There is a famous scene in the film The Commitments, the hero of the film is lying in the bath day dreaming about being interview regarding the success of his band. How many people out there have do something similar, I known I have, so last Thursday the dream became a reality when I was interviewed by our local radio station.
I had sent out a press realise about the Leek Daily photo exhibition and was expecting nothing more than a quick mention on their “what on” feature, so imagine my surprise (and horror) when they contacted me and asked if I would pop in for an interview on their morning show! I have to admit I was very nervous, I had never been in a radio station before, let alone on air, so sitting in the waiting room listening to the show was like a form of torture. Once in the studio I was immediately put at ease by Mervyn Gamage and Simon Edwards the 2 DJ’s and after a quick chat while a couple of records played, I was on air!!!
