Nobody laughed in my face last month when I ‘produced’ the first edition of Radio 236. So I thought I’d give it another go.

Once again it’s all music and no talking.  A little bit longer this time but still five minutes under the hour. It’s still a bit rough in terms of volume control but I’m getting there!

I genuinely had no intention of blogging on 1 January 2016. But things changed as a result of my investing in a new laptop to replace what had been a faithful 10-year old PC that was no longer fit for purpose. The old PC wasn’t great at doing anything beyond the most basic of operations and things I wanted to bring to the blog were proving beyond it.

Radio 236 (named after the number of the house I live in) is launching today. It’s basically a podcast without words and as I learn how to do things better with the new programmes available to me then it will improve. Episode 1 contains 14 songs in just under 53 minutes.
