Memories of Radio

If you are as old as me, you’ll remember the old days of running home from school to listen to your favourite radio show. We’ve come a long way since then. Today’s ten-year-old is likely to have an iPhone or iPad, so there’s no need to hurry home. Favourite programs can be accessed any time there is a connection to the Internet, which seems to be all the time. So why am I talking about memories of radio?

Because now we have Podcasts, and Podcasts might be the link we’ve been looking for to the radio serials of our past.


[pod-kast, ‐kahst]

Noun – a digital audio or video file or recording, usually part of a themed series, that can be downloaded from a website to a media player or computer:

Download or subscribe to daily, one-hour podcasts of our radio show.

Verb –  to record or upload as a podcast:

He podcasts once a week on various topics.

She podcasts her lectures.

Podcasts first showed up in the eighties but didn’t gain popularity until late 2004. In the last few years, Podcasts have had a serious revival. In fact, a couple of friends of mine are creating Podcasts.

Breanda Cross, a Crime Writer, is turning her writing into Podcasts.

Click here to listen to Breanda’s Fast Fiction Episode called Sound of Silence.

Just a reminder – Breanda is a Crime Writer and the scary side of crime features heavily in this episode.

Other episodes of Breanda Cross’ Fast Fiction can be found here.

Or, you can find Fast Fiction Podcast at Tunein or iTunes.

I hope Breanda’s Podcasts take you back down memory lane to those happy times, when we huddled around the radio to hear our favourite show.

Grab your iDevice, go online, and start listening to Podcasts. Those memories of radio will come flooding back.
