The James Whale Radio Show on Play Two UK #1

Original YT playout date: 28 May 2008
Duration: 2:06:14

It was an immense middle-class whitey privilege to be allowed to broadcast on my YT channel the sound and also the live cam stream from a series of shows the very well known James Whale did on Play Two UK. James Whale is a personal favorite broadcaster of mine, whatever he might say teasing the Welsh I know he does have a soft spot for us and on top of that he has a great mind for phone in broadcasting. His book “a life time on Night Time” is a big hit among radio fans and larger archives exist of his work on other stations, such as LBC and also on TV. For sure at the time I was permitted to host these many a vlogger will have envied me.

“This is the first recorded feed of the James Whale Radio Show on Play Two UK ( ). Last week (20th May 2008) was the first ever edition of the James Whale Radio Show on Play Two UK, but as not video stream was attempted on the pilot show, I have started numbering from this show, which aired 27th May 2008.

The James Whale Radio Show is available to listen to live and to participate on Play Radio UK on Tuesdays from 18:00 to 22:00 hours UK time. I hope that James’ massive fan base from free-to-air radio will follow him in making the switch to internet radio, which is the future of radio broadcasting. This service is here as well as an audio podcast on playradio’s website for those who had to miss the show, but I know James hopes that wherever possible people will become a part of the show by listening live, phoning, skyping or emailing the show, and taking part in the live skype chat. The details of how to get involved can be found on the NTTBS videos on this channel, and in addition to those mention should be made of James’ own site

The feed this time is unfortunately rather fragmented, and there is only about half the show on it. This was because the London Linx server was having troubles during the show. Much of the UK internet had trouble at that time, not just Playradio UK, and it was outside the control of all parties.
