Midwinter's Day - Another Year Begins

What a strange year our 2020 has been - the year of standing still. A chance to do more gardening, perhaps? Certainly a good time to have slowed down and enjoyed nature. Many masks were both bought and made, whilst becoming tech-savvy with Zoom etc. Although live music events have suffered more, recorded music and radio show production continued, albeit changed slightly. Here's hoping 2021 will see a return to normal opportunities as we wish you a happy and fulfilling New Year.

Shows live again

After several weeks of just pre-recorded shows, a knock-on effect of the first phase of coronavirus issues, we're back with live production. Listeners to Argyll FM on 106.5, 107.1 and 107.7 (which covers most of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland and reaches parts of Northern Ireland and Ayrshire) can again enjoy my Folk At Five shows daily at 1700 Mondays through Saturdays, and Teatime With Trevox at 1800 on Fridays.

There's a lot of new music to hear, added after audition to the playlists which can be checked out on the web by following the links at Many broadcast shows are also available there to listen to again.

Change of gearbox pro tempore

The lockdown triggered by the pandemic of Coronavirus Covid-19 continues, meaning that my radio shows are using a pre-select "gearbox" rather than the usual live manual, to use a motoring paradigm. It's not an automatic though, so new music continues to be added to playlists. Thank you to all the artists sending tracks in.

Coronavirus Covid-19

In common with many organizations just now, my radio program production has been disrupted. Hope to be back soon.

Music old & new, & sometimes a surprise or two

The daily Monday to Saturday folk music show Folk At Five is produced and presented live in Campbeltown for Argyll FM by Trevox, along with Friday's Teatime With Trevox. After each show, people can listen again on Mixcloud as well as catching up on the playlists with the programmes' 'blogs. Playlists go back years.
Listen live on Argyll FM from 1700 on these frequencies: 106.5, 107.1 & 107.7.
The tagline "Music old and new, and sometimes a surprise or two" is lived out daily in both the social comment, history and joie de vivre of Folk At Five and the dancey feelgood rhythmic records of Teatime With Trevox. New music is frequently added from the plethora of offerings of musicians the world over, and thanks are due to those who send in new material and re-post our 'blog entries on theirs.

Passive loudspeakers can be handy

Because I sometimes do outside events, I have a set of passive speakers which can be covered quickly with poly-bags if it rains, avoiding the need to run power outside and up to powered speakers on poles. For amplifiers, I prefer fanless convection-cooled (e.g. Behringer A500 and now A800), as fans on amplifiers and other equipment can often be noisy. It is possible to replace inbuilt noisy fans with quiet models, but you would need to be confident with the electrical and mechanical work required to achieve it.
