RAY’S RANTS INTERVIEWS

There’s only one interview so far but, hopefully, many more will follow. It’s not easy to get people to chat in front of a microphone!

Nurse Diane Interview:

In this episode, I welcome Diane, my sister-in-law, into the studio. She’s a retired nurse and she chats about her days working in hospitals and a GP’s surgery. The operating theatre, the wards, the matron, a nursing school, sticking needles in people, giving patients alcohol… Really?

 

RAY’S ROAMING RANTS

My running commentary on my Isle of Wight trip went down very well. To my surprise, people loved it! Ray’s Roaming Rants episodes won’t be regular, like the weekly Midweek Messages, as I’m not always out and about. My plan is to take my portable recorder with me whenever I visit interesting places. So, keep a lookout for Ray’s Roaming Rants!

Pulborough Brooks RSPB Reserve:

In this episode, Tricia and I visit the RSPB reserve at Pulborough in West Sussex. Visit their website here.

Isle of Wight Trip:

We had a lovely time on the Isle of Wight. I made a few audio recordings of various places we visited during our stay which I hope you will find interesting.

 

St Mary the Virgin Clapham Church West Sussex:

Welcome to another of Ray’s Roaming Rants. This time, I visit St Mary the Virgin Church at Clapham, West Sussex. The church, built in the 12th century, is in the woods. What better location for a lovely old building! I hope you enjoy this short episode.

 

St Mary’s Church Sompting, West Sussex:

This Roaming Rant took me to St Mary’s Church, Sompting, West Sussex. Built in the 11th or 12th century, the church is one of only a few on Britain with a Saxon tower. Please, join me for a look around the church.

INTERESTING LINKS

Over the years, some of you have sent me some interesting links. I’ve been unable to share them in the past but, now, I’ll be listing the links here. The first one is from Warren, it’s all about British pubs which are becoming an endangered species. Check it out here.

WHY LISTEN TO PODCASTS?

Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular, even surpassing videos in some respects. Audio content sparks the imagination in unique ways. This is why radio was so popular in the 1950s and 60s. Radio plays and comedy shows were captivating and engaging for listeners. Unfortunately, the quality and appeal of radio has declined over the years. Let me know what you think of my podcast episodes. Which ones do you like or dislike. What do you want more of? Please email me.
