Hello. This is Mick on Radio TopSoup. I started this blog for two reasons. Like many people, I want to write a novel. But there are too many distractions. But I thought, if I get into the habit of writing something, however insignificant, at least most days, then I’ll at least know I have the time.
Each blog post is pretty much what I might talk about with my wife. “Hey, guess what I heard on the radio today”, I might say. Sometimes, alas, her eyes glaze over: well, I shouldn’t expect her to be an enthusiastic, nor as interested, as me, about everything on the old wireless.
So, this is rarely going to be anything too deep, or challenging – and on the whole, I’ll be trying not to be too negative about anything, although the odd rant is bound to occur.
There are plenty of other blogs about radio out there, and I’m sure I’ll find a way to link to them for your convenience.
I listen to as much radio as I can, while it’s being broadcast. But mny of the shows I enjoy are on at daft times of the day. When I say ‘daft’, of course what I mean is, they don’t suit my current lifestyle. I get up at 5am for work and I’m usually in bed by 9pm. So a lot of what I listen to is recorded.
And, best of all, as I work outdoors (I’m a postman, if you’re wondering), I can listen at work.
While much of what I write is about programmes that have been broadcast already, I will try and preview some future delights.
Let me know if you have any questions. There’s probably a ‘Contact Me’ button somewhere. I’ll leave finding it as an exercise for the reader.
And if you have done, thank you for bearing with me this far!
