At school I had a disturbing English language teacher. Interestingly, her name was Mrs French! Anyway, at the time I would delight in writing long essays or short stories. However, Mrs French was brutal in her criticism and in my view did not encourage what I believed to be my creative side.
In early 2005 I was reading a Financial Times article on something called Podcasting and Real Simple Syndication. It dawned on me that ‘the man in the street’ could potentially develop their own content and hopefully use it to share and gain new relationships. To date, listeners to my productions have contacted me from Norway and Japan, all facilitated by the amazing Internet.
I believe that content produced should be well researched, structured, honest (in terms of respecting copyright) and focused on quality. Today I am involved in a number of productions, projects and shows (both video and audio), for example:
- The Smooth Groovers Review & Beyond The Groove Shows
- Sikhwithin and
- Dijatell – Digital Informatics Journal & Archive
NB They are all licensed by the MCPS and PRS Music alliance and available from both itunes and optionally via associated iPhone App’s.
My Video projects can be viewed from:
I’ve also had the honor of being a guest on TV and Radio shows produced by the BBC.
I hope you enjoy them & that I feel that I give a unique perspective!
