Week Forty- Seven – FaceTube Startlement

Nov 18 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
Way back when Google Video was a thing, it was the spot of choice to upload a few supporting moving picture clips of stuff for us here on Talk Audio. Then, I got that call from the Radio 2 researcher asking if there was anything ‘embarrassing’ about me on the Internet. She said, “Oh, I imagine no...

Noblesse Oblige! NOBLE £1,000.00 IN EAR MON...

Talk Audio was intentionally named just that, avoiding the word ‘car’ to de-restrict from our primarily automotive passion and permit the occasional drool over audio from other worlds. Thing is, I reckon the mobile theme obtains in all of life these days. So as well as having looked at these £400...

I went to a trendy university called UEA. One that had been given such status back in the Sixties. It is in Norwich and as well as the Environmental Science department I attended, that has been in the news in recent years due to climate change stories and issues, it also has very schprauncey art...

BCSS OPEN EVENING WITH JL AUDIO OCTOBER 2014

Nov 04 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Shows & Events
You may prefer to see and hear content about things as simply delicious as the JL Audio invitation evenings, rather than read my meanderings. So this feature is mostly video and pictures and is all about the cool that went down in Coulsdon. The Celsus Ice guys, who are JL Audio in our territory,...

Week Forty- Five – Alternators & Community

Nov 03 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
Two thoughts today. There are two sides to the car audio thing. One is the individual adoration of music while you drive, in all its forms, for its own sake. Be it loud rock, searing smoky jazz divas or dance music played loud enough to FEEL. The other is the love of the equipment itself for what...

As my own life in car audio began, I was an avid reader of Car Stereo & Security. I was so far beyond sick with green eye that Kevin O Byrne, our editor, was able to go to these car audio events. He described them in ways that made it clear he was possessed of the passion.

One such w...

Week Forty- Four – Don Quixote - AND ME!

Oct 27 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
I have proper inherited one or two of my mum’s main drives in life. A deep seated rage against those who perpetrate the stuff that leaves people ‘downtrodden’. That is, bullies. Since I got big enough to menace the West End ticket tout who had accosted us outside a London theatre one Boxing Day,...

Beezy & Barrow Go Bonkers In A Scooby Forester

Oct 27 2014 00:00 | Adam Rayner in News
We don’t often carry such stories but this one is way worthy. In a car scene where someone has a ‘good idea’ and thinks that simply mentioning a charity they support and want to give money to, immediately legitimises any “event” they can dream up charging for, there are sadly very few well-organi...
