Radio Car Travelogue 12 - 16 January


A fair old runaround to start the week with a visit first to record dealer Eric White who tells me that vinyl is still selling well including todays 50th anniversary of the Tamla Motown label founded by Berry Gordy. Here he's pictured with a few of the discs in their distinctive sleeves. Anyone who was around in the 60's can smell the nostalgia.

Next, a visit to County Hall and deep down in the sub-basement (pictured) Emergency Planning Officer Steve Grundell. BBC Radio Norfolk has a permanent line from here so an easy broadcast technically. This is where any disaster would be co-ordinated from. The last time was the exceptionally high tides just over a year ago.
My last broadcast today is to revisit Finbarre Carter at the Hamlet Centre. A fabulous facility for anyone with special needs. His 24-hour silence (see last weeks Travelogue Friday) has already over £1600 and you can add to that by going to www.justgiving.com/finbarrecarter.

Tuesday we continue with the "What If" series and I'm despatched to Police HQ at Wymondham. We make the broadcast from the Control Room hence the photo of the outside! After that I'm just down the road at Wymondham Town centre with Jack and Lee who keep us from being knee-deep in litter. Why are we such a messy nation? Without these boys Norfolk's towns and villages would look shabby.

Wednesday and I'm on the road with travel updates because it's a frosty foggy morning. My one i/v today is with farmer Richard Hirst at Ormesby St.Margaret. New restrictions are likely on the use of pesticides which will affect Norfolk growers.
Thursday and Friday the news is predominantly about the sacking of Glenn Roeder and who'll be in charge of the team next Saturday at home to Barnsley. I took the radio car to the market at Fakenham on Thursday to hear what fans there thought including one ex-footballer who felt "sorry for the bugger!" (Apologies - just quoting a local)
Friday, after soring the technicals to get Andrew Macintosh of Anglian Water on-air for Essex and Norfolk, I take myself off to join commentator Chris Goreham at the NCFC Training Ground at Colney. After much speculation we learn that it's Brian Gunn who's overseeing the game on Saturday but he's non-commintal about anything else to do with the management of the club although we take a number of calls suggesting that we could do worse than appoint Brian as the new manager. Watch this space and stay runed to BBC Radio Norfolk! So ends another busy week.
