Peadar O'Donoghue, Total Feckin Eejit, on the Radio!!!

What better way to say goodbye to the Sunday Scrapbook and all its joys than to get a really famous, mysterious and supercool guest to help me see it out?
(Pat Inglesby wasn't available, so Peadar helpfully stepped in)

I am really grateful to Peadar for agreeing to come in and take us into his world for an hour of intrigue and mind-bending insight during his show, which is based on the theme of

"Certainty or Uncertainty, Depending"

Peadar needs little introduction to most of ye as the original poetry bus driver. He authors the World's Greatest Blog also known as "Total Feckin Eejit the people's lost republic of Eejit" over here, (a site that is frequently responsible for uncontrollable outbursts of hilarity in my life, and is safest read alone) and is an artist, poet and photographer of great talent. I am really priviledged to have him on the show as my very last ever guest, and know you're going to relish the time with him as much as I am...

And now the bio:

"Peadar O Donoghue, known affectionately by his online followers as TFE, Peadar is a photographer, sculpturist, figure skater, golden shorts wearing badminton player, three times winner of the "Drinking champagne without letting bubbles up your nose, while playing badminton championships", he once wrote an entire novella in yoghurt on the side of a hill deep in Co Wicklow - so deep that he had to use the yoghurt lids to signal a passing aeroplane to come to his rescue. His poems and photographs have been published in The Shop, Revival, The Stinging Fly, The Dubliner, Magma, Poetry Ireland Review, and he is editor of "the Poetry Bus" magazine and founder of the original poetry bus which has been touring the world since mid 2009 and is showing no sign of running out of petrol yet."

I'd say this one is unmissable. Tune in on Sunday, 96.4 fm on Liffey Sound - weblink to listen live on the right there, 4pm (11am in Miami), or catch up on the Sunday Scrapbook archive (http://sundayscrapbook.blogspot.com) as always, sometime after.
