I thought it’s about time I put my face on the listener’s Gallery, and tell you a little about myself ....... I am a Yorkie in exile – having moved across the Pennines in 1991 to work as a Seasonal Tram Guard with Blackpool Transport. One season went into five. I moved out of Blackpool town centre in 1997, with my partner, and we now live in Thornton-Cleveleys, which is near enough to Blackpool, but far enough away, just 1 mile inland from the Irish Sea. I retired from the Civil Service in 2004 on medical grounds, so have already had quite a bit of retirement. I made many friends while working on Blackpool Transport, and keep in touch with many of them. It was the best job I ever had. Always something going on, banter with the passengers, and crew. Never enjoyed a job as much as I did then.
I have been a listener to Angel Radio since September 2012, and I listen to very little of anything else – the best thing I ever did was to tune into Angel Radio.
So we now have a new chapter in the life of Angel Radio, and long may it continue. Dave Jessop
