Show Notes Chapter Markers

My guest in this episode is Claire Sanderson who was introduced to the show by an early guest and now a dear friend, Ian Braisby. 

Claire was born and grew up in Cornwall with her parents and two elder brothers. She describes her childhood as being ‘surrounded by all types of music’ and that breadth is reflected in her song choices and the much longer list she sent to me. Her song choices are: 

80’s      I Should Be So Lucky                                                             Kylie Minogue 

90’s      I’ll Do Anything For Love (But I Wont Do That)    Meat Loaf

00’s      Song For The Road                                                                 David Ford

10’s      F**kin’ Perfect                                                                           Pink

20’s      I’ll See You In My Dreams                                                   Bruce Springsteen 


At 18 Claire moved to Cardiff to study Music at the University and has had the good sense to stay in the city ever since. By day she is a Civil Servant, but flexible working enables her to follow her passion for music as a serious amateur musician who plays in an orchestra and sings in a choir. She also recently started doing on-line talks about music which you can find at

Music has been a constant in Claire’s life, and it has provided both comfort and joy. But she also talks very openly about the challenges she faced in studying and playing at the highest level and there are great lessons for all of us in that story. 

A recent convert to the delights of Bruce Frederick Springsteen the episode closes with a poignant song choice from his most recent album ‘Letter To You’ and a Music Talks first where we play two versions of the same song ! 

Enjoy 😊
