Radio Here & Now
Radio Here & Now .. is an original, funny and highly interactive group activity for those living in residential care.
Radio Here & Now sees residents creating a "radio show" in which they become the presenters and producers. The resulting "programme" is available to share with friends and family around the world. (The recordings are NOT for broadcast.)
I've been delighted to work with some of the best care homes in the East of England. See my Radio Here & Now page. Here's a taster from a recent session. (Music by AShamaluev Music)
With a background in presentation and training, I really enjoy working with people who like to sit behind microphones. I coach on a 1 to 1 basis and train groups and wrote the "Presenter's Coach" handbook for BBC. My training results in immediate improvements.
60 minutes on Cloud 9 - the story, music & memories of Peterborough's Cloud 9 club where Free, Genesis and Thin Lizzy played before they became famous. Play loudly and enjoy!
I love trying out new tech. My reviews are impartial and unpaid. I've recently reviewed several radios in the Majority range which have been viewed over 55,000 times (June 2020) on YouTube.
Unique gift for future generations
