BBC Radio host Alex Dyke spoke to 95-year-old listener Bill, who was missing his wife after she had fell last year and was placed in assisted living.
In the Facebook video below, you learn that Bill and his wife, who had known each other for more than 30 years, just recently got married. However, when his wife hurt herself, she had to go to a nursing home which left Bill with no one to talk to.

The folks at BBC Radio Solent knew Bill was lonely and upset and called him a cab and invited him into the studio with them. Broadcast assistant Chris Hitchings told BuzzFeed that he just didn't think he had anyone else to talk to, "He's such a nice guy and was lovely."
Here's to hoping Bill gets even more air time!
