Shed Happens 2 - Part 2     

In this show we featured some great Sheds from Islands round the UK - This was on the basis that Island based Sheds are probably better at dealing with isolation than the rest of us, and what lessons can we learn from them ? We hear from Sheds from Guernsey, the Isle of Wight and Shetland.

We have some music features that have been sent to us  - A Shed "Rap" from Dunoon, and also music from Sheddit in Cambridge.
