Hi all! well its been a very busy past couple of weeks! saturday 21st we were invited to a 40th birthday party with a difference. The theme was Tudor so the birthday boy dressed as Henry VIII and we were his minions! A great evening was had by all! The next day I had to go & do the DWR show. considering the way I felt sunday morning I did surprisingly good as well!

No show over the bank holiday because of myself & Sarah host a BBQ for our families and local friends. But DWR broadcast my debut show so I had the chance to listen in.

A New Project!


Facebook is a great way of networking with like-minded people. I have always been into soul music, I bought my 1st 12" single in 1978 (Evelyn "Champagne" King: Shame) and my collection grew until the mid-80s when a new wife & house curbed my record buying. I didn't resume again until I started Hospital broadcasting. Anyway, I am friends with a couple of DJs from back in the day. One of them asked me if I was interested in a new internet radio station that was being launched. Now a few weeks later & I have a sunday afternoon slot on a great station. http://www.dancewebradio.co.uk/. The first show was last week, and it was brilliant (if I say so myself) at one point the owner (John, a great guy!) came running into the studio with his thumbs up "that tune is brilliant, I must dig it out!" His tea & Vimto is most welcome as well!


I think this station is going places. We have a great line-up of DJs and bags of enthusiasm. All we need now is sponsors!



The next show is sunday 22nd 4pm until 6pm and what I'll do is post the previous weeks playlist for the world to see!
