celestial radio: a visionary journey
on saturday 19th july artists zo walker and neil bromwick will sail into folkestone harbour aboard their magnificent mirror tiled yatch, the celeste. adorned with over 60,000 one inch mirror tiles, the celeste is the base for the artists' unique project, celeste radio. broadcasting on 87.7fm, the artists have created a special soundpiece for their tour around the kent coast that features music from the heyday of the pirate radio era combined with interviews with people from kent discussing famous visionaries associated with the area such as JMW Turner, [abe]TS Eliot[/abe], [abe]Pugin[/abe] and [abe]HG Wells[/abe]. radios and headsets will be available on the day for people to listen to the broadcast or you can tune in at home or in your car.

This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
