However, since the coronavirus outbreak and being stuck at home, Barry has been writing short, informative jingles about the effects of the disease and solutions to beating it.

“My eight jingles are being played out everyday at BBC Radio Bristol/Somerset and a further seven national BBC stations,” says Barry. “Also, as far afield as Australia, America and Europe.

“My jingles are a lighthearted yet serious public service, informing listeners to what they should be doing in these troubled times.”
