Radio

Quick Idea - a city wide radio station (from the Edge of the Forest of Dean in the west, to Brockworth in the east, to Churchdown to the north to Hardwicke and Quedgeley in the south), set up on a RSL (Restricted Service License) to broadcast for the duration of the summer festival that takes place in July/August. Content designed to appeal to a broader audience than Gloucester FM caters to.

I listen to a few poker podcast, some come and go, with the others some are good listening and others not so good, so it was great to come across one which sounds good and should be regular as it is also a weekly radio show.

The podcast in question is the Bernard Lee Poker Show podcast. It is initially broadcast live on the radio station 1510 The Zone (WWZN) on Tuesdays and is then put up on the Internet as a podcast on the site Rounder's Radio.

The thing I particularly like about this show is that is sounds like a traditional American sports radio show, like you would get an an ESPN or Fox Sports affliate (in fact WWZN is, according to it's website, a Sporting News Radio affliate) as opposed to a show that started out on the Internet in the first place.

For anyone who uses a Podcatcher or RSS Reader, you can get the podcast directly from http://roundersradio.libsyn.com/rss/Bernard%20Lee%20Poker%20Shows

Two of my passions are radio and podcasts and as I also have an interest in politics it is nice to find some radio shows and/or podcasts with either a political or current affairs theme.

One such show/podcast that I listen to is the show called Wait, Wait, Don't Tell me on NPR stations.

For someone like me, this week's show (which was broadcast last Saturday) was particularly special as it featured none other than Leonard Nimoy (aka Spock from the original Star Trek series). He was very enjoyable to listen to and came across very well on the show.

For anyone who missed it and enjoys a little bit of political satire (mixed with a little bit an celebrity entertainment) should be able to get the podcast of the show from the NPR site.
