Radio St Austell Bay

Today, I was invited onto Radio St Austell Bay to discuss local issues and choose some music.

RSAB is a new community radio station run on a not-for-profit basis by a voluntary management committee with extensive experience of local radio and community development.

Many volunteers are involved and they are from a range of age groups and all sorts of backgrounds. All types of music are catered for and, as well as presenting programmes, volunteers are involved in producing, researching and administration.

I thought the whole set-up was tremendous and the enthusiasm of the volunteers was really impressive.

I normally go on about politics too much, so for those who might be interested - the music I selected was Crocodile Rock by Elton John (happy memories of college), Devil in Disguise by Elvis (growing up), What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye (political music), City of New Orleans by Willie Nelson (just great music) and a track from Cornwall’s very own Dalla.

For those who are interested, RSAB broadcast on 105.6FM and more information can be found at

Hi Panda!

I think politicians need (apart from a very thick skin and a lot of patience) a supportive partner and an absorbing hobby.

I've managed to sort out the second (archery), am working on the first but have no intention of ever getting as immersed in politics as you are(fatal last words)!
