There was no virtual studio this week – but thanks to Kate Gordon for her contributions to this show. This included a summary of some of th extensive feedback we have received on the "Shed Happens" show so far - Thanks Kate !

Thanks also to Tech Shedder and Frome FM volunteer - PJ - For his contributions on 3d Printing Face Masks (An interview with James Allen of Trackhat and the 3D Crowd), and also PJ's guide to effective video conferencing - Thanks PJ !

We also hear an inspirational interview from two Shedders from the Sheddington Shed (In Teddington) Chris Manning and Peter Brown.

The show  includes some extracts from earlier “Shed Happens” shows – called “Making Tracks” from Frome Shedders Berne Sawle, Stewart Male, Dan Gmaj and Patrick Abrahams

“Making Tracks”, is a piece of music that Shedders associate with a really tough project. This is inspired by Radio 4’s “Saturday Live’s”  Inheritance Tracks – Where they celebrate music that guests cherish and would like to bestow on future generations.  The Shedders story of their project is spoken ‘over’ their selected track by the Shedder.
