Sonia Aste is a Spaniard living in the UK who believes ‘Cultural differences are like sangria – a happy mix that sometimes leaves a headache’.
With Spain being one of the top destination for British tourists, this hour shines a light into what it means to be ‘Made in Spain’.
Using fans, football, folklore and family, this is an uplifting, hilarious show about British/Spanish connections. More importantly, it’s about how we’re all connected through life, love and laughter.
If you’ve been to Spain (or have yet to go) don’t miss this “sunny” and very funny journey. Foot stomping laughter! Olé!

African in New York – Almost Famous by Njambi McGrath ( 60 minute show)
Njambi McGrath has been tipped as the hottest thing to come out of the Africa since the Sahara.
Within 14 months of starting comedy, she was voted 1 of the top 5 Female comedians by the Sun’s Fabulous magazine.
She was nominated the best Female New comer at the Black comedy Awards. She has been on Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4Xtra.
When the naive straight-out-of-Africa student Njambi McGrath was invited to a Thanksgiving meal by her new college friend, she could hardly have known that some areas in America are a no-go for black people. There is a reason why the Green travel guide was published from 1936 to warn black people of areas where they are likely to be in danger. Like all teens are told endlessly, the world is your oyster, but they also say life is the university of hard knocks for a reason.
