More nothing

So I’ve not been doing much again today. Mainly I just copied some old shows from my first RSL in 2005 and the Spark radio shows into the radioshock media vaults (From CD) Just to make sure they are safe and so they are easier to find. I need to go through the Tone shows I’ve not edited as well, and i need to get the In the dark shows in there too… Sorry type-thinking out loud.

Many people have texted me and facebooked me today. I don’t mind talking to people but sometimes when i get lots i just ignore most people. I don’t like that much attention from so many people.

As far as me, I’ve been OK recently. its probably because I’ve been cooped away indoors and nothings been able to get to me the last few days. I really enjoyed Sunday and the whole day with the amazing end to it. Then I had a lovely sleep last night but i had this weird conversation with Rich over Facebook in the morning, i cant really remember what it was about. I sometimes get easily knocked and a bit down about stuff and sometimes its something little that doesnt matter, which im not sure why.

I had a blood testy thing the other day. Making sure i’m human or not got aids or rabies… oh and anemia and diabeties but those don’t sound exciting. The doctor said that if anything bad comes up then i’d have been phoned. I’d like to know what blood type i am so if a vampire comes over i can explain that my blood might be a bit rubbish.

So yeah, all I’ve done today is mess about with audio and listen to the Ray Peacock Podcast which even though is rather old, still funny. Tone Radio meeting tomorrow.

And just before i go… the aim of this blog is to atleast write something every day. It don’t matter if its after midnight. the chances are the day befores over covers it so uhh… yeah 🙂


Walcot FM & No Repeat Work Days

I’ve noticed that one of Community Radio Swindon’s nickname is becoming more known than the actuall name.

Back then during the trial broadcast in 2005 we were SCB or SCRB. It had some silly names like SCAB because apperently the R looked like an A on the website so that was dropped. Scab Radio was mostly given to us by presenters from other stations.

We also got the nameWalcot FM… The name a couple of us were saying as a joke in 2005 during the trial in 2005. We got it off a few confussed people who didnt know who we were, but knew we were broadcasting from The Bulldog Pub in Walcot.

Caroline went was speaking to somebody the other day who called us “Walcot FM” and i’ve spoken to about 5 other people since i’ve been back who had listened to a bit of us on “Walcot FM” asking when we were coming back.

Well for “Walcot FM” or “Community radio Swindon” I’m expecting to hear any day now about this licence business!!!


i was listening to Brunel FM lately and although they have this no repeat weekday thing where they only play a song once for the whole day. Thats ok… Untill you hear it the next day, and the day after, and the day after which makes it just as annoying because it makes each day seem as boring as the last one. And it’s all the same sort of music. Nothing Special, I’ve heard Sugababes, Ronan keating, Lighthouse Family and so on, same old Radio Rubish.
