Having just got back from London after spending about six months here in Croatia the concept of “home” has been on my mind. Riding around London was an all too familiar feeling, but I felt like a tourist ! Thing is I’m still without my own room here at Barabrith let alone having a place to set up my HIFI. Sure my room is being worked on by “the builders” and when its done it will my “den” extraordinaire! But as yet I struggle to feel I’ve settled here ….yet!
Still one good thing about my brief visit to Hackney was collecting my first ever bit of HIFI , my ITT transistor radio! It was birthday present for me from my parents back in 1979 (or maybe 78!) and it soon became my secret late night listening to John Peel device. Oh the days! The thing still works a treat even though the ariel came off a couple off a couple of decades ago. Trouble is John Peel is no more and over here I can’t get Radio 4!
