Welcome to my website...Summer 2014 Demo
21st October 2014
My latest radio presenting demo from Summer 2014.
Atmospheric songs and The Big Brother Apprentice
19th October 2014
After my outing on Drivetime last week, I’m back in my normal slot this week. It was much like a prisoner being let out to go and work in the kitchen. I know it’s been very off-and-on so will be good to be back at 2pm.
On the show – what’s your favourite song that you think has an “atmospheric” feel to it? Request it in the comments section below and I shall play it on the show on Monday. Here’s one of my favourites:
Also on the show, with The Apprentice back on TV, my idea to merge Big Brother and The Apprentice to form the spin-off, The Big Brother Apprentice!
I’ll also tell the story of the man who woke up after an operation wearing PINK KNICKERS! He’s suing the hospital and you’ll love the lawsuit. And the story of Nigel the Parrot who returned home after 4 years speaking Spanish!
When? Monday 1400-1500
Where? Future Radio 107.8
How to listen: Pick it up on an FM radio if you’re in Norwich by tuning to 107.8. You can also listen online here.
11th October 2014
Instead of my ‘normal’* show (Monday 2-3pm), for this Monday (13th October) I’m covering Drivetime between 4 pm and 6.30 pm. All from someone who, despite owing a car, doesn’t have a driving license. I know. I can’t drive and I’m presenting Drivetime. HOW DARE I! Anyway…
I have a competition (I might even have some prizes too!) called Key Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes; I’ll be asking you to guess the artist and title of a song that has a key change in from a clip that I’ll play on the show.
I’ll be playing your suggestions for songs that don’t have the title in the lyrics after 6pm. There’s more than you think. If you have one, why not leave a reply to this blog post?
Plus, I’ll be interview Nick Bond, Head of Tourism for Visit Norwich, about ‘All hail the ale’ week. It’s part of their ‘city of stories’ campaign. This interview may contain information about potential ale tasting, if you’re into ale…
You can listen online or, if you’re in Narrrrwwwich, on 107.8 fm. That’s from 4pm this coming Monday…
Over and out,
* the inverted commas are because, if you’ve ever head my usual show, normal is definitely not how anyone would describe it
Mixing desk and microphone for sale
9th October 2014
Calling all audio people! I am selling a small mixing desk and a microphone on ebay because I no longer need it after buying a USB microphone.

It is used but overall in good condition, however it is quite sensitive to background noise. Frequency Response: 30Hz – 20kHz. Polar pattern: Cardioid. Power Requirements: Phantom Power 48V (+- 4V). Size: 55mm x 190 mm/1.85 in. x 7.48 in.

Peak LEDs. Mute, Solo and PFL function on all channels. Master aux sends with Gain control. Overall, it is used but in good condition; there are a few minor scratches and it is slightly dusty.
