I missed last night but the young people with the business plan for making Northumberland Rock sounded really organised.

Bedlington's new entrepreneurs.

I liked the idea that in marketing their product they are too young to drive.

I will be heading to the Chantry to buy.

Customised Bedlington Morpeth, Blyth, Ashington and Newbiggin Rock. All with a relevant picture.

Such a brilliant idea.

Help please!

Which musician with a Geordie voice were you talking to this morning Colin.

His music was good but we did not catch his name or the name of his group.

He said he was going to play near Kings Cross and that he had played outside at the Sage for the Americana Festival.

He also said he was going to play the Hoochie Coochie club.

I am guessing you are all to busy.

As volunteers, your work commitment is worthy of recognition, locally and nationally.

Very well done.

It is a shame I cannot dedicate more time to listening.

It is like having a friend in the room chatting.

Sorry Ladies.

This is the first chance I`ve had to reply to your archive question.

It`s a very busy time doing all Synergy stuff & a full time job.

When our 28 day stint comes to an end. I will begin the job of going through our programme logs finding stuff which is either about, or relevant to, Bedlington.

The time consuming thing is it has to have the music removed from it for copyright reasons.

So it will take some time for me to do. But it will get done.

In the meantime after our broadcast ends next Friday you might like to listen to some of last years output available on the Audio button at the top of the page.

Many thanks for the kind words.

It would be great if our station became popular around the World.

Raising the profile of Bedlington.

Very well done to all involved.

Cooperation from painting the building to the intellectual interviews.

Just shows what good people can achieve.

During our first FM broadcast I had to pleasure of interviewing ex Bedlingtonian author Paul Mann re. his book "The Leek Club"

Life in Bedlington during the 50s: an excellent read. But don`t give it to your Granny as an Xmas present!

In our last broadcast another author stopped by: retired Lieutenant Colonel, Sydney Carr to talk about his book "The Fourth Lad".

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Fourth-Lad-challenging-upbringing-ebook/dp/B00BZZKMWU/ref=tmm_kin_title_0

Another facinating snap shot of his younger days in the 40s & 50s, growing up in the colliery rows of Ashington.

I`ve just finished it. Wonderful! It triggered so many memories for me. Including (to name just one) the furtive underage drink in the Portland worrying if the local police would come in!

As it isn`t a Bedders related theme, I haven`t added my interview with Syd to the audio archive, but as it is about a subject/era that gets covered a lot in our forums, I will do if requested.

Ah yes. I remember a time when every night was music night in Ashington. Either a disco or live band on all week in the social clubs & of course The Cellar.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
