Default Vicki 'all the stations' Pipe on Radio Norfolk

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06g3b9p

Vicki is the 'Tuesday Guest' in the 3rd hour - long interview plus 6 records
of her choice. She's from Norfolk originally.

Good interview with most of the railway content later in the hour.

Geoff and Vicki have a book out for Christmas about All the Stations and are
planning an Irish tour in the future.

Thanks, I'd never have stumbled on that. I'd no idea she was a dancer and
drummer, or that you could do an MA at the Globe Theatre. Interesting how a
temporary job at Buck House can lead to a long-term job at the LT Museum.

I'm sure Roland would approve of the references to Ely.

It appears to requires a "BBC account" to listen on my PC. I'll have to
wait until I can play it on my TV (I presume a TV iPlayer does radio
too?)

It didn't require any acount when I played it.

There's a separate iPlayer for BBC Radio. Not sure if your TV can access
that.

Perhaps your browser has a saved-signin?

Anyway, I've created an anonymous account, and *now* it says I need
Flash Player. Which I don't have installed, as a security measure.

It appears not (apart from Radio1 which is apparently now regarded as a
TV channel)!

Even if it does (I can't remember), I thought I'd see it signing in. But
when I just tried it in a different browser, it did ask me to sign in.

I watched it on my iPad, which also doesn't have Flash. Maybe there's a
different, Flash-free version if you're accessing from a mobile device, as
most don't have Flash? Of course, it's silly for them to require Flash on
*any* device for a purely audio playback.

That's a new one on me.

They do it silently and instantly.

I switched to Chrome, which works OK. Will listen to it later, as it's
time to do other stuff now.

Don't forget to skip the first two hours. I also skipped over her music
choices. So, overall, you need about 45 minutes to listen to the full
interview.

Norfolk's my local station, and I record the 'Tuesday Guest' slot every
week.

Probably 3 out of 4 I wipe as soon as I hear who it is, but there can be
some absolute corkers on it!

If you can get BBC Norfolk on Freeview 719 it is repeated tomorrow at 1pm.
Think you should be Sandy transmitter which is the same group as
Tacolneston.
