Dave Williams of Community Focus on Community Radio CalonFM.
Date: Tuesday January 30th
Venue: CalonFM in the Centre for Creative Industries, Glyndwr University, Wrexham.
Arriving early - unusual for me but I could hear my OH's usual admonishments in my ear -I was immediately bowled over by this new addition to the Univesity. CalonFM used to be housed in a small space at the top of another building. BBC Cymru used to be housed at the top of the round tower at the Wrexham Library and former Oriel Wrexham. ( I have been privileged to visit both in the past.
Now, both of them have been re-housed in this spanking new, state of the art building. I didn't even need headphones!
Dave is a very relaxed person and amazing person and a wonderful presenter,and chatted throughout in between music and news to draw out topics of interest from the guest. Richard, who was producing and sorting all the fades, timings, and music etc. joined in with these chats. I think that I sparked of his interest into Spain and Portugal.
Dave was keen to chat about my writings in general and our former Gold Wing touring motorbike travels in Just Us Two: Ned and Rosie's Gold Wing Discovery which formed the basis of the Just Us Two Travel series.
Topics were wide-ranging from how I started to write, what inspired me to write Just Us Two and the others, and what I am planning to write next. We also had some also had a good discussion on my Zip Wire experience with a fellow Lancs and Lakes Gold Wings member (region of Gold Wing Owners' Club of Great Britain [G.W.O.C.G.B.] I explained that we did it for the charity Dreamflight as well as celebrating a big birthday each. Mine a bit bigger than Ian's.
