NEARLY fourteen months ago my 32 year career as a freelance producer and presenter of radio programmes for the BBC and UK Independent Local Radio came to an abrupt end.


Since then, I’ve received many hundreds of emails, letters, cards and other messages from former listeners, all of whom have said how much they miss my programmes. And still the messages keep coming! In my opinion, such loyalty demands a response in kind and, by the end of June last year, I had already vowed that, if a meaningful opportunity came my way, I would get back on-air.


I’m pleased to report that such an opportunity has arisen and, from next Saturday July 4 and Sunday July 5, I’ll be presenting the lunchtime (noon to 3pm) slots on the easy listening internet radio station Serenade Radio.


Anyone with a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone can listen-in. All you need to do is type into your browser, then click on the “Click Here to Listen” button near the top of the Serenade Radio home page. That will open-up a small tune-in window containing a green circle in which there’s a white triangle arrow pointing to the words serenade radio. Click on the white arrow, sit back, enjoy the nostalgic music and please tell your friends.


By the way, you’ll soon be able to email me at but, in the meantime, please “Like” and follow the Serenade Radio Facebook Page. And you can follow me on Twitter too. I guess you could say @MrNostalja (my Twitter identity) is back!

TEMPUS FUGIT and all that!

Yes, a whole year has passed since my disappearance from BBC radio, but I haven’t been idle.

In fact, I’ve continued my careers as a freelance newspaper columnist, and independent author. And in October of last year – after a seventeen year break – new life was breathed into my TV and film acting career, thanks to a featured role on “Casualty” on October 18. In that episode, under my stage name of Lewis Adler, I played a hapless, disabled man called Timothy Blake. Here’s a link to a show reel of my scenes:-

So, in celebration of all the above activities, I’ve recently launched two websites. One of the websites is titled “Wizard Wordsmith” and it tracks my thirty year career path in the UK’s provincial and national newspaper and magazine fields. Here’s a link to that website:-

The other website covers my activities under my stage and pen name of Lewis Adler and, hardly surprisingly, it goes under the title of “Lewis Adler Actor and Author”. Here’s a link:-

I hope you’ll have the time to visit the websites, and maybe even leave a comment or two.

All comments are moderated by me before publication.

 Oh! And I've been quite busy in the garden too
