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!

Snuggle Show recorded 10.07.16 – Wilson Waffling Radio

July 23, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Back on target with this show – although I think you had two weeks of it playing as a recording on the station…ooops! Despite the hot weather we have been experiencing recently in the UK, we start the show with Cloudbusting by Kate Bush and have the NHS Choir singing Bridge over Troubled Waters. We have an update on the Juno probe as it orbits Jupiter and discuss if you match the personality linked to the day you were born by the 1838 rhyme. Don’t worry, we also manage to squeeze in the riddle and the anagram game – so much in one show! How do we do it!

Friday Night is Musical Night – Recorded 08.07.16

July 22, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

In this show we enjoy the music from Blood Brothers, Cats and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. The song requests are from musicals which I have never heard of, let alone seen, but both were great choices and we discuss whether we can play operas and operettas on the musical show. Coupled with the regular features of the lyrics game and clues to the musicals, it a show that you will certainly be singing along to!

The Waffling Show 3- Recorded on 20.07.16 on Wilson Waffling Radio

July 22, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Well, I’m sure there is a saying that if something happens three times in a row then it has become a thing – or am I making that up? This week we waffle about the hot weather, what is happening in the gaming world and top films. Also – what are your favourite books and are you able to guess the TV theme tune from just the introduction? All this and some classic pop music including Wham, Bucks Fizz and Kelly Clarkson.

Snuggle Show recorded 03.07.16 – Wilson Waffling Radio

July 22, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Sorry for the delay in uploading this show but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the chilled out music from The Osmonds, ABBA, Will Young and Travis. The interesting facts include the unique event which happened on the 18th February 1979 and why should not use the word ‘pants’ if you were ever back in time in the 1880s! There is also the regular riddle and the anagram game, so why not grab a pen and pencil and listen in.

Be part of the dream?

July 17, 2016 Ian Wilson 1

Stealing the famous quote from Martin Luther-King I would like you all to know that I have this dream. It’s not a big dream or even one which encompasses world peace. It is in fact quite a small dream and one which, when compared to Martin Luther-King’s quote, I feel quite inadequate actually quoting him. When I started along my journey in Radio Land I knew that I wanted to present but I also had another aim in mind. With the station becoming more established this aim has rose to the surface and, during the last week, I have been working hard to start to make the dream become a reality – what is it that dream? I want you to become part of the team!

Joining the Station: Preparing your show notes

July 16, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

There is quite a gap between having the idea and concept for your show to actually broadcasting, and most of this time is taken up with planning and preparation with quite a lot of energy thrown in for good measure! In order to ensure that all your shows go as fluid as possible I recommend that you take the time to plan these in detail. In order to help you with this, here is an insight to my own planning process and the software I use.

The Waffling Show 2- Recorded on 13.07.16 on Wilson Waffling Radio

July 14, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Yes it managed to make it to a second show! In this show we had music from One Direction, the hip gyrating Ricky Martin and the Five Young Cannibals. In the waffling segments we looked at the top five games currently being played, the new Overwatch Hero – Ana and how far would you go for beautiful skin? All this and the Top five quiz and Guess the Theme Tune! What more could you want from a radio show? – and don’t shout prizes!

Joining the Station: Webpage content

July 13, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

So you have your show created**, your software organised ** and you are almost ready to start broadcasting but wait, there is something else you can do before you actually click the LIVE button to support your own show and let people what is happening. Don’t worry, this isn’t a huge list of jobs to do and they are all simple, but does require an image of you, so get ready with that camera!

Joining the Station : Software

July 13, 2016 Ian Wilson 0

Whenever you start a new project there are always several things which can be barriers or, if we let them, excuses. Setting up an internet radio station IS expensive and can take loads of time and, I talk from experience here, energy. However, if you are looking to join the station and have your own show then I have hopefully removed as much of the cost of broadcasting for you as possible. So, no excuses, here is the software you can use to get online and sharing your show with the world!
