Part of the series: Sound Scapes

Come with us on a journey through sound.

This is a recording I made at Woodbrook Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham UK while I was there in April 2017.

I got the idea to release it as a show after listening to hpr2354 :: Night Sounds in Rural Tennessee hosted by Jon Kulp so here it is all 15 minutes of it.

The centre is right by the busy A38 trunk road so hence the constant hum of traffic noise in the background.

I ha e a habit of studying in a back room of my house with only the hum of a fan or some music in the background. I enjoyed putting this on and looping it while trying to trudge through a very dry book on learning Linux.

That reminds me, I should do an episode on more mature adults seeking their first degree. Maybe. I don’t know. I’ve never done anything like an audio recording,,,, but I had never attended a community college before last year either.

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you found it helpful in your studying. Linux Books can be quite dry and daunting with all the unfamiliar language when your first starting but worth persevering with.

You don’t need any special skills to record a show, just a digital audio recorder or PC, Phone, Tablet etc, and the ability to send that audio file to HPR via the net. All the rest can be taken care of by the wonderful team of volunteers who do such a great job with little recognition.

As Ken and Dave often say, you now owe us a show, LoL.
