Upbeat is a brand new show on BBC Cov & Warks hosted by the lovely Sandra Godley.
Chain Reaction is a weekly feature on the Upbeat show that challenges the people of Coventry to find creative ways to show some kindness, I was kindly asked to kick off their first chain reaction on last week’s show.
If you want to hear me talk about Feel Good, find out about the challenge Sandra gave me, how I challenged her and who I nominated for the next Chain Reaction, it is around the 50-minute mark. The rest of the show was pretty awesome as they were talking about happiness and the taboo subject of men and depression, they also play an array of amazing Upbeat tunes as well – definitely one to listen to!
The other Mel
Last night was the second show, we spoke about the challenges we set each other and my sis, the other Mel Smith, spoke about why she started the Swim & Tonic movement and why cake is so important! Mel nominated the next person in the Chain Reaction – our amazing friend Josie. If you want to hear what we said tune in around the 50-minute mark .

We also have an amazing Feel Good Ambassadors Facebook group – which was created so we could have a space to help everyone connect and feel stronger together whatever life throws at us.
Next Wednesday Mel will be talking on the show with Josie. Tune in from 7pm to find out how Mel’s challenge went and to listen to the all the inspiring stories and upbeat music that will fill the airwaves.
