A Suffolk band has received a huge boost to their music careers thanks to a renowned BBC Radio 2 music show.

The four piece band Walkway from Redgrave near Diss secured an exclusive slot on BBC Radio 2's Dermot O'Leary's afternoon show on Saturday.

The band is made up of brothers Chris and James Ready, of Redgrave, Alex Rosedale, also of Redgrave, and newest member Joe Evans from Lincolnshire. Proud father Michael Ready spoke to Dermot O'Leary about the band and listeners got to hear songs from their album Streetwise.

Mr Ready, father of Chris and James, said: 'I proud to have represented the band on Dermot's show in the proud parent slot.

'The band is moving forward in the music industry very quickly and although it is exhausting, it is very exiting.
