So sad to hear that Keith Chegwin has died at the age of 60. I’ve met him and interviewed him a few times. I wish I’d kept the photos of us together and the audio of our chats. I know I used to have some and don’t know why I haven’t kept them. Maybe it’s […]


The death of radio has been greatly exaggerated. In this connected world, on-demand entertainment is only as far away as your phone. Some people think broadcast radio is on the way out. Well there is a place where radio is still the first choice. That place is the car. You can connect you phone wirelessly […]


Predicting the future is not worth it because eventually you get proved wrong. I’m going to download the new Blade Runner film, “Blade Runner 2049”. I can’t remember much about the original film, so I decided to watch it again before I watch the new one. What a disappointment it is. I suppose when it […]

  By June next year, women will no longer be forbidden from getting behind the wheel of a car in Saudi Arabia, but where are they going to drive to? They could drive to a clothes shop, but getting the right size will be difficult because women are not allowed to try on clothes in […]

Apple are starting to confuse me now. The new iPhone is out, actually there are two new ones. The iPhone 8 replaces the iPhone 7. They’ve also released the iPhone 10 (X). They’ve skipped 9 completely. Each new Apple phone has more features than the last but they’re also taking things away. The iPhone 7, […]

Tech No Notice

08Mar17

“Has wearable tech had it’s day?” That was the heading of an article I read this week. It means that some tech gurus are finally waking up to the truth, NOBODY WANTS WEARABLE TECH! For the last ten years all we’ve heard from anyone that talks or writes about technology is that wearable tech will […]

The new iPhone 7 doesn’t have a headphone socket but Apple will sell you some cordless headphones for £159. They’re rechargeable, tiny little things that you stick in your ears. Which is perfect because I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said to myself, “If only I could find some headphones that are […]

I’ve never understood why complaints that common sense would tell you, are not worth wasting your time with, get so much attention from people who run and regulate radio stations in the UK. I read this week that Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo, presenters of the BBC Radio 5 Live film review show got into […]


It’s not easy to predict the the future. The Met Office have all kinds of scientific equipment including satellites to help predict the future and they’re rubbish at it. They predicted a hot dry summer for England. We actually got one of the coldest wettest. In the autumn, they predicted 38 days of Arctic winter. […]

Websites should not load anything until they load EVERYTHING. I’ve lost count of the times when I’ve clicked on a link on a site that hasn’t fully loaded and have ended up clicking the wrong thing. It’s because, in the microsecond between deciding to click and actually clicking, the website loads up a bit more […]


Apple Music is coming to 100 countries later this month. What will it mean for commercial radio? Apple’s radio stations, just like iTunes, are forms of distribution. Is that the business radio is in? Well, yes, commercial music radio stations are in the distribution business, not the content business. They use most of their air […]
