  Mental Health & Covid-19 With the Covid-19 pandemic, lockdowns easing and the continue rising of cases in some areas of the UK, it is natural to feel stressed, to feel anxiety and confusion. First of all, it is ok, more than ok to have a cry. Crying is a good way to release pressure, and to help get things out in the open. No one is weak if they cry, and don’t let anyone tell you any different. I have been suffering with depression for years, not being able to fully shake it. I have found talking to friends a good way to help. At the moment I feel the NHS is under more than enough pressure with things to deal with. There are a number of mental health charities out there that can give help and advice, such as Mind. You can contact them via social media platforms, as well as going to their website at https://www.mind.org.uk and this page can make sure you get the right help that you need   https://www.mind.org.uk/need-urgent-help/using-this-tool Back in 2020, around about

  I’m 46 now, I caught the radio bug when I was 16 when I went to the Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli to visit the hospital radio station there, Radio BGM . It was very interesting and it got my imagination. I volunteered there for a number of years. In 2002 I started recording voice tracks for an online radio station . In 2003 I joined Xtreme 1431 in Swansea University, their AM signal was heard over the whole city of Swansea and beyond during the daytime. I was there until 2004. While there I found out about Laser Broadcasting who were aiming to go for the Swansea wide licence that was coming up.
