Hello Richard Wall here, thanks for taking a look at my page here on Radio Deeside, having retired from carting vinyl records and disco equipment around in my earlier years I found my passion for radio by helping out at BBC Radio Merseyside on the infamous “Hold your Plums” hosted by Billy Butler and Wally Scott.
That did it for me I was hooked or as Radio Deesides Barry Dale would say “you have radio in your blood Richard through and through” from then on a radio studio was my heaven.
Before community radio came along I dabbled in the theatrical world by helping out at the (now closed) Gateway Theatre in Chester and of course we all have to keep a roof over our heads so I found myself working in retail and to this day I still do but when I am not serving customers I spend time at home with my wife Jacqueline and our two cats who apparently are big fans of the Richard Wall show
So let’s get down to the nitty gritty I have long been a fan of the following,
Broadcasting in particular Radio
Music of the 60s, 70s and 80s and I occasionally drift back into the 50s or forward into the 90s
When it comes to music The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Elvis and Shakin Stevens are firm favorites of mine
The Eurovision Song Contest
Gerry Anderson TV Programmes
Sci-Fi and in particular Dr Who
And of course not forgetting
Hold your Plums
So every Monday on Radio Deeside between 10 and midday you can catch my show, I start your new week with a mixture of everything from the list above, so if its nostalgia you are looking for then just before 10am make a brew sit down, relax and indulge in my Monday Musical Miscellany
For requests and dedications you can find me on facebook and follow me on twitter, and be rest assured that The Drs Sonic Screwdriver is always at hand to deal with any studio technical issues that may arise on Monday mornings.
