I was interviewed by the radio presenter Hannah Murray recently, and we had such a laugh together, I almost forgot I was being recorded at the time. That could have proved catastrophic, but hopefully didn’t – though you can judge the outcome for yourselves when the interview is broadcast during tonight’s episode of The Book Show on Talk Radio Europe, also known as TRE.
My husband was quite worried about my tendency to say the first thing that comes into my head, until he heard the interview. Then he said he was REALLY impressed with me.
“Why?” I said. (You have to make the most of compliments when you’ve been married for thirty million years.)
“You didn’t swear at all,” he replied. There followed a brief pause, before he added: “Though you did say ‘half-arsed’ once.”
The Book Show begins at 6pm UK time, and you can listen online by clicking here. I’m the second guest on tonight’s show, so my interview starts about 20 minutes into the programme.
If you’re less easily offended than my husband is, but somehow managed to miss tonight’s broadcast anyway – maybe because you were too busy late-night shopping to listen to the radio – then there’s no need to despair. The show will be repeated on Saturday August 27th at 7-8pm UK time.
