Here’s a reworking of my favourite track, Almost Home, from my favourite Sheffield musician, Andy Whitehouse, and fellow musician Matt Howden. This is a track I use frequently to front my podcasts and it has resonance with me on all sorts of levels. You might remember Andy from two of my previous podcasts. If you don’t go, and look for the links in our podcast library. You’ll find a full interview in Kelham Island Discs playlist and a major contribution from Andy to ‘A Stent In Time’. https://andywhitehouse.bandcamp.com/track/almost-home-2 email@example.com

Kelham Island Discs No.12: Jack Whitham in conversation with The Urban Tiger
Jack Whitham: Football legend for Sheffield Wednesday, Liverpool, England under 23's and others. A lifetime of devotion to Football, to his family, his talent for writing a good song and for performing them too. His career was curtailed by tragedy but Jack has risen above that through a determination and spirit that encompasses all the many walks of his life.

Okay so this isn't Radio One and I'm not really a DJ. But... here are a few original tracks from people I have interviewed over the last couple of years and one or two others thrown in. The mood is variable, as I say I'm no DJ, but I hope enjoyable. Get your stompin' boots on for some of them too!

Kelham Island Discs No.11: Jorge Ramirez Pozo in Conversation with The Urban Tiger
Recorded entirely in Room 324 by kind permission of the Holiday Inn overlooking Brentford Lock in London, Jorge Ramirez displays vividly why his music and good humour helps to fill restaurants and pubs wherever he plays. Jorge is a long-time friend who I don't see enough of. He also attempted to improve my guitar playing...Hmmmm...

Pearl 9: Arthur Thickett. An extra-ordinary man
Arthur Thickett passed away some time in 2011. Perhaps he'd had enough of our capacity to make war not love. Arthur's is a moving life story of a remarkable man. Here, his loves, hopes and desires are wrestled with on a daily basis. Here also are the things he hated, mostly war and hypocrisy. A more-than intelligent child of his time, struggling to overcome humble beginnings, Arthur chimes for us all. Queenspark Books are available at queensparkbooks.org.uk.

Kelham Island Discs No.10: Stewart Lodge in Conversation with The Urban Tiger
This time the Urban Tiger is in conversation with Stewart Lodge, a comedy practitioner who defies convention and genre. There is a thin line between comedy weird and comedy genius and I think Stewart stands astride that line in a way that I respect and admire. Especially when he performs 'Little Johnny Cash'. See if you can categorise his talent, I can't...

Hi, this is Bill doing his bit for the community. The community in question is Burngreave, an ethnically diverse area right in the Heart of our Fair City of Sheffield. Burngreave Messenger are the local community newsletter who seek to add podcasting to their repertoire. Never being one to refuse an opportunity to spout in public, I agreed to help my good friend Angela Robson by taking down some techie equipment and talking their hind legs off for an hour. This podcast contains many of the voices, opinions and sense of purpose within this vibrant and committed group.

New Jersey Turnpike: Side 2
Hi. Side two of 'Turn the Page' by New Jersey Turnpike, a real blast from 1976! Enjoy again...

New Jersey Turnpike: SIDE 1
Hi. This is side one of the 'Turn the Page' album produced by New Jersey Turnpike in 1976. I bring you this as an echo from my past, along with that of many others, because we are all coming of an age now where these bands and songs are in danger of being forgotten. Never thought of myself as an 'Endangered Species' before. I wonder if the Tiger or the Mountain Gorilla ever share that thought... Enjoy again... and again... and again...

Watch & Wait: 3: Red Stripe Candy
Hi. Red Stripe Candy is my contribution to the Watch & Wait anthology. I have to say that of all the stories I have ever written, this one, certainly, if not the best, I consider to be in the top 3. It is a light fantasy along the theme perhaps that when you have just made yourself comfortable, someone always comes along and tips you out of the chair. No, perhaps the story is deeper than that. I hope you find it so anyway. Thanks for being here, Bill Allerton

Watch & Wait: 4: Out Of Her Mind by Danuta Reah
Hi. Danuta Reah is a multi-award winning crime writer. Much of her work is set in South Yorkshire so just like the rest of us here, it stands for no nonsense!

This track is 'Cheval'. 'Cheval' is the old french word for 'Horse'. Used today it describes a tall, slender mirror that stands free on four feet. Sometimes those feet can be very ornately carved, like the proud horses in the story. The story is about how we begin as a child with an open mind to the magic in our imagination, then as we grow older and have more responsibility we begin to lose touch with it. But don't worry, as we get older still our imagination finds ways to reconnect us with the magic. I hope you enjoy this one Bill Allerton
