My Other Blogs

As much if not more for my benefit as anyone else’s, a record of my various active websites blogs. Some updated more regularly than others, according to need.

I was involved with “microtechnology” and accessibility from the early ’80’s, was running and moderating Professional and Union internet forums and email lists from the ’90’s and started hand-coding websites in 2002.  It got me into all sorts of trouble: Speech & Language Therapy and Communication Matters Representative on the BSI Committee for Communication Aids; NHS Therapies representative on the NHS Net User Group and various Government and NHS Advisory Groups on Augmentative Communication and Assistive Technology.

My work also involved organising annual conferences, regular workshops, exhibitions and other events as well as presenting and lecturing.

Now I am retired from all that, it is mostly all about ukuleles and music more generally!


Sept 2016:  I started playing bass guitar in March 2016 – jumping in feet first playing with “Angel Beast”.  Love it!  Being the “Band Geek” means I am also running the website, blog, Facebook Page, Twitter account, etc. etc.

More Speech and Language Therapy than ukuleles – but they have crept in there too . . .

The Ukes4Fun Blog has been going since 2009.  This is primarily for people attending ukulele sessions at The Cumberland Arms and The Millstone in Newcastle upon Tyne.

It seemed like a good idea at the time (around about September 2013) to set up a more general ukulele blog. The Ukes4Fun blog has lots of posts that remind about times and dates of meetings and so would be of little wider interest. I also wanted Ukelear Radiation to be somewhere less cluttered, where I could post my own videos and songs.

April 2015: Easter weekend – is this a good idea? We will have to see!  It is going to need a lot of work if it is to be any use. (Well, life and other things have got in the way so no progress on this one to report in the last couple of years. April 2017)
