Today marks 15 years of the Quiet Revolution. Whoever thought it would last that long! Certainly not me.
To quote Bob Dylan, “I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now”. Erm, well maybe not….. As the photos from then and now, below, attest.
We’ve had two studio bases during this period. The first in the then South Leicestershire College on the Rockingham Road trading estate. It was a decent but rather compact and bijou radio studio. I recall a fine and sadly now defunct Staffordshire band called The Queensberry Rules coming into play live and they were a 3 piece including a double bass. I don’t think I could move my chair we were so crammed in! But great fun and a superb session.
We then moved to our current site in Fernie Road. The studio is very nice and undoubtedly more roomy! Many great sessions have taken place over the years. Check out my MixCloud page to investigate lots of them.
I bought a CD box at, if I remember correctly, the Bridport Music Centre in Dorset whilst on holiday, back in around 2001 and it’s still serving me well now!
First record I played. Well, I’ve posted about this before, but it was an easy choice. Steve Earle’s The Revolution Starts Now.
I’ve enjoyed it all enormously and I’m pretty sure that comes across on air. Thanks for being on the journey with me, whenever you’ve joined the Revolution!
