David & Christina Show Episode 37 – Feels like Christmas plus interviews with Andrew Nebel MBE and Neon Tapehead

Welcome to the David & Christina Show.

As the weather turned snowy at the time of recording, we both reflect on the good times of winter weather as Christmas is only 3 weeks away.

On the Corona Diaries, David talks about the exciting news of the Pfizer vaccine and how people should never underestimate him.

David & Christina welcomes back Andrew Nebel MBE about the latest update from Lakeside Healthcare Stamford Patient Participation Group (PPG). In this statement:

The PPG for Lakeside Healthcare Stamford welcomes the efforts being taken by  Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to ensure St Mary’s surgery stays opens by helping the practice negotiate a new lease.

The surgery had been announced to close on 2nd December, but the CCG has not provided permission for this to happen so we hope it still remains open for patients.

We are very pleased that a gazebo awning has recently been installed at Sheepmarket for those queuing for prescriptions or other reasons. And we also understand the dispensary at Sheepmarket is being extended which we hope will mean prescriptions can be dispensed more quickly to ensure the queues are short enough for patients to stay under cover.

However, we hope the St Mary’s surgery hasn’t stopped dispensing prescriptions otherwise all its patients will be ending up in the Sheepmarket queue and the problem will recur.

Long term we hope the CCG’s strategic review of primary care in Stamford will recognise that having a monopoly primary care provider for one of Lincolnshire’s largest and expanding practices is not ideal and competition from an additional practice can only result in a better service for patients all round.

Christina interviews Neon Tapehead who are a funk, soul and R&B band from Moscow, Russia.

The group is spearheaded by bonafide ‘synth-head’ Dmitry Ursul after he acquired his first synth back in 2016, forming the group later that year with drummer Aleksandr Kovalchuk, lead singer Maya Shonia and Dmitry Votintsev on bass.

With music inspired by 80’s electro funk, r&b and soul music along with early house and nudisco, their mission is to bring fresh new vibes and musical creativity by combining the finest elements of old-school era retro synthesizer music, with modern music production techniques. Other key influences include artists and groups such as Kool & The Gang, Zapp, Con Funk Shun, The GAP Band, and Rick James.

After spending the last few years playing shows and gigs in Moscow and other cities across Russia, they dropped an exquisite demo into NexGen Music who immediately recognized their talent and snapped them without a second thought. Now part of a larger music family, the group has the platform and support that they have been craving to help them achieve their musical ambitions.

Neon Tapehead is a unique combination of past and present music + fashion, with groovy beats, retro synths, modern sound production and punchy vocals. Dare we say they are fun, exciting and chic!!

Hope you enjoy the show.

David & Christina Show Episode 35 Part 2 – Interviews with Ryan Murrant and Justine Charlotte Milne

Welcome to part 2 of The David & Christina Show.

When David Snape shared a post on our Facebook page recently, little did he realise that he would inspire Christina Groombridge to not only want to invite them for an interview on our show, but it has given her the confidence to want to pursue this for herself. To feel and look like a sexy mama. To be comfortable and confident about about herself and her own body.

In order to piece the story behind the photographs together, Christina talks to the photographer behind the camera. Ryan who has had passion for photography since childhood, decided through his business, to provide a personal package to help be a part of someone’s journey – to help his clients get gain back their self confidence and be comfortable within their own body through photography. Ryan also offers a diversity of photography services and packages that can be tailored to the clients specific requirements – from weddings, to family photos, to business marketing – anything is possible!

Christina has the opportunity to talk to an amazing young lady, Justine Charlotte Milne, who is the sexy mama on the photographs. During the beginning of when the world was hit with complete lock down, Justine talks about her personal trauma when her mum suddenly passed away from cancer. Justine met Ryan when he too was going through his own difficult time. Ryan having only just having started his own photography business in February 2020, also suffered a trauma of his own. After having made the brave decision to change his career path in order to follow his dream and improve his mental well being, lock down hit. After the initial financial shock, Ryan decided to take his skills, camera & himself and started taking photographs of his neighbours standing infront of their front doors to raise money for charity. It was through this, Ryan met Justine, Ian and their 5 yr old son Archie. Having both studied photography, they learnt that they shared a mutual interest which developed into a friendship. Through ‘talking’ and finding out about the different photography shoots Ryan did, he inspired Justine to want to book a photo shoot. Not only did Justine do this for herself and her confidence but she knew that her mum would of encouraged her to ‘Just do it’ – ‘Be yourself’ – ‘You are beautiful’ – Justine was brave enough to allow Ryan to photograph her not only in her own sexy clothes but in her underwear. These amazing photographs have given Justine the confidence within herself and her own body to inspire others to do the same.

So if Justine has inspired you to want to do the same, please contact Ryan through his Facebook page where you can access Justine’s photographs.
