April 24, 2020
The Anti Virus Show #5
This show, presented by Dave B (aka The Merlin) offers a distraction from the events and situations that are going on around us at this present time.  The music featured in these programmes is wide ranging in its style but always contains some sort of link to The West Country (either direct or indirect). So sit back and listen to the latest show from Ilfracombe's Capstone (internet) Radio

The Anti Virus Show 4.1 (it was 4 but there was a little glitch that needed ironing out)
The show that allows us to escape for an hour or so and make no mention of the current situation in which we find ourselves.  This show has music from a number of artists that I have had dealings with in both the past and more recently, including but not limited to Lyvia Pye, Afterlife, Last Word Dogs, Maggie Davis, Mike Evans to name but a few. I really hope that you enjoy it and as I say in the show if it awakens an idea that you would like to do a regular show for us, then please drop me a line to Hope that you enjoy this new show.

The Anti Virus Show #1 210320
I decided that since I was going Stir Crazy in the house that there were probably a lot of people less fortunate than myself at this time, so I decided that I would head back into my radio space and create this new show in the hope that it will take people's minds off the current situation in and around Devon and the rest of the World. Have a great day,  DAve x

The Spirit Of Yule
This song was created as a stand alone poem - but at the time of writing it I had no idea what it was going to lead to............ it started with Celia Farran (American artiste / performer) requesting permission to turn the poem into a song and record that song. That performance reached the #1 spot on Reverbnation very quickly and has hit the #1 slot in subsequent years. Then in the following year I was lucky enough to meet and spend time with Celia in Glastonbury and ultimately the poem has been responsible for inspiring 4 albums of poetry / music.
