Listen in at Ragamuffin Central

"When Christmas meant Christmas and not a pathetic four nights in Lanzarote . . ." In the bus kiosk at Yarmouth we meet migrant songwriter and seaside poet Keith Gore. Keith runs the open top buses from Yarmouth to the most western point of the Island at the Needle's.

Ragamuffin Ramblers Brian and Mike and his son Robert visit the Isle of Wight.

Crossing the bar like Tennyson they sail from the mainland port of Lymington to land at Yarmouth.
