An irregular feature here, we’ll be starting the Torchwood drinking game to make watching the show more interesting. So… 1. Every time there’s an unnecessary aerial shot of Cardiff, take a drink. 2.

Just going through the 100+ feeds that i’m susbscribed to in Google Reader has been interesting in itself as there’s loads of people who i’ve read that have stopped blogging in the last six [...]
Thusday was an odd day. Being an ex-student radio type i’ve become the person that looks after the relationship between GCap and the student radio massive. As part of this year’s support of the Student Radio Awards our stations around the country have helped out with a local training day and provided (where we could) [...]
