Lyn's radio show

I still think Lyn is utterly remarkable. She has recently got into doing a show on Revival Internet Radio. At her allotted time, she broadcasts for an hour or two on there, selecting the tracks she wants to play. It's right up her street. The amazing thing is the sheer effort L goes to: rather than just play one track after another, she creates jingles and links to go between them on her speech app. It takes her hours, not just to input the text but to cue each link at precisely the moment she wants.

She broadcasts on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, at a time which I'm usually lolloping on the sofa watching TV. On my way to bed last night, I walked into her little studio to wish her good night and saw what she was doing. It took my breath when I realised the effort she was going to, and I had to admit to myself that I could never do something like that. As proud as I am of, say, keeping my blog going for so long or seeing my Master's through to completion, this was effort of another order. When I saw what she was doing, my jaw dropped in admiration.

I hope this doesn't sound patronising because I don't mean it to be. As I touched upon here, this is something she loves to do. But what I didn't realise when I wrote that entry last year was the mind-boggling, painstaking effort Lyn goes to, now on a weekly basis. I simply wanted to recognise something I find utterly remarkable in the woman I love, and to ask everyone reading this to go take a listen.
