• Dos_Box on the Radio

    Well, if you are in the Presston area that is. I recorded a show on Preston FM where I was the guest on Saturday. It's going out tomorrow morning (Wed 09 Feb) at 10am on 103.2 FM (I'm on for the whole hour). I'm a bit gutted as I had to pick 5 songs and only got to play 3 as I waffled too much
    I'll soon have an MP3 of the show and will upload it as soon as I can after the event.
    Viva community radio!

      I hope not. Besides it was a good learning curve and hopefully they'll have me back. It's a real Heath Robinson affair in there. The individual studios were smaller than the EG office, which is something I didn't think was possible!

      What do you think? "Dancing on Ice", "Strictly Come Dancing" or "I'm a celebrity" as the next move for our media star?

      More like 'Falling on Ice', 'My Left Feet' and 'I'm a Nobody. Can I come in please?'

      A quick look on their website also suggests you can listen live online.

      Apoliogies for the repeat suggestion of listening live. I only see one comment on the front page at the moment.

      Can't get to it - seems their website can't cope. Any chance of an MP3?

      I had played:

      Foo Fighters - Learning to Fly
      John Wesley - 13 Days
      Big Country - We're not in Kansas

      Unfortuantely we didn't have time to play Marillion's That Time of the Night (The Short Straw) and Elbow One day like this due to us talking too much.
