About Ian Wilson
Hi, I'm the founder and station manager of Wilson Waffling Radio. I guess you could say I am the person who organises and runs the station as well as presenting the Musical, Snuggle and Waffling Shows. I work full time as a Senior Lecturer in higher education and love 80s cheesy pop music!

August 9, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

In this week’s show we feature songs from The Little Shop of Horrors, Aida the Musical and Dreamcoats and Petticoats. I get to indulge myself in the song request segment of the show with a song from Wicked and we have a song from the Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown musical. As always, we have the lyricsand Clues to the Musicals quizzes.

The Waffling Show 5- Recorded on 03.08.16 on Wilson Waffling Radio

August 5, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

No way! I lost internet connection with the radio server half way through the show so, if you were listening live, you would have had a bit of KC and the Sunshine band before I returned – but, like Foo Man shoo – I didn’t return! In this show we had a test to see how old your skin was, an new invention to keep avocados from going brown and a musical pillow. We had guess the theme tune and music from Blondie, Madness, Alphabeat and that classic Human League track – “Don’t you want me”. What more could you ask for from another classic waffling show!

12 hour Live Charity Radio Stream for Cancer Research UK

August 4, 2016 Ian Wilson 1

I’ve never been brave enough to throw myself out of a plane being eventually suspended under a piece of light material, or even run around the streets, through the countryside or through mud with distances that I can hardly walk let alone run. Despite this I am keen to complete a marathon of some description in order to raise some money for charity. Well after much thought I have decided that on Wednesday 10th August, I am going to attempt a 12 hour live radio street on Wilson Waffling Radio. Want to know more? then please read on…

Snuggle Show recorded 24.07.16 – Wilson Waffling Radio

August 2, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Another show packed with cultured chat and chilled out music. We feature songs from Adele, Steps and James Blunt and stories about sharks, the creation of a super hard metal and how the earth got its axial tilt. The anagram quiz is an item of food and the riddle includes something really light but which noone can actually carry – puzzled? then tune in and find out the answer in this week’s Snuggle Show on Wilson Waffling Radio.

Friday Night is Musical Night – Recorded 22.07.16

August 2, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

In this week’s show we feature songs from Grease, My Fair Lady and Les Miserables. After being distracted by Show Boat on the television, we play that wonderful song simple titles ‘Bill’ and the song request this week comes from Phantom of the Opera. As always, we have the lyrics competition which the listeners on Facebook did much better with than the people on Twitter and the Clues to the Musical yet again, proved to be difficult – but not impossible.

The Waffling Show 4- Recorded on 27.07.16 on Wilson Waffling Radio

July 28, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Not even moving to a new server could stop the show going ahead this week! Music this week includes Blue, Black Box and Blondie – honestly the whole show does not just feature artists beginning with ‘B’. We waffle about the recent super hero trailers and have a look at what’s in the cinemas at the moment and including the future releases including the new Swallows and Amazons film! We have the usual gaming waffle and we discuss why you should throw those bathroom scales away, the apps which are draining your phone battery and the demise of VHS tapes! All this and guess the TV theme tune which no-one got – do you know the answer? Add it in the comments…

Friday Night is Musical Night – Recorded 15.07.16

July 27, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

I was initially concerned that this show had too much Disney in but looking back I think I managed to get away with it. As well as some Disney classics we also featured songs from Chicago, The Sound of Music and Phantom. We tried to guess the song and musical in the lyrics game and baffled everyone with the clues to the musical quiz. Ex Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Philips gets a mention and the song request is from the musical – “We will rock you”. Come and have a sing a long – with the musical show, on Wilson Waffling Radio.

Snuggle Show recorded 17.07.16 – Wilson Waffling Radio

July 27, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

This week’s show features songs from Bruno Mars, Take That and Leona Lewis. We also have the regular anagram game – but we have moved onto Food and Drink – and the riddle was guessed by quite a few people so I think it was probably too easy! The cultured chat included hobbies for men (which included maple tree tapping!), a heterochromic marsupial and an update from the Juno probe in a wide orbit round Jupiter. Along with the interesting facts…welcome to the Snuggle Show!

How can I support the station?

July 26, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Whenever you start a new venture one thing which really motivates you is the support that your friends, colleagues and members of the community provide. Without this support, any venture probably would never get as far as it does and some might actually flounder due to lack of support. One question which I get asked a lot is how you can support the station so I thought I would write a quick blog post with some idea, one of which you might be able to engage with. It goes without saying, on behalf of everyone who contributes to the station, we really appreciate your support in any form – so, here’s a big THANK YOU!!!
