Hard to believe that I'm in the parents generation, but I actually have friends who are grandparents, which is totally ridiculous.

....to my favorite radio station!!!   :)) Radio Wimbledon!!!  :))

Radio Wimbledon's theme tune is called "Purple and Green"  :))
and has been used since 1996 when it was composed by British Composer Tony Cox.  :))

"Keeping you on the ball: Radio Wimbledon, 87.7FM"
"Radio Wimbledon: It's Game, Set and Match for Tennis Coverage on 87.7FM"
"Radio Wimbledon: First for Results, Interviews, Expert Comment, News, Weather and Travel. It's all on 87.7FM"

 
Wimbledon


(glimpses of the old court 1 including the wave at 2'14''!!!!) 

Radio Wimbledon is the official radio station to the annual Wimbledon Tennis Championships at the AELTC in Wimbledon.
 
Radio Wimbledon broadcasts daily on 87.7FM between 8 am and approximately 10 pm during the Championships at Wimbledon. Broadcast from specially designed studios near the Press Centre at the AELTC, it is available in an area approximately within a 5 mile radius of the AELTC under a Restricted Service Licence, as well as online through www.wimbledon.org.

Launched in 1992 it provides extensive commentaries for matches using a team of reporters around the grounds. More recently, the service has been extended to provide dedicated commentaries for Centre Court on 96.3FM and No. 1 Court on 97.8FM. Due to the use of lower powered frequencies, these services are only available by radio for visitors in the stadiums, but are also available online. Radios are available in the grounds, though visitors are asked to use headphones at all times.
 
Since the station has been available online, the number of listeners has increased dramatically around the world to a peak of 600,000. It is perhaps the only station with such extensive ball by ball coverage that is available internationally, particularly as the BBC doesn't own the rights to broadcast through radio worldwide. However, a good relationship between BBC 5 Live and Radio Wimbledon has meant that material is sometimes shared between the two stations. Radio Wimbledon's reporting style is more impartial than the BBC, but there is still some patriotic support shown for British players such as Tim Henman and Andy Murray.
 
Wimbledon was the first Grand Slam tournament to offer radio coverage of this type. Other events have followed such as the Australian Open which launched a radio station in 2000.
 
Radio Wimbledon broadcasts live commentaries from matches all around the ground, as well as frequent updates of scores, results and news. It plays popular music, provides local travel news, weather reports and holds competitions. The presenters are often joined by guests to discuss the tennis. These regular guests have included Nick Bollettieri and Judy Murray.
 
Radio Wimbledon often asks for listeners to contribute interesting questions which can be discussed on air. These can be sent through e-mail or, in 2007, SMS. Listeners can also send comments using these methods.
 
In the evenings, press conferences are often broadcast as well as a summary of the day's play. The order of play for the following day is often announced when it becomes available.
 
When the station is off-air, a repeated "loop" containing a summary of the day's matches is played along with Radio Wimbledon's distinctive theme tune. From 2007, these summaries have been available on www.wimbledon.org as downloadable podcasts.
 
On Middle Sunday, the 9:30 am Sung Eucharist service is usually broadcast from the nearby St Mary's Church. The church has also been the location of the radio mast used by Radio Wimbledon.
 
From the Monday before the Championships begin, a similar loop is used to bring coverage from the Qualifying rounds and a review of the previous year's tournament. The draws are also broadcast on the station when they are announced. [edit] Presenters and Commentators
Radio Wimbledon's main presenters are Nick Dye and Sam Lloyd
The commentating team include:
Gigi Salmon, Nick Lestor, Rupert Bell, Nigel Bidmead, Guy Swindells, Lucy Ahl, Nadine Towell

Good stuff MT, I like Tool a lot, so unique!

So a bit softer then.. Here's the legend:

Ghost Riders In The Sky


I believe no cover could match the original or be better, except Johnny's covers :
Johnny Cash - Hurt (Real HQ - High Quality)

Klemens Werner "Kassandras Fluch"

Encierro San Fermín 10 julio 2012 (El Pilar) [HD 720p] (Embedding disabled, limit reached)


With 3 more days of running of the bulls in Pamplona, without any doubt this has been the perfect running with the bulls of El Pilar on tuesday.
 Lot of credit because prior to them there were the big 3 in the traditional combo of weekend (plenty of people)-monday, the catle ranchs of Dolores Aguirre-Eduardo Miura-Jose Cebada Gago, the bulls of Dolores (the pains) on saturday, the most legendary of them all, Miuras on sunday and the most dangerous, Cebadas (barleys) on monday, the big 3 from ranches in Andalucia.
Then came the bulls of El Pilar (Our Lady of El Pilar, patroness of Spain), the ranch in wonderful province of Salamanca and made the perfect running in a very international event, see the soccer shirts, there's even a Man Utd guy.


Fast and Furious. El Pilar.Ahead.  Wonderful!

simply one of the best spanish singer of all time, and sadly like the tradition with all the female spanish female singers, take it too soon to heaven. deeply missed. 

this is her trademark song, the spanish singer who truly touched and reached latinamerica and the more famouss and loved there.

(the lyrics of this song are unforgettable, but with this performance there's no need of translation)
