Old URE Photos (1976-79)

I've posted a fair amount about URE (University Radio Exeter) including this old archived page .

I was contacted by Nick Ridgway who found the reunion post from 2006. He said:

"I've got loads of photos on colour-slide (remember them) from 1976-79, as I was Studio Manager from 1977-9 in the egg-box days. Gimme an e-mail address for the site webmaster and I'll send some scanned-in ones. There's a URE network on LinkedIn."

So here the photos are:

I think this top one is of John Whitworth aka Frog who has been an ongoing presence holding the radio station together for many years.

Zombie Walk

Beach of the Dead; the Brighton Zombie walk
was today, returning for its fith year, though the first I've seen. There were hundreds of zombies, wilth amazing costumes - realy really impressive!

Theme: Zombie - a person who is or appears to be lifeless, apathetic, or totally lacking in independent judgment; automaton.

A parade (also called march or march-past) is a procession of people.

Start point:
Victoria Gardens (Next to The Royal Pavilion)

Finishing Point:
Madeira Drive, Brighton Seafront

Zombie Crowd, with a puppet zombie controlled by a zombie on stilts. Hmm.

Here's a little video I did:

Heroes Run 2011

Sunday morning on Brighton Beach was bright and sunny with a bit of a breeze in the air - perfect weather for a run. Which was good as Heroes Run was taking place - I've blogged about it 4 years in a row now and it is always entertaining.

It is to raise money for Passingiton, a local charity that supports targeted education projects in Africa. You can text (don't know how long this runs for) "PASS11 £5" to 70070 to donate.

There are 2 runs - 10KM and 5KM Adult (to the Lagoon from the West Pier and back again - twice for 10k) and the Mini Heroes 500M Dash.

So up first was the Mini Heroes - with a tiny Superman being the mini-est.

And next up was the main event - the 5k & 10k. Justice Force 5 who have recorded the official HEROES RUN soundtrack

And they're off!

And a few individual highlights:

This Silver Surfer had a full face mask on - must have been boiling

Frank Miller's The Spirit. Again - a hot outfit to be running 5k in

Thor vs Jesus! Its a battle of the Gods with Thor just edging out in front.

This robot had to be the best outfit of the day. Madness to be running 5k in this. Though understandably he was towards the back of the pack.

This is the Running Man outfit

Cutting it short gotta go grab lunch. Some great costumes, raising money for a great cause. Here's to next year!

Edit: Some more photos around the we here, here (love the spidey high 5), here.
