Video killed the radio star!
As I have said before, I rarely have my telephone switched on during the day to avoid the inevitable cold calling and the even more annoying automatic dialled numbers, which hang up on you the moment you pick up the handset. Yesterday I realised someone had left me a message. When checked my voicemail I discovered that a producer from one of the most popular radio stations in the UK had read my article in the Guardian newspaper (The Word of Literature ) and wondered if I would be interested in talking to them about it. My first thought was panic. How do I get into shape again after the excesses of Christmas? Then I breathed a sigh of relief as I realised that it was talk-radio and not television or other visual media. So I shall be ringing them tomorrow to find out what they have in mind. Perhaps I do have the perfect face for radio after all.
