Nathan Emmanuel, Musician & Journalist

Initially, that was through university. In my final year, I had to make either a presentation or a mini documentary piece. Now, me being me, living outside the box, I didn’t just want to make that regular documentary-style kind of thing, and talk about my so-called financial issues during university. I wanted to make it different; I wanted to put it in a narrative form that people are more likely to connect with and engage with. Something different that catches their eye a bit more, and that’s what really inspired the rapumentary style…

Joe Quinlan & Kalem Brinkworth, Founders: The Bonbon Boys

The Bonbon Boys was founded by Joe Quinlan (left) and Kalem Brinkworth (right).

Kalem and I have known each other for eight years, and we’ve always wanted to do a business together. We have worked with each other in the past, so we know what one another’s styles are like. But it took us a while to figure out exactly what we wanted to do and what the product was. And so, during lockdown there was a lack of pick-and-mix — for two people who love sweets, that’s not very good…

Zoltan Torre, Musician

Zoltan Torre, or just "zoltan." is a musician and singer based in Bournemouth

I always say that nothing particular inspired me to write this song. I just wanted to make something fun that gets you moving. I found the guitar loop that you can hear at the start of the song, and me and my friend Jake immediately started working on it. Even what I talk about in the song doesn’t really relate to me. I imagine it to be about a night out, meeting someone and having that tension between the two, all just happening on that night only; maybe becoming a one-night stand…

However, today, the musician and filmmaker revealed that the rap segment would be played on not only BBC Radio London at 10:30am on Wednesday 17th June, but also on BBC Radio Solent between 12 and 1pm that same day.

Laura Hardwick, Baker

Laura Hardwick is a baker; the brains behind Crafty Cow Cupcakes

Even though cupcakes are my biggest stressor (because I always worry they’re not perfect), I love the satisfaction of seeing a box of cakes ready to leave. I love making customers’ ideas come alive in cake form. I wouldn’t say I have a ‘favourite’, but I think my Coffee and Walnut cakes are always a big hit, and I make a mean Lemon Drizzle…!

Josh Tucker, Actor / Musician

Josh Tucker is an actor, musician and director from Poole

I actually had two roles in the first show I ever did – “Bugsy Malone” at the Jellicoe, I played Babyface and Snake Eyes, and I have very fond memories from that show. Particularly my big moment as Babyface, coming out on stage with a baseball bat…
