The Adventure continues – Radio Land Part 2

I’m trying to rotate the content of the blog posts are on this page. Recently we have had some related to gaming and some personal ones so I thought it was probably time to write about the continuing adventure into Radio Land. This also coincides with the webpage for Wilson Waffling Radio coming into existence so it somehow seemed appropriate. So headphones on, finger on that mic button counting down to the end of the song…3….2….1…..

Things I never look cool doing…

The weather has been good the last few days here in the north of England and people are slowly to remove their winter woolies and don sunglasses, vest tops and shorts. As you will be aware, I’m not a great fan of the summer (reasons given here) and although people are in favour of the warmer weather, I still looking forward to October when the darker nights and windy wet weather returns. As I walk home from work every night, I switch to what I call the summer route. This is a route, mainly consisting of different sides of the roads, which provides me with the maximum amount of shade in a vain attempt to keep cool. It is while I was walking home that I started to realise that there were certain things that I am not able to do and will never be able to do.

Blast from the Past – Milk Tray Advert

If you listen to my radio station – and if you don’t you better have a good excuse! – then you will have listened to some of my jingles. My inspiration for these jingles come from a variety of places, but one of them was an advert which I remember from growing up. Dressed completely in black, diving off high cliffs and battling dangerous sharks the guy still delivers the lady a lovely box of chocolate, leaving before she returns with only his calling card as evidence that he was ever there…why you ask yourself – well its all because the lady loves…

Servers are UP!!!! – well most are

Servers are UP!!!! – well most are

Are you a bit of a Minecraft player? Well, I’ve set up my own servers and, although the Survival world has been going for some time, the community has sadly been sucked into another dimension leaving the world a bit like the Mary Celeste. In order to show you what is on offer, I thought I would make a quick video so you can start to think of joining…or maybe becoming a founding member of the new community. There is website where you can join, and I’ll be streaming some content online on Twitch shortly. If you like what you see then please get in touch – only want kind, considerate players – I hear so many horror stories of servers being wrecked – are they all true?

Adventures in Radio Land – Part 1

I often feel that I was born like thirty years too early! When I look at the technology available now and the possible opportunities I often do wonder what I would be doing if I was thirty years younger! People will always say that it is never too late to do anything in life and I try to live to this aspiration, engaging in what I would like to do rather than, at my age, what I feel society feels I should be doing. I don’t know whether it is something about being a teacher/tutor, but I do like to present and it was always a dream of mine to have a successful radio station. Well, I didn’t have the time or the money, so what did I do – you guessed it – started my own radio station…and this is the story so far…
