My radio career starts here (or something)

Listen to me talk about US TV on Radio 5 Live

I was on Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition last night! Woo! Actually, I was on it last week for all of two sentences but they were good enough apparently to get me back on this week to have another go at talking about the coming season of US TV. If you want to listen to my shiny opinions of The Playboy Club, Pan Am, Castle, Parks & Recreation, Terra Nova, Falling Skies, Wilfred, In Treatment, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and – amazingly – Who’s The Boss, fingers crossed the embedded player will let you for the next week at least (don’t know if this will work in the US). My bit begins at 2h16mins in or thereabouts and lasts for about 20 minutes.

    It works from the US. (If it’s a BBC iPlayer thing, generally radio does and TV doesn’t.)
    I’m glad they gave you a good few minutes, but still not long enough. (-:

  • Cheers! We actually got through about a third of the material I’d prepared (you can hear panic in my voice at one point when we jump two pages of script) so I definitely think they should get me back on those grounds alone. It was fun, too!

  • Brill, Rob, that was both informative and entertaining, but what else would we expect from you? 🙂 You should have mentioned your blog name though. Get that in first next time:-) Hope they have you back. They should do after that performance. Well done!xx

    I only caught a few mins on Saturday night, but was interested in what you had to say about US TV, I wrote to the BBC to find out what your blog was called and fortunately Chris wrote back.
    I’m a fiend for US box sets, completely fed up with no more 24, so got into dexter, now looking for the next one, although I’ve not seen the wire yet (yes I am incredibly behind the times).
    great blog btw.

    Well, that was kind of him – I’ll have to thank him for that. And thank you for the compliments – I’m glad you like it and I hope you can stick around 🙂
