Show #68: And Now For Something Completely Different…
Special Guest: Graydon Radford
On this show we talk to Graydon Radford, retired Army nurse, Morris Dancer and the heart & soul behind the mighty @shrewsmorris Twitter account.
Since the Autumn of 2012, Graydon and the Shrewsbury Morris side have built a 20,000 strong, highly engaged community on Twitter (as at May 2014). With a focus on the twin passions of Morris dancing and Shrewsbury, they support local businesses, Morris sides all over the country and the beautiful county of Shropshire.
We talk to Graydon about his approach to Twitter, how he keeps such a large and diverse community engaged, what the benefits are to the Shrewsbury Morris organisation and pick up some great tips and hints on building an online community.
In the interests of full disclosure, we should note that the interviewer this week is Cathy Brown, also a Shrewsbury Morris member. There may be sticks, bells, mandolins and melodeons at any point!
