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.
