A sign of the times

September 12th, 2019 · No Comments · Technology

I saw one of these in a car the other day… On the one hand its a clever way to mount a phone in your car, using the now-redundant CD slot to hold it. on the other hand it just makes me feel old. It only seems like yesterday that CDs were the future and […]

Desert Island Stuff

August 11th, 2019 · Comments Off on Desert Island Stuff · Life

I have spent an inappropriate amount of time thinking about this. The more trivial something is, the more thought I give it for some reason. I have bought houses and cars almost on a whim, but spent months comparing specs before buying my first DVD player and MP3 player. In the old days I could […]

Goodbye 70s

May 28th, 2018 · Comments Off on Goodbye 70s · Music

Its a sad week this week, because Absolute Radio 70’s has stopped broadcasting on DAB. Sad because that has been my go-to station for playing music to fall asleep to on the bedside DAB radio. It is a well-established fact (in my mind) that the 70’s were when music was at its peak and everything […]

Radio 6 Music

August 21st, 2017 · 2 Comments · Music

I tend to leave my car radio and bedside radio tuned to Absolute Radio 70s, but Radio 6 Music was the real reason I wanted to have DAB available to me. Well, that and Planet Rock. The main reason why I do not have R6M on when I want to sleep is also the reason […]

2013 FTW

December 31st, 2013 · Comments Off on 2013 FTW · Life, Music

The obligatory self-indulgent look back at the year. With 2014 just around the corner, I look back at 2013 and have to say that I have really enjoyed it. It has certainly been eventful. In fact I reckon this was the most eventful year for us since 2010 when we Rojo got run over, Diego […]

A pedant writes

September 19th, 2013 · Comments Off on A pedant writes · Music

Tonight I was listening, as I often do, to an internet radio station called ‘Made in 80’s Radio’. I do this when I want something in the background that is mostly familiar. There is plenty to not like about it. It is one of those dreadful channels with no presenters: just music chosen by computer […]

On my radio

January 15th, 2013 · Comments Off on On my radio · Music

For all the hype and fuss about downloads and streaming, and with HMV just calling in the receivers it feels a whole lot like the future where we put aside all the old ways of discovering, listening to, and buying music. And yet the radio still has its place doesn’t it? I listening to the […]

The Man Machine speaks

February 4th, 2012 · Comments Off on The Man Machine speaks · Music

Right now I am listening to an interview from 2003 on the BBC iPlayer – an interview with Ralf Hutter of Kraftwerk. Really. Somebody from the band that famously don’t do interviews and don’t even have a telephone in their studio, doing an interview on the BBC. It is all part of 6 Music’s Kraftwerk […]

Desert island Danny

August 1st, 2011 · Comments Off on Desert island Danny · Life

I don’t normally listen to Desert Island Discs.  Or to put it another way, I have never listened to Desert Island Discs as far as I know.  I hardly ever listen to Radio 4 at all, the last time was probably when they had a Kraftwerk documentary a couple of years ago. Today Danny Baker […]

The road to Wembley

January 10th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Life

Crawley Town’s FA Cup road might not go all the way to Wembley, but tonight they discovered that it will at least go as far as Torquay.   It would have been good to get a ‘glamour’ tie against Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal or someone like that (but please not West Ham!)  but on the other […]
