UPDATED 27th April 21:45 pm
I was so excited when a radio presenter from BBC Radio Guernsey contacted me on Twitter and asked if I would be willing to take part in a radio interview on his Sunday morning show. Without a moments hesitation I Tweeted him back to willingly accept 🙂
This was something new for me as it is normally me trying to wrangle an interview with someone I meet and find interesting.
He is a lovely man who puts you at ease immediately so I am really looking forward to talking with him tomorrow morning, Sunday 27th April on his show which is broadcast between 07:00 am and 09:00 am on 93.2 FM for those of you able to tune in. I believe that my interview is to be on around 08:00 am which will give me a little bit of a lie-in but you know me I will probably be up, dressed and ready to go from about 07:00 am.
I was up bright and early, the sun was up with me which added to my general excitement. I wanted to be ready for my call. At about 08:00am Jonathan from BBC Radio Guernsey telephoned me and chatted to get me settled and calm ready for going live on air, I think that he could sense that I was “buzzing” from the anticipation.
Then at 08:11 Andy introduced me and we were off………
Andy made me feel very relaxed and the interview flew by, after it was all over and he had played a couple of my songs I phoned my parents to make sure that I had not made any bloomers, but they said all was well with the exception of one tiny little made up word ….. ( you can find it yourself as I am not admitting to anything 🙂 )
I have received so many lovely comments from my friends here, by text and on my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter pages and can not thank you all enough for the tremendous support that you give me it is truly humbling.
If you want to listen to the interview it is available HERE on BBC iPlayer for seven days from today ( 27th April 2014 ). The interview starts at about 01:10 ( that 1 hour 10 minutes ) into the programme.
Ariane, one of my early blog friends created a picture for me after listening to my interview and I have reproduced here as it was so lovely.
