Dip – Stradbroke ~ Pop Pickers
The topic for Illustration Friday this week is ‘Dip’ – the playlist is here. I am spending many hours in the pool taking a dip, in preparation for the Great East Swim. Today my treat on my return was ‘dippy’ egg with marmite and marmite XO soldiers; a sofa to hide behind and Dr Who.
Tomorrow Stradbroke pool shuts for Easter Sunday, but never mind; all is not lost. The stars of Radio Stradbroke will be playing songs from 12.00 noon onwards. This is the spot where the crackle of vinyl meets the digital age. The team is raising money for the air ambulance and the local cricket club. You can tweet them or enter a request on-line. Requests cost £1.00 for two songs, they will even read out your dedication. If you are very lucky you will hear the clunk of a pint glass being placed on the decks as the whole thing takes place in the local pub. Catch it now; it will all be over by the end of Monday.
