Well got my first Swindon Advertiser. Still used to calling it Evening Advertiser.
The Paper in Halifax was well too big. it was broad-sheet, so I’m not complaining about it… yet.
When i came back to swindon the first thing was that Farepak went bust. I knew i should of nicked that Hat 4 years ago. Pretty weird tho, it was rather busy when i was there, besides from standing around doing nothing when someone ran out of spam and needed more.
Yesterday was the first time in ages when i sat on the computer (Doing Internet stuff) and listened to a local Radio Station. Tuned into Brunel FM from 10am till about 9pm. Seemed like nothing new and need to think of a better way to sound more exiting. Besides from that it was OK i suppose. I listen to my own play out system for total radio, needs a bit of tweaking still though.
Lower Shaw Farm
Get Rid Of IT???? DON’T BE F***ING STUPID!!!!!
I went to Lower Shaw Farm while recording a one-off show called the Poetry mix for swindon FM, Part of the swindon Litracy festival. It would be a well stupid thing for the council to sell something like Lower Shaw Farm!!! Completely out of order! I know I’m not usually bothered about these things, i must be getting old, but The thought should of never been thought of! They wouldn’t sell the council offices down or the town hall to knock That down for houses would they?! so why do that!!?? Since 1990 till 1997 i lived in Shaw Ridge in swindon. There was a conker tree near there. There was a better one up the road because nobady knew about that one.
Thats all for now Jonkaholics!
