My involvement with oral history goes back to the Leicester Oral History Archive, which I joined in 1988. Since then, I have worked with many community-based oral history projects. I have been with the East Midlands Oral History Society at the University of Leicester since 2001 and am currently seconded to the Unlocking Our Sound Heritage Midlands Hub, also at the University of Leicester. I have many years’ experience of giving advice, help and training in oral history. I have helped to create oral history related exhibitions, newsletters, books, cassettes, CDs, videos and webpages. Among many interests, I particularly like recording stories of urban environments, and creative uses of sound.
