I genuinely had no intention of blogging on 1 January 2016. But things changed as a result of my investing in a new laptop to replace what had been a faithful 10-year old PC that was no longer fit for purpose. The old PC wasn’t great at doing anything beyond the most basic of operations and things I wanted to bring to the blog were proving beyond it.

Radio 236 (named after the number of the house I live in) is launching today. It’s basically a podcast without words and as I learn how to do things better with the new programmes available to me then it will improve. Episode 1 contains 14 songs in just under 53 minutes.

Tune in here:

Or feel free to download:-

Feed The Tree – Belly
No Bulbs – The Fall
Teardrop – Massive Attack
Nowhere Fast – The Smiths
Atheist Money – Adam Stafford
A Great Example To The Dogs – Lord Cut Glass

  1. Happy new year all! As well as trying to lose weight, change jobs, defeat scammers, save the honeybee, run a marathon, build a thing that goes round and round, redecorate, write a book, and at some point actually get around to watching “Bambi”, I am also starting a blog. Usual thing, click on my name. (I really must think about a better screen name this year too.)

  2. This looks great, JC. Gotta keep it exciting, Not for us, of course. We love this place. I’m sure this is a healthy addition for you too. Happy new year to you and Mrs. Villain! Thanks for all of your efforts. Off to listen now.
