As you've been in the radio business for a gazillion years...

I'll miss you all

Brynna, Wales: Post-Christmas ramblings/ramble

'Post- Christmas shopping chalking'


(Mum threw them in there because I dropped them on the floor when the car door opened and then stood on around ten trying to work out what I had done...)


Be a tree.

(A grape tree. If that is what you like...)

Pick up a stick!

...if pretending to be on a horse with a sword feels like 'branching out' for you...

(Works for some)

I love Brynna mountains

So cleeeeean

Keep on keepin' on

Even when it's windy

And things seem far away

'cause you always get there in the end

and when you do...

...it looks even better at the top for all the effort you made.

'I used to be a church'

Now I'm a place where people come to peer and walk and take photos...

Salford, UK: Pete Fowler, rockets and art

I wish I could chalk something as amazing as this.

Pete Fowler's 'Magic Morning' was created during yesterday's 'Art is Everywhere' show on BBC 6Music, where we asked listeners to create art while listening to the show.

He was lying in bed, listening to Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine and, well, I guess he then saw some rockets taking off...

Mind your feet, Pete!

MEDIA CITY, Salford, UK: Art is Everywhere

Hi everyone,

If you're awake right now (like me), you should tune in to BBC 6Music and listen to the first of our special art-themed radio shows 'Art is Everywhere'. Heaps of amazing guests are involved (Jeremy Deller, Pete Fowler, Mira Calix, Will Gompertz), and we have lots of ace music to play, too.

If you're up at this ungodly hour, I do not believe you can be doing anything good.

Plus, I ran over to the tram line in the dark to chalk up this message especially for you...

Cardiff, Wales: It comes at a price...

On Monday, I visited Morgan Arcades in Cardiff to annoy my big sister Cathryn...

'Guess who's back'

'Back again...'


...to water this plant immediately.

It's a bin

It's also been ages...

...since I last found

...somewhere good to chalk.

It comes at a price though...

(No, I didn't fall through this floor that that looks like it was made to end the lives of all intrepid explorers)

But right after I took this photo, my foot slid out in front of me, and I nearly dropped my sister's ipad on the floor.



...when I got back to see my sister Win...

(for entertainment, tea, giggles and that kind of thing)


(yes, that's me)

...had been set homework.
