Back on the air

on October 7, 2013

The last time I posted on my blog, I’d been interviewed by the lovely Lesley Dolphin at BBC Radio Suffolk. Today, I found myself in what is possibly – even probably – the most scenic radio recording studio in the UK: the Casino on Gun Hill, Southwold, overlooking Sole Bay.

It’s been a glorious day and there were lots of people on the beach – even people swimming. The temperature in the studio – with the door open – was 23 degrees Centigrade. What a fabulous place to work!

I was interviewed by Sylvia Jagger for her magazine programme at 12 noon. She had read my book, Still Caring, and she had some experience of coping with loved ones in residential care so her questions were well-informed and sensitive. This isn’t always the case! I must admit to building up quite a case of nerves before live interviews like these. The interviewer can ask anything and there’s no going back!

Blyth Valley Community Radio, broadcast on 105FM, may be a small concern but I was impressed to learn that there are apps for listening on tablets and smartphones as well as a website(www.blythvalleycommunityradio.co.uk) and listeners come from all over the world.

Being interviewed in Southwold on a sunny day, I just had to allow enough time for a stroll along the beach. And as I walked through the little Monday market on the way back to my car, I stopped off at the fish stall and bought a dressed Cromer crab to go with new potatoes and salad for my lunch.

I reckon that’s a good day’s work!
