2. The Big Idea

1/6/2018
More
If you had the ability to return to visit yourself in early youth, what would you do with that? Would you advise them in a way that would change your life irrevocably? But if you did, what about the 'Law of Unintended Consequence'? Who would you end up being as a result? Would you even like what you would become? Far better instead to go back there and steal a precious gift, a gift of unfettered vision...

Here comes 'That Time of Year' again. It's relentless isn't it? Well... here is a story with a difference. Imagine being given a gift of love, only to slowly realise that you are also a gift being given... and that you need to learn to love yourself, too. There's a fire in the hearth, the room is warm and has seemed that way for centuries. There are stockings on the mantelpiece... and you awake to find you are not alone. Merry Christmas everyone! With Love and Respect from Bill Allerton...

Heeley Writers R.I.P.

12/9/2017
More
Welcome to Heeley Writers R.I.P. This was an organisation that myself and many friends enjoyed the support of some twenty odd years ago. (Very odd years!) It was for a long time a member group of The Federation of Worker Writers and Community Publishers. A left-wing gobfull of a title if ever there was one! However, it too was a worthwhile effort until someone made off with the funds! This is side one of 'Pieces of Eight', a tape of poems and stories recorded by the group in 1991.

In Memory of Rhoda Swindells

10/13/2017
More
Hi. This short podcast is dedicated to the memory of Rhoda Swindells, the wife of Howard Swindells, the subject of our Kelham Island Discs number 3. I met Rhoda several times at The Gardeners Rest and various other events but most notably in the kitchen of the house where I interviewed Howard. Rhoda was obviously seriously ill at that time and Howard displayed such care and affection with her that it was impossible not to be moved. A very few days after the interview they moved home to...
