MEET AL BEAR

Al "BEAR" Galpin

Hi, I'm Al, thanks for checking out my website.

As well as the radio and podcasting projects found here I’m also interested in football, graphic design and wrestling. I’m keen on comics, country music and chocolate as well as burgers, baseball and bourbon. And apparently alliteration.

I’m a husband to Kitty, dad to Hunter and a Pointless finalist.

LATEST BLOG POSTS

I don't often write things in the blog, if I'm being honest. So I expect these posts are pretty old by now.
Who knows, maybe I'll post something new soon!
