Nothing to see here!
STUFF RARELY WRITTEN
The Full Totnes Breakfast began at the start of 2020 as an exercise regime. Really!
Mark El-Khadi and me had been popping up the wonderful Soundart Radio studios on a Monday evening to do an evening show highlighting all the wonderful things and events going down in our idylic corner of the planet, surrounded by a round table of guests for discussion and general banter. Unfortunately the show kind of petered out (See what I did there!)
The fabulous Chris and Lucida contacted me to ask if the show would go on and It occured to me that walking up to Dartington from Totnes and back everyday would be good for me and why not broadcast a daily 1 hour radio programme halfway along the journey? So TFTBS was born.
The format was similar to The Pulse show but would have sections of weather, local news, some music, and what's on with one guest daily. All was well until the Pandemic kicked in and closed the studios.
Chris and Lucida were determined to keep things going and set up systems enabling live broadcasts from remote locations including my own home, and the show resumed. Sadly, the main point of the programme was missing though - events.However, on the basis of "I've started, so I'll finish" The programme became more conversational and still continues.
It has been an honour to do the show this last year and has helped retain a little sanity for me in this strangest of years.
