Cover letter for Ingermar Peter Turner

Chapel Court, Hawthorn Street, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5EN
For the attention of the Programme Director - July 2017.

Greetings Dear Programme Director.

Hello, I hope it's all going well for you today. My name is Peter Turner and I live in Wilmslow, Cheshire. 03-10-59.

I'd like to put myself forward for stand-in presentation at your station on a gig by gig basis, as and when required; ideally suited to late evenings and overnights.

I've always liked the idea of the radio phone-in method of assisting with sorting out the world's problems and believe people need to be encouraged to take more responsibility in matters that affect them.

Love the talk radio format but I'm also OK with pop music, B-sides, the 70s to 2010s, alternative music such as unsigned artists... anything, in fact!

Music, radio and entertainment have always been a passion.

What are your thoughts on the DUP pact? Theresa May's £1 billion deal with the Democratic Unionists to be followed by a further £500 million in money's worth. Will it affect the power balance in Northern Ireland's power-sharing government? And, what about Scotland and Wales - are they about to lose out?

I love the idea of the radio phone-in, especially on a dedicated talk station.

WORLD: In addition, it seems the Sunni Muslim – Shia Muslim religious divide, contributing to many of the conflicts around the Middle East is not any closer to a resolution for world peace.

President Putin too, regressing almost to his old ways; maybe not so far back as the Cold War era, but nevertheless to an uncomfortable distance. Especially as he went into Syria in support of the Assad regime bringing into being a measure of opposition to the US and UK's efforts at dealing with the conflict. It has to be said that the Syrian Civil War established an unprecedented flood of refugees across the European continent in search of safety.

I'm happy with remuneration commensurate with experience and FREE to work whenever you have a need. Available for one-off slots. Awesome!


I have a good idea as to where the government should be going on Brexit.

TRUMP: As for Donald J. Trump (as the New York Times like to describe him), we will have to wait and see what he delivers but so far he seems to be diminishing the effectiveness of the Executive Order method of getting things done.

I don't pretend to know the finer details of all the political issues. I mean, not at the level MPs do. But hey, neither do many members of the public. I think the presenter should not be the man who knows all the answers all the time but should be open to influence in some matters from time to time by the caller on the phone. In any case, they would (should) have prepared notes from a previous research.

Making changes

Just about everything the government is doing at the moment is lagging behind where it should be. The various parties have always been uncertain as to where to take their policies. Traditionally, do what you did the last time seems the usual practice and blame errors on the opposition. This is how it was pre-computer age and, as you might have guessed, little has changed since. In terms of decision making and course of direction, the computer age has, in reality, for governments, seemingly made the situation a whole lot worse.

General election 2017

Jeremy Corbyn seems to be on the rise; UKIP has had a knock-back, the Lib Dems are moving a little, the SNP aren't too pleased following GE2017 and, of course, Theresa May lost her (David Cameron's) majority. Finally, a major concern with the Labour party's gains (+ 29 seats) is that people fear that Corbyn might do a U-turn on Trident following his proposed defence policy review planned to take place after being elected to power.

The BIG issues facing our governments today!

Unemployment, homelessness, relative poverty, the prison population, minor mental health conditions, the struggling NHS, out-of-date police training, disturbing discrepancies across the reward systems such as pay scales and grades. The national debt sometimes called the deficit. Frighteningly, none, yes I said none of these issues is being properly addressed. Further, and maybe more importantly, the human dynamic allocation is pressing ahead under the steam of evolution governed by global forces. An analogy to this by comparison to the government would be legislators setting statutes that were out of line with public needs. In other words, the more the law fits the need the more likely it will be complied with and that inclination leads to less administrative maintenance. We have heard the term money and power used many times, but never before this new millennium has an understanding of the relationship between the two been more important.

Mastering your own success!

Most of our problems are really very simple. Take obesity, for example, it is a matter of energy in versus energy out. Your metabolic system will determine whether that results in over or under what it should be. So, to make a start, monitor your eating, balance your diet, and monitor your exercise. Your wish will bring into being a discipline which will chase the vision you set in place when you pictured the new you. Done. Congratulate yourself. You're a success!

I've done overnights on the graveyard shift on music radio, 2 a.m. till 6 a.m.

Please look at my CV (which follows), and see what you think? I am open to any type of arrangement and would love to assist when needed.

In the Beginning - About Etherow Online

Back in the 1980s, author of the blog Peter Turner was listening to the radio.
Actually that's me and I was attempting to expand my horizons one evening by
tuning in to radio stations here there and everywhere to see who was on. I came
across Trans World Radio Monte Carlo and a service called Viewpoint 963 from
the transmitters of Radio Caroline in the north sea. Trans World Radio were
broadcasting Christianity and Evangelism, while Caroline were simply renting out
airtime on a spare transmitter.

On Trans world Radio I remember programmes coming from Eastbourne,
Sussex, England and Chicago Illinois, USA. I was primarily interested in radio
and there was something magical about receiving far away stations. They called
that pass-time radio DX-ing. As for the Christianity, I wasn't that interested
because it was obviously springing from the bible which to my mind is history. I
know, that's what they mean by taking it on faith. How could I test anything
coming out of a 2000 year-old principle? It was ladened with confusion.

Fortunately I came across a programme on Viewpoint entitled 'How Your Mind
Can Keep You Well - The Moment Of Truth' by Roy Masters.
The programme
was originating from the Foundation of Human Understanding (FHU) in Los
Angeles, Calfornia with their head quaters at Oregon, USA.

It is a foundation and doesn't move on from the foundation. Roy Masters has
been teaching lesson one, on the radio, for about 30 years. It was a starting
point where I attempted to disprove everything I heard him say. He spoke my
language, though, and many of his principles hold true today. He once said
"...of yourself you can do nothing...". But I have modified that because you
have your wishful thinking. That is really all you can do: seek permission. So,
of yourself you can seek permission with your wishful thinking - Hope

As for Etherow Radio, the station was proposed to go on air in the early
1980s on 1026 kHz AM. Now, have you ever thought about setting up a
transmitting antenna for the medium wave radio service? For 1026 kHz the
wavelength is about 280 meters. So to be efficient the aeriel would need to
be 140 meters long. In addition there are all kinds of grounding wires that
have to be set in place. I believe these act as exciters for the signal coming
out of the wire. Due to lack of space we had available to us at the time and
of course the need for an efficient radiator, we chose to abandon the
medium wave and go for FM instead. Etherow Radio came on on 105 MHz
FM. That was the beginning; way back in the '80s. Sadly, the station went
into demise and into 'mothballs' a few years later. But the name lives on
today. Etherow Radio - Etherow Online and IPT. We're just waiting for the
second coming. Best wishes from IPT. ℗ IPT 18th June 2015
