  • In the press – 1993-1995

    Many thanks to Martin Weaver for pointing me to the British Library in regard to newspapers etc. I have found some snippets of how gay men and lesbians were portrayed in the tabloids at the time – interestingly, The Sun didn’t appear in any of my searches!!! So to begin with, The Sandwell Evening Mail […]

  • A curious problem I have….

    Preamble  – Normally I would put this kind of post on either my company website, or my personal blog, however, the issue is hitting this site/project, so I thought it best to put it here. This problem is very World Wide Web (WWW from heron) specific, as well as being Covid-19 specific too. I wanted […]

  • What I have done so far…

So this is what should happen across all places: This website sends the new episodes across all the podcasting providers you see on this site. YouTube is also automatically scheduled. I will disclose the fact that ALL 30 years have been recorded, edited and scheduled […]

  • In the Press 1991 -1993

    As this is being retroactively posted  – I started this part of the site from Episode 2, rather than 1 (whoops) – Here is how the LGBT+ (well gay men in particular) community and AIDS was portrayed in the British Press at the time. As these are pre-internet days, I am using The British newspaper […]

  • Well, this is the start…

    I now realise I cannot go back now. Episode One is out in the wild!! As I am my own host/podcasting provider etc – I still have that big red button and nuke the lot! Yes, I am scared – as this is a very, very frank commentary on my life, but I hope that […]
