This will be the last post to appear on this blog – but don’t despair (in the unlikely event you were thinking of despairing) I shall be continuing to write at my new address, which is https://newcrimsonrambler.wordpress.com/, so retune now to stay in touch.
This has partly been forced on me, in that this blog is now full – not of words (I can have as many of them as I like) but of images. I didn’t want to delete old posts (out of sentimentality, mainly) and other options, such as archiving some of the posts elsewhere, seemed too laborious, so I’ve decided to make a clean break and begin a new site. There is something rather exciting about starting with a completely blank slate and it would be nice to think it might help me recapture some of the joie-de-vivre I seem to have had when I began this blog, what now seems like many years ago.
Older readers may be reminded of the time Radio 1 switched its frequency from 247 to 275/285. If I had any space for images left I might try to find one of their DJs of the time wearing one of the t-shirts they produced to publicise the switch. Or perhaps it’s for the best that I don’t have the space.
It goes without saying that I’m immensely grateful to everyone who has followed, commented on, helped to publicise or simply read this blog over the last six years and I hope you’ll continue to do so on the new site.
See you on the other side!
