I went to start to be trained up at York Hospital Radio last night and it went really well. I was shown around the studio and library and then got a chance use the equipment that I will broadcast with, when the time comes. So I know now how to use a gramophone, a CD player, a TV, a radio and a microphone on a show.
It felt odd to be using such archaic tech. I mean, I haven’t played vinyl for 20 years since my deck broke, and although I have many hundreds of records in the attic, they are doing nothing but gathering dust. Similarly with the CDs. It’s all digital these days. Anyway, I don’t suppose I’ll be using this old gear in anger much. Hopefully there’s a computer somewhere with some songs loaded onto it.
Anyway, gotta go – the missus is here saying something or other. Laters.
