Acoustic and Eclectic with Richard Penguin

 

 

Presented by Richard Penguin every Sunday at 2pm.

Way back in 2005 having completed my degree as a mature student at UEA I broadcast my final show on their Livewire station, and reflected upon how enjoyable it had been to escape academia for 2 hours a week airing obscurities aplenty.

I assumed that this would be the end of a short lived venture into radio. How wrong I was. A year later I was asked to co-present a show on a station that had been offered a series of restricted short licence broadcasts and was based mainly in the box room of a semi-detached house. How could I refuse? That station was Future radio, and amazingly I am still there.

When Future got its full licence in 2007 the incredibly persuasive Stash Kirkbride launched the Platform show and brought me in as their music correspondent, which largely consisted of pointing a zoom recorder at some poor unsuspecting artiste and asking why their new EP was called ‘Stephen’s Coat’, chatting to seasoned performers who had played every venue going, and occasionally star names. It was a crazy year, and then, seemingly on the basis that I was a fan of Nick Drake the station manager Tom Buckham offered me a show of my own with a vague musical remit, and no budget.

As a result in November 2008 I began broadcasting my Acoustic and Eclectic show, and have only missed one show (it helps that I pre record). In January 2009 I began running a live music night of the same name and amateurishly recorded and then broadcast what would be for many of the artists their first time being played on the radio. This is a small part of the beauty of community radio in that it can give a voice, space and time to people who would not have that opportunity  elsewhere.

Many years on I still like to champion the local scene, but I am equally grateful for the opportunities I have had to interview many of my favourite artists, and to assail people’s earlobes.

Thanks to the internet, podcasting and with the technical help of Dean Tucker and Amy Nomvula Smith amongst others I have gained listeners far and wide. I still love discovering new music and interviewing people, and I guess that when that enthusiasm goes, so will I. There’s no sign of it going just yet though.
