Morning Ladies & Gents,

I just wanted to take a moment of your time to let you in on a little project Iím involved in outside of work that may help you enjoy the last hour and a bit of the working day a couple of times this week.

Donít worry; you wonít even have to leave your desk!!!

Iím a member of Brooklands FM, a new local radio station broadcasting to communities in and around the Brooklands, Woking, Weybridge, Byfleet and Staines area of Surrey. We are hoping to apply for a full FM licence later in the year but in the meantime are running an internet broadcast, for a bit of fun, starting on the 19th May through to the 15th June, from Cosmic Electrical Store in AddlestoneÖ and Iíll be live on air!!!
We have about 40 members from very different backgrounds and will be broadcasting a wide variety of music (new, old and live) covering the last 40 years or so. Weíll also be focussing on local news, events, information interviews and new musical talent from the area and, best of all, itíll involve me!!!

Iíve got three shows this week: today, Thursday & Friday from 4 Ė 5.30. Why not listen in and enjoy the fun??!? You can receive the stream by clicking on to http://www.brooklandsfm.co.uk

While the focus is local and community based radio, due to the magic of the internet you can listen in from anywhere. You can even contribute to the show, request songs and win prizes too: e-mail: studio@brooklandsfm.co.uk or call the studio on 01932 832408. Weíll be running competitions every day for your chance to win great prizes (today's great prizes a Samsung MP3 player worth £99 and a Whirlpool microwave worth £105) so why not brighten that last hour of the day, plus a little time after 5, with a cracking set of songs and chat from yours truly? Or you can listen to the other guys on the station, your call ;o)

More info can be found at http://www.brooklandsfm.co.uk.

Hope you can listen and hope you enjoy.

Cheers guys

Matt, the ever Smilin'

You may find its 'cos it runs through Windows media although yeah it tends to work better through IE I think.

That's fantastic!

I've put a reminder in my calendar app, so will have a listen if I am about. How's it going/ hope it's going well?

I blame lame school computers for not having iTunes then.

Sounds cool, Smiler! I'll have to remember to figure out how to bypass the corporate firewall to get to it.

Is it on Shoutcast? If it is I might just be able to stream it through Twonkymedia and play it on my wireless music player. That'll save me hacking company security.

Oh, and congrats on the mod status, bud. Hope the mod pants fit better than mine do wink.gif

The stream is working at the moment, but the firewall crashes down after 2pm so we'll see if it's still working later. I'll see if I can sneak out an email later.

I turned it on and immediately knew it was Matt, he was talking about LARPing. Good work sir.

And now a bit of James Brown, it just gets better.

I did enjoy the dedication greatly. Good show Matt, I look forward to the next one.

Technically I'm not allowed streaming media at work, so it might get blocked in the end, but until then I'll be tuning in quite regularly.

Some of the adverts remind me of Mr Snaffleburger animations.

I anticipate Monkey News in today's show, but I finish work at five so you'll need to do it before then!

I'm going to download iTunes now, fairly sure we'll be in our seats for most of the day, so hopefully I'll be able to listen!

*edit* Gah school is lame. How do you get past Firewall?
