Me on the Radio

So this week I'm putting myself in the hot seat on the Sunday Scrapbook, at the mercy of the wonderful Domestic Oubliette as my interviewer extraordinaire...
I'll be reading a bit of a story, and a few poems... and discussing the theme of "Duplicity in the Writer" - a concept pinched from Dorothea Brande's excellent book "Becoming a Writer"
I do hope you enjoy it and don't laugh too much at my misguided attempts to be all wise and articulate which may well end up sounding more like an awkward platypus in a moth's nursery school.
The usual bat time, the usual bat channel....
(It's the perfect chance for all my past guests to have their revenge.... "Not so easy now, is it?!!" you can laugh as I stutter through my answers etc etc...)
I can assure you the musical choices are excellent anyway... 4pm (4am in Wellington) on Sunday... Liffey Sound.

Hell, high water, I'm going to listen to this.
Mainly because I'm having trouble imagining the pair of you being serious for very long...

Thanks Lily and Titus, hope you're not sorely dissappointed by my wafflings...

Wonder what D'Oub deleted?

I was hoping you might have interviewd yourself and had a row and give yourself a good talking to afterwards in the bar.

I guess we'll never know TFE!

It was the forth secret of fatima - it just slipped out...

And Titus, I am shocked that you think that Niamh and I couldn't have a serious conversation... anyone would think that we didn't have to edit out twenty minutes of giggles the first time we recorded together... we are seriousness itself...
