Ross Hattaway on the Radio

So bravely joining me on the airwaves this weekend will be the lovely Ross Hattaway.

Ross is a native New Zealander but has been in Ireland since 1989, he can be regularly found reading at the Last Wednesday and Chapter and Verse series, he has also read and been published in Lithuania, USA and Australia, as well as publishing his first collection of poetry in 2006 - which was called
The Gentle Art of Rotting.
His next collection is due for publication in 2011.

Ross's chosen theme is Place and Belonging.

Tune in at the usual bat time of 4pm, Sunday on Liffey Sound - link on the right there, (that's 9 am for my new middle American fans - I'm huge in middle America - HUGE!!!!)

Failing that - catch up as usual on the Radio archive - http://sundayscrapbook.blogspot.com/

Cool! My New Zealand best friend is just about to have her 4th baby. I shall suggest "Hattaway" if it's a boy.

Ok - but Hattaway is his surname - just to be clear here... ;-)

DA - the live site is only open on a Sunday when there's a guy in with the key from the creamary to open the gate...
But jeepers, thanks for the visit Mr!

I kind of wish I'd known that. Traveling 1200 miles just to stand outside shouting "Hello? HELLO? Anybody home?" kind of sucked. People at the pub were friendly, though, and bought me a few pints before I headed back.

Pity about that alright, glad they showed you the customary hospitality
