Vlog 265: Easy Listening

My first broadcasting love was (and still is) radio, long before I got sidetracked into TV or YouTube. These days, anyone can become an audio broadcaster via podcasting, and my interviewee in this video has done just that, telling tales about his life on a narrowboat on the UK canals.

    Blooming marvelous David!!! Now NB 506812 is my top of the radio stations to listen to. Far, far better than the rubbish broadcast today by ‘main stream’ stations.
    So relaxing just listening to this gentleman’s voice, could easily send you to sleep! Radio Luxenberg? That brought memories back. Listening to the charts on a Sunday night under the sheets during the 1950’s as a teenager.
    Nice one!

  2. More excellent entertainment, thank you David.

    OK . . . this was unexpected and quite interesting, partially because I totally fit in to the Nerd category. I got into my own world of radio when I was 14 in 1973, spending up to six hours a day on my Johnson “White Face” vacuum tube CB radio. Now this was four years before the movie Smokey and the Bandit popularized CB radio to the world. I should mention . . . whenever I keyed my microphone to transmit, one of the vacuum tubes would glow purple, an electrical phenomenon one could spy through the pierced steel cabinet of the radio. I also had a spare set of crystal socket wired to the top of the radio, which allowed me to illegally plug in mismatched crystals creating a myriad of illegal stealth frequencies my buddies and I could “QSY” over to. Later in life, around the late nineties, I got in Amateur Radio popularly known as Ham Radio and have talked with Operators all over the world, I’ve even worked Airline Pilots operating out of their cockpits in flight ! So . . . you could say . . . I’ve been bitten by the radio bug David. I will definitely check out this gentleman’s podcast and I thank you so much for sharing it. I’m especially impressed and encouraged to know, he is making a difference in this world by providing soothing entertainment for those in need. Thanks David !

    • The video seems to have struck a chord with both Ham and pirate radio enthusiasts, which I’m pleased about.
