- August 2017
I think the dust has settled now after a very busy weekend with our annual
rally. It was all hands to the pumps a week ago getting ready for the onslaught
of campers that enjoy coming every year.
I was asked by the BBC to do a radio interview for the Listening Project, this
involves two friends sitting round a table just talking to each other about
their passion, of course in my case I was asked to talk about the Morris Mi-nor.
I invited Tim W to join me in this escapade as Tim is also passionate about them
too, and with quite an inter-esting history involved. When he was Mayor of
Driffield he always used his then Moggy Wilhelmina 1 in his civic duties rather
than the bigger Mayoral car that was, and still is the norm. As Tim is very
fluent with his love of the Minor, between us an ideal partnership was born!! It
was an interesting experience that took place in a recording ‘pod’ on
Bridlington’s North Side Promenade on a very blustery overcast afternoon. It was
a two hour thing; the first hour we were just interviewed on a casual basis by
our producer Sara, who then gave us a flavour of what she wanted which really
was a bit like repeating the whole thing again. Once wired for sound and our
mikes in place, sound checks done we were off and running! We managed to talk
for 54 minutes absolutely none stop!! It was a great experience that we both
enjoyed, we were given a copy of our recording to listen back, and I must admit
it isn’t half bad apart from the fact that when you listen to a recording of
your own voice it’s a bit……you know what I mean….
We don’t know when it will be given air time, its on Radio 4 and a copy is also
going into the BBC archives for ref-erence in the future.
