As my treasured Patrons, you have 5 days early access before a public release on Sunday afternoon here.
For a reminder of my morning aboard the Tynemouth lifeboat last week, check out this post.
This is the blurb that will accompany it:
"Published on World Radio Day 2018: Jack Lowe — creator of The Lifeboat Station Project — invites you to meet Wing Munro, legendary Coxswain of the Thurso RNLI lifeboat, the most northerly lifeboat station on mainland Britain. Jack's conversation with Wing was made on 8th June 2016. Wing retired from the RNLI the following year in October 2017.
"This podcast is a tribute to Wing Munro's distinguished and decorated career as a lifeboatman that spanned nearly half a century. Enjoy the pearls of wisdom and wealth of experience that Wing shares with Jack, as well as an introduction made aboard the imperious Tynemouth Severn Class lifeboat on 7th February 2018."
