We Went To “Our Gate”

We went to the immersive theatre adventure called Our Gate tonight. I hope to give my knuckle-dragger’s opinion on the matter, but there is a back-story. As part of the local radio, we have been broadcasting the prodigal Jack Sinclair and the Our Gate podcast. I can now spoil the ruse in that the Podcast was the introduction to the theatre performance; the podcast was like watching the Extras in a DVD before you watch…

Mowbray House

I have been awake a few nights, now; my feet are swelling up and they are quite painful. Not much sleep is being achieved. But, this does afford other opportunities; I managed to watch the sun rise whilst listening to a great compilation called “Summer Is Icumen In: The Pagan Sound Of British & Irish Folk, 1966-75“. The front cover is great! Thanks to Mrs Moons from the local radio for that tip off I…

Well, I Failed The #365BlogChallenge

Well I have failed the challenge I set myself last December – I had hoped to Blog everyday through 2021 but I could not find the time to research, write up and publish the posts. I could not Blog everyday. #365BlogChallenge is over for this year but never say never on a fresh attempt… Why did I fail? I set out to improve my situation through blogging – I thought that the act of living…

Weird Wins: Series One

I have started a new podcast series called Weird Wins. I get to speak to inspirational people about their driving passion. The things that makes them tick.

How he is running Creao Studio and how he has played across countless stages. You can listen to that here: I also…

Roots Conversation Reaches Episode #100!

I have been a part of Roots Conversation – the roots reggae podcast for a good few years now. We reached Episode #100 tonight. I am currently sat in Creao Studio listening to Scooby and Allan record their show – their show is turning in to a bit of a car crash, really. But, Roots Conversation has reached Episode #100 and I am more than happy with the progress it is making. I hope we…

#GoTeam

There was an admin meeting for the station tonight. It was the first proper, facilitated meeting I have attended. Karen led it and she. Knows her onions. We covered a lot of ground and we have agreed to try and lessen my load. I have a great team of people supporting me and they are the people keeping me going, along with my family and Kathryn.

Rumblings Of A ‘Cast

Not as a way to make big money (blogging didn’t do that either). But as a way to share your ideas, to lead your community, to earn trust. Podcasting is a proven technology that is still in its infancy. It’s an open mic, a chance for people with something to say to find a few people (or perhaps more than a few people) who’d like to hear them say it. And podcasting is the generous…

Wood

Tell me when you’re going to finish. Tell me if you fall behind. Don’t make me ask. It’s difficult for a small organisation or a dedicated craftsperson to run an operation as punctually as a large bureaucracy. After all, the bureaucracy exists mainly to be sure that deadlines are honoured and variances are not exceeded. Your customers are aware of this. It’s one reason that they chose you–because you’re doing the work yourself, you’re a…
