About Me

I’m a young man in his sixties – if all goes well, I will remain thus for a good few years.

There are certain subjects about which I can be knowledgeable and opinionated – classical music, for one; cricket, for another. If I can be neither knowledgeable nor opinionated, I tend to remain silent.

Over past years, I have discovered that I veer from one extreme (EVERYONE wants to know what I’m doing/thinking) to the other (NO-ONE wants to know anything about me). In fact, I spend much more time in the latter state than the former, which does not make me a very successful blogger – postings will be few and far between. Still, if you gain any value from what you find here, I will be humbly thankful.

    I notice you have a huge Radio Archive listing which I’m hoping represents a collection you have. I’d very much like to get hold of a copy of “Black Beauty” which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 as a full-cast dramatisation and which, sadly, I’ve managed to loose. Regards, Simon. dakin80@gmail.com

    By curious coincidence one of my best friends from Australia is a retired timpanist from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

    Just another question about your fantastic Radio Archive, I’m afraid. I have a similar, much smaller one myself (would be happy to share the files with you, if you’re interested), and I noticed that you have episode 2 of Elidor, which I am missing. Could you let me know if you’re willing to share this file?

    Hi, I couldn’t find a way to e-mail you about your radio archive so I’m leaving a message here, cluttering up your comments section. I’d be very grateful to get a copy of Mark Steel – Who Do I Think I Am, if possible.
    Thanks,
    Gareth
