Hi Sini. Well now... Double Locks was THE pub when we first lived in Exeter. Bohemian, friendly, great food and music, welcomed kids. We loved it. Things change. Different brewers, I think. It still does good food and ridiculous puddings, but the atmos is less.
That curiously pale young man is still behind the bar, looking a little older and sadder.
The great Tony left and has started a mini-Locks (armchairs, dogs, newspapers, super food) at Ide, The Poachers. We aimed to move there, but it's too high-priced now. Looked at Silverton too, but opted for Stoke Canon which has a strong community; about to open a community pub, which we shall get involved with on the food side. House is just a box, but there's space for a better studio, and a view of fields.
As for radio, well it's the brewery scenario. We had an eclectic, friendly, ILR station in South Hams Radio until Global went on the rampage. I went to the launch. Dispiriting. Director admitted to me he had zero freedom 24/7 to play off the genre list.
It's called Heart - rhymes nicely with flatulence?
If you are ever over this way - do be sure to give Davrile and me a call. Quite probable we could offer you a space for a day or two, building and pubbery permitting. Would be great to talk shop.
Hidy howdy zip a dee doo dah, Sini! Are you wearing your hat comfortably? Hand cranked boat afloat? Then I'll begin... It's great to hear from you. Well, what a co-incidence, then. We (wife Davrille and I) met in London centuries ago then moved to Exeter via Wales/chickens/Herefordshire/Steiner School/goats, where as part of running a volunteering organisation I stumbled into RSL radio pres... "Howard's End" inevitably.
We lived in Exeter alongside our two children for 11 years, and missed it keenly when we came here to Brixham - so it's back to a village just north of the city in about five weeks. VO will be easier - Brix can be incredibly noisy, with trawlers, helicopters, gulls. But, hey, there is music every hour, on the hour - the church clock in our street clangs Abide With Me.
Exeter is coming alive, as you probably saw. Respect Festival last week was heaving, and I don't mean throwing up.
Among the great gigs, Peachy Farmer with my daughter on keys. PhonicFM did a great job, making a point of loading indie bands to their player system. Tell that to GWR!
So, you have substantial experience and a wonderful vocal range. When and how did VO get onto that?
