The second instalment of new Greenwich borough podcast In The Meantime is up, featuring someone rescued from wandering across Woolwich Common in Monday night’s snow harping on about the rights and wrongs of council propaganda rag Greenwich Time.
Actually, it was lots of fun to do. It’s run out of the Meridian Radio studios at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and is doing just what a community radio facility should be doing – providing a space for reflecting the community it’s based in, and then sharing it with that community. I last set foot in a hospital radio studio in the 90s, when I had a little spell at the now-gone Bromley Hospital station – great fun, but now technology has leapt forward it’s good to see Meridian Radio moving on with it and giving this project a go.
ITM’s different from the Greenwich Podcast in that it’s studio-based and covers the whole borough, so it’s got a different feel to its slightly older neighbour. It’s got loads of potential – and I hope it attracts some good guests to chew over the issues that affect 200,000 people in this splodge of south-east London.
