The Desmond Shang Interview

Radio Riel was on hand at Dr Dob­b’s Island on 18th Decem­ber to record the Founder and Guvnah of the Inde­pen­dent State of Cale­don, Mr Desmond Shang being inter­viewed by Mr Zig­gy Figaro of GridTalk, a pro­duc­tion of Infor­ma­tion­Week, part of the CMP pub­lish­ing group. The fas­ci­nat­ing inter­view cov­ered a great deal of ground, from the foun­da­tions of Cale­don and before, to plans for the future and var­i­ous aspects of life in Cale­don today.

With kind per­mis­sion of the par­tic­i­pants and copy­right hold­ers, we are pleased to make this pro­gramme avail­able to our lis­ten­ers.

To hear the Desmond Shang GridTalk inter­view, please click here. The pro­gramme runs for approx­i­mate­ly 45 min­utes and will stream with­out requir­ing pri­or down­load.

The inter­view was con­duct­ed via SL Voice and as a result the audio qual­i­ty leaves some­thing to be desired. In addi­tion, the occa­sion­al hia­tus and tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ty have been edit­ed out and the entire record­ing tight­ened up, although with no loss of con­tent.

We will also be broad­cast­ing this inter­view on stream (tim­ing to be announced).

    Thank you to Mr Mer­lin and Radio Riel for post­ing the Guvnah’s inter­view!

    Are you old enough to remem­ber Ron­ny Aldridge and his “two pianos”? One was a U67 and the oth­er an STC-4021 with a crin­kled diaphragm. Now, why did I think of that?

  3. Elrik Merlin says:

    Well, a lee­tle bit before my time, Sir, but of course I am acquaint­ed with the devices.

    I can assure you that nei­ther was employed in this case (and I used an SM58 for the announce­ments).

    Per­son­al­ly, I pre­fer a coin­ci­dent pair on piano. 🙂
