What To Do After a Radio Interview

2013-09-10 16.20.46 copyIn Dublin yesterday (10 Sep) I did two radio interviews to promote the No Ideas book. The first was with Matt Cooper for his show The Last Word on Today FM. Afterward Elaine and I hoofed it over to RTÉ where I was linked up with BBC Radio Ulster, to be interviewed by Steven Rainey for his show Arts Extra. I think I was nervous during the former, but quite relaxed for the latter, and it might be due to the fact I was alone, essentially doing a phone interview.

A technician named Kevin set me up in a small, basement control room where he checked my microphone level, handed me a pair of headphones, and basically left me to it; before long, I was linked with Steven up north and we proceeded with the interview. When it was over, there was an awkward period in which I sat in the control room, where no one came to say, ‘Right, we’re done, you’re free to go.’ It was then I thought there was only one thing to do: get my phone out…

Here’s the BBC interview —  be aware, it won’t be available for long.

At time of writing, I am unsure when the Last Word interview will be aired, but as soon as I hear, I’ll shout about it.
