    In tune
     
    Well, that's a first. Into Radio Merseyside today to record next week's Thoughts for the Day, which go out on the breakfast show after half-seven (and also at some other earlier unknown hour) Monday to Friday.

    That was enjoyable. Good to chat with producer / religious presenter Wayne Clarke who's got a background in among other things, Radio Greenbelt - he was there when it began, back in the early eighties when it was the first-ever event radio of its kind, a pioneer of what's now commonplace.

    In the best sense, Radio Merseyside also seems quite commonplace - in that it's a busy building full of chatty folks and does really seem to be a genuine local voice, a place where genuine local voices are made at home. And as all good community stuff does, it thrives because it's run by dedicated folk. Wayne works eighty percent for Radio Merseyside and is a Baptist minister thirty percent of his time, minimum. You do the maths.
