Blogging made the radio star

If you are near a radio or computer tonight, or if the CIA is beaming Radio Wales directly into your head, be sure to tune in at 6 p.m. (noon U.S. Central Standard Time) to listen to the "Eye on Wales" programme.

I was interviewed for the programme, as were an unknown quantity of people who are probably more interesting than me.

I think blogging is a difficult phenomenon to convey on radio -- in the finite space that is a radio programme, how does one explain the appeal of millions of substandard writers yammering on about themselves or how much they dislike conservatives/liberals/religions/bands/Bruce Forsyth? I am eager to hear how it all turned out.

If you miss the programme, it will be available on the BBC's rockin' Listen Again feature for seven days -- just follow the link above.

Bah, I missed out on a radio interview AGAIN, I obviously put in a measly performace on 'Wedi 7' when I was about nine years old.

Sounds interesting. Will we be able to understand the accent? (Just kidding...) I'll have to convince Dave that it is something we should tune into.

Crap.... Nevermind. I just looked more carefully at the time... At noon in St. Louis, I'll be at work. Oh well...

Ah, the old 'web blog' explanation. THANK GOD. I had forgotten that one.

Hey, less of that 'ego' stuff, Cope. I am clever AND witty. I do the world a service with my blogging.

I listened to you on the Beeb, last night, very well done!
And you speak Welsh, that is impressive.
