Hi Gang,

It has been a while, but plenty to catch up on… So kettle on! Hit the link, and lock into the station Boogie Bunker Radio

First, I want to take about my wife.  Anyone who knows my wife, will know that she is a little bundle of energy! In her head she’s 15, and still thinks that she is capable of doing the same things now, as she did then.  This weekend, we had the Spring BBQ, my wife always hostess with the mostest.. Worked like a trooper! granted she was no good, to man, nor beast for a few days afterwards, but I want to say how much, I love and enjoy having her by my side. I just wanted to let her know how important she is too me, and my day-to-day life, and I would be lost without her.

Onward!

Well, I am a few days away from arriving in Tenerife for some LIVE broadcasts with a few of the UK & Tenerife BBR Radio DJ’s.  Which is always fun, and we get a chance to have some down time together which can always be messy, one of our presenters is part of a Stag crew who will join us for the finale! Which see’s us all at the ‘Lagoon Party‘ at the Hard Rock Hotel… Very messy.. Will report on that on my return! For details on the Shows & LIVE Broadcasts, visit the BBR Website

And there’s more!

Sometime’s as a parent your torn between hugs, or strangulation. As father of 5, I find it always a surprise to find that my children have a belief that I as an adult, have not lived a life! And that I haven’t either pulled the same if not similar strokes myself, or know someone who has? Further than that.. Any advice we give them, is all just our way of in some way spoiling their fun, or bursting that ever inflated bubble.  Of all my children I have a deep-seated love for, some days they piss me off, some days I burst with pride for their achievements.  I have 4 girls, and each is a survivor in their own way, one is a mother, and is getting used to being a parent, and the new perspective on life that she has to adapt too making rules for her own.. She has my support and I will do all I can help.  I have a daughter, that is so much like me that it would shock her, if she was to admit the truth. at times all of my children have clashed with me, or their mothers, and my philosophy, has a will always be… We are parent and child, no matter how old you are, we are note mates.. We can be close, but we are not mates!  If we become mates, then you will be able to call me a C**t, like you do your mates, I will become less important over the years, like your mates! I am forever, and I am the person that you should turn to when in need.

Note I haven’t mentioned my son, this isn’t for any specific reason.  I am not going to lie, he recently let me down, which in turn let himself down, another story, and not for this blog.  But my point is this, our children have no idea how much we worry about them.. No we don’t always show our concern, and that is another parenting trait! we much be brave for them.  But I have sat a watched my wife having a restless night, because one of the kids has a cold, and that will never stop.  And who as a parent would want to have that trait programmed out of them? Not me!

I liken my job as a parent to that of a priest!! No I can’t wed you, but I give out more ‘forgiveness’ than the pope! As a parent, we are either blessing, or taking confession!  Point being this, our kids will make mistakes, and it is my hope that they learn from them, and in turn become better people.  It’s my hope, but DNA isn’t something which should define us as parents.. It’s what should define our children? As it’s our DNA that they are made from!

Just Saying… Moving On!

I would like to thank everyone who came down for the BBQ, we had great weather, and the Punch went down a treat, and half a pig was well and truly consumed, and the dog made whoopee to the bones. Now, we have had requests to do it again, as a great summer is promised… But at BBR we have something planned to the 12 weeks of Summer, check the website for info.

I have said some time ago that for me, the Radio Station was a progression, of my love for music, and although owning a station was never part of the plan.  I have picked up the gauntlet, and run with it, and I owe to those that work for me, to make the station as best as it can be. Without financial backing no Radio station can survive in this world of podcasts, and Spotify.  I have a plan, and to some it’s a dream, but BBR was a dream to some, and it’s success is a formula, which has been tested before! But that’s my secret.

In the coming month or to we will be making some brand changes, and the station will change in the way we do things, and these are busy, but exciting times for me, and my family. I will do my best to cover some of the goings on in my blog, but all will possible be revealed soon.

Another 4 day weekend is upon us, and it’s my hope to spend as much of it relaxing, as I am Knackered! But looking forward to some Sun & Cocktails in Tenerife next week.

Finally.

Have a great weekend, and be nice to each other.

You know what to do?

HOLLA AT ME!
