Nick Ferrari erupts at Sunak warning ‘stop telling me how well you’ve done’ in radio row | Politics | News

The LBC presenter confronted Chancellor Rishi Sunak with a recording of Excluded UK founder Annika Hicks breaking down in tears as she warned how the lack of Government support had been harming her community. Mr Ferrari demanded to know why three million people remain excluded from receiving state support despite Mr Sunak having had over eight months to create the appropriate schemes. The radio host said: “You will have heard of Excluded UK. Nobody expected you to get it right in March. 

“You have been rushed in 1,000 miles an hour. Chancellor, respectfully, you’ve had eight months to redo the sums. Why are three million people still excluded?”

Mr Sunak dismissed claims millions of Britons have yet to receive help, saying: “You said at the beginning of the show that what we’ve spent is essentially more than anyone else has internationally.

“So the scale of the response we’ve put in

Dawson on the radio: Domann’s step forward and talking classroom etiquette and teaching pointers | Football

“These guys are so much bigger and stronger than the guys they played against in high school,” Dawson said. “You’re talking about 22-year-old seniors. You look at a guy like Brenden Jaimes and all of a sudden you put one of those guys out there that’s used to playing against maybe a 185-pound offensive tackle and now he’s going up against a guy like that, you go ‘Whoa, there’s a pretty big difference there.’” 

Even still, Dawson said he likes the progress both of the 6-foot-5 freshmen have made. 

“Blaise and Jimari are both really good guys in the room, both good learners and both guys that are doing a good job of working out with our strength staff,” Dawson said. “At the same time, What’s impressed me about both of those guys is that even though they’re not part of the game plan or playing on a week to

Orchestra to mix old and new in special radio concert | News

“We had thought about digging out something from the archives for this concert, but we decided early on in the process that this community deserves to hear something new,” he said.

To that end, the concert will feature works that the Tulsa Symphony has never before performed and which will represent a mix of the classical and the contemporary.

The modern pieces are both by woman composers: Joan Tower’s “Fanfare to the Uncommon Woman,” No. 5, and “Starburst” by Jessie Montgomery.

Tower’s piece is one in a series of six short compositions she wrote over a period of 30 years as tributes to the adventurous, risk-taking spirit of women. The fifth in the series, written for four trumpets, was composed in 1993 to celebrate the opening of the Aspen Music Festival’s Joan and Irving Harris Concert Hall.

Montgomery is considered one of the music world’s up and coming composers, whose
