In the words of @Macthecab its all got too much for one Woolwich Yellow Badge

Yesterday I discovered Podcasting, yeah I know, many of you have been downloading podcasts for years but I never really got involved in podcasts until recently.
I had started listening to a lot of online radio stations such as Collins & Mason’s fantastic show on Back 2 Back FM but the show is aired at a time which is quite inconvenient to me due to the wedding bookings that we do and I end up only catching parts of the show rather than listening to the whole 2 hours.
After finally meeting Collin’s I thought I should make more of an effort to listen to the whole show so I decided to download the show from Podomatic where you can find an archive of the recent shows, I then synced the shows to my iPod, *you can sync them to whatever device you may have) and I then listened to the last 2 weeks shows while out working the cab last night, the obvious advantage is that I can now listen to the shows I want to hear when I want to hear them and I am able to pause the show when a passenger gets in the cab who wants to talk to me.
If you haven’t got into podcasts yet I would suggest you take a look, listen to the type of music and shows you want when you want rather than listening to the bland content that is churned out by commercial radio stations these days.
Last week I telephone LTC to order some parts, I dialled the Brewery Road telephone number and duly pressed 3 for the parts department, I then heard the ringing tone for about 30 seconds which was then interrupted by a voice message which said “the extension you are calling is not answering! Goodbye” and then the line went dead.
I tried calling back and got the same result on numerous occasions, I tried calling back the following day and got the same response
So come on LTC whats going on, do you not want to do business or sell parts?
