"From the beginning you have created all things
and all your works echo the silent music of your praise.”
Eucharistic Prayer G, C of E Common Worship
It’s fitting indeed that we should have spent the weekend saluting the courage of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins in the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. I watched the BBC4 documentary on Neil Armstrong on Saturday evening and, in these days of endless safety standards and testing, it was extraordinary to hear how much ‘first-time risk’ was taken on that first flight.
The Google search engine has had a short animated video over the weekend with a voice-over from Mike Collins, and he spoke of the strange sensation of being on the dark side of the moon, as in the image to the left: one person alone, separated from the then three billion on earth.
Closer to home, this week we embark on a whole new experience of ‘first-time risk’ as a new Prime Minister - almost certainly Boris Johnson - is chosen to embark on a definitive separation from the European Union. So please READ ON .. as this week we turn to more earthly matters of negotiating our own safe landing in unfamiliar territory.
Please note that you're asked to sign in (as a one-off event) when listening to Share Radio, either as our live stream or podcasts, or for listening to Share Music via our website and/or apps. It’s part of our transformation, to make our service more relevant and personal for listeners: and it’s made possible by being 100% online.
After you first enter your email address and have activated it, you shouldn't have to enter it again - as your computer or mobile device will remember that you've signed up. It’s not unlike BBC i-Player which is also asking listeners to say who they are.
However we are also entering everyone who signs up and activates into our fortnightly prize draw for an internet radio, pre-set for Share Radio and Share Music: so there’ll be a chance to experience one of our Ocean Digital WR-220s which respond to a simple on-off button.
Share Radio online is accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.
When you just need some relaxing background music for reading, writing or entertaining, Share Music is there with an almost unbroken flow of instrumental folk music. It's a great complement to Share Radio, and if you buy an internet radio from us you'll find both Share Radio and Share Music preset and all ready to go.
Share Music has a great mobile app, Share Music UK, which displays information on tracks played.
In a new partnership with publishers Harriman House, Share Radio has produced its first audiobook 'Superinvestors', written by Matthew Partridge and read by some of Share Radio's best known presenters: Simon Rose, Fenella Fudge, Glen Thompsett, Ed Bowsher and accomplished actor David Ricardo Pearce, whose ancestor is featured in the book.
Here's your 100% internet Ocean Digital WR-220 radio, pre-set with both Share Radio and Share Music channels!
With access to over 15,000 more radio stations across the world.

The main set of proposals are as follows:
