Personal Interests

 

A little bit about me. 

Well I am in my 50's and married to Brigid and We have 5 children. 3 Girls, 2 Boys and 3 beautiful granddaughters 

I'm into radio since I was knee high to a grasshopper. 

the first introduction to radio was when I was about 7 years old. I remember my father getting a new valve radio which ran on a wet and dry battery and he had to take one of them back to the shop to get it re charged. Well I was really fascinated when I heard all the sounds coming from it !! Then one Sunday morning while my mother and father were gone to Church AND of coarse my brother who is 7 years older than me was supposed to be looking after me but he was more interested in a young lady which lived up the road from us, So when I got the chance I duly got a knife and opened the back of the radio to see if I could find the little people that were doing all the talking in there. I even took out the valves to see if there was anyone in there Hi Hi.. Well anyway I got the radio back toghether and all was fine till my father turned it on and of course there was a fizzzzle and silence. Well at that I went into hiding and my father was furious because the radio was only 1 month old. So next day he brought it back to the shop and was asked to call back for it a few days later.. OOooohhh boy !! when he came home from work that evening with a new radio !! you guessed it !! the big question was who did it !! Well anyway in the finish I had to admit to it. Well I got the biggest hiding I ever got that evening !! BUT that didn't put me off !! I'm still playing with radio and still find it as fascinating as ever.. 

Ok I better finish before I bore you all..
