Hello all, and welcome to the weekend.
What a strange week, with AZ Towers being very quiet, indeed, deserted at times.
So, I hold the fort at the moment, with what's to come this weekend, programme wise, about to be revealed.
But what of recent days ?
Very good to hear the return of Rich Phoenix, after a long while. The Pod went download crazy for a while as Rich's first show in eons hit the airwaves. And - there's another one to come, in about a weeks time. Ok ?
I mentioned not too long ago, of our Nordic tripper, Richard Bismarck. He has returned from the fjords, safe and well, and there is no doubt he will tell you all about it, on his next programme. This, too, will be with you shortly.
And once again in your ears soon, will be Zoe Street, who returns to AZ Towers next week.
What a strange week meanwhile, for our MC, Mr Reece.
To say so many changes have hit him all at once could be something of an understatement. To cap all that, he has not been around at AZ Towers too much, owing to a sudden sinus virus attack (yes, again !).
He knows the symptoms by now - he could feel this one approaching, so he rushed in here to get a show 'in the can' as it were, as quickly as possible.
Not sure how he managed it, but he did.
But, with approaching high temps, giddiness, pain, all sorts of nonsense - a radio studio isn't exactly what the doctor would order, so kudos to the Scotsman for rushing in here before the symptoms would take their full effect.
They did, a couple of days ago - but happily, he's on the mend now.
What a week.
This weekend ?
Ah yes, those AZ Programmes.
Saturday night, 9th September, via RTI and Sky, we have the recent jointly hosted show from 'The Glades' (also known as AZ Studio 2), featuring Johnny Reece and Andy Miles.
Lots of gossip, and reminiscences about Radio 6, MNO, and the like.
