Just Me

I was flying solo tonight, Erik putting his commitment to The Evening Post, (as I still call it) first. It was a bit of a blow as when BBC6Music listen, (and Elizabeth Mahoney, the radio critic from The Guardian), they won’t experience the full potential of the show. Our suitability for the 6Music Saturday 10am-1pm slot is based on our double act, as that time slot is very much the comedy slot, having been presented by Adam and Joe, and Richard Herring and Andrew Collins, Andrew Collins and Josie Long and now Peter Serefinowic for six weeks.
Erik will be back next week, and we are also plotting to start a series of podcasts independent of Trent Sound.

I wasn’t totally alone however, as I had a live session guest, Nottingham singer/songwriter Will Jeffery.

As with my solo shows, there was a heavier emphasis on music. I tend to slip back into my John Peel mode when I’m on my own.
