The little man inside the radio is talking to me!



For about two years, I was a regular co-presenter on Sandi Toksvig's show on LBC. I also used to make regular appearances on Simon Mayo's show on Five Live, have attempted to plug various publications on just about every BBC local radio station the length and breadth of the land, and was once interviewed by Chris Evans live on Radio 2. And I've turned down two appearances on the Today programme, because their idea of what they wanted me to talk about was just really, really rubbish.

Ooh, get me.

The point of all this shameless boasting is that last night I got a text read out on my new favourite radio programme, Radcliffe and Maconie on Radio 2, and I was more ridiculously, absurdly chuffed than I was about all the above put together. Honestly, I couldn't have been happier if I'd just won Smiley Miley's Milage Game.

Thursday's show, about 17 minutes in, if you're interested. Just after the Fun Boy Three. It's about pies and Edward Woodward. As, really, is my life.

Your pride is understandable. Mark Radcliffe's my favourite radio presenter by a country mile, and his partnership with Maconie nearly matches his tryst with Lard. That said, I do miss random shouts of 'Get to bed!' and 'Fancy a brew, our kid?', not to mention the David Bowie erection sound effect (wooden ruler being twanged off the edge of a desk - comedy gold, never fails).
