Brotherly Best Bits makes Thursday's show special

During a chat about ambulance response times, Phillip was joined at the last minute on the phone by his brother Tim to explain how the emergency services helped to save Tim’s life last year.

Tim said, “They were absolutely amazing… absolutely fantastic, I cannot fault them. The support I have had has been unbelievable. Even the paramedics visited me when I was in hospital to say ‘this is what we did', and asked how I was doing. They have been absolutely phenomenal.”

How can that NOT be Thursday's Best Bits?
