebrates WWII sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn, as she approaches her 102nd Birthday.

The marvellous Forces Sweetheart of World War 2 Dame Vera Lynn, is on the threshold of her 102nd birthday and we celebrate it on Harmony Night this Sunday with a thread of her songs throughout the programme - requested by you. And there's always a surprise somewhere in the programme. Thanks to May of East Hendred, last week it was a song called “I've never wronged an onion so why would they make me cry”! This week, songs from the Maurice Winnick Orchestra, Adele, Lonnie Donegan, Engelbert Humperdinck, Matt Monro, The Four Aces and Marianne Faithful.
