Radio Waves: The Interview

A few weeks ago I was on the radio, specifically C103’s My Six at 6 with Martina O’Donoghue. I had to pick six songs and then in between them, talk about why I chose those. Needless to say I found six songs that all led back to Orlando, my book, etc. If you didn’t get a chance – you poor thing! – to listen live or online at the time, the good news (debatable) is that the recording is here. Woo-hoo, and all that. I’ve edited it down to a tidy 31 minutes, about 27 of which are just me giggling. Yes, really.

SOME WARNINGS/APOLOGIES/CLARIFICATIONS:

  • There’s a bit of an echo at the start; it soon disappears.
  • I have a bit of an ‘absolutely’ epidemic in the middle; I apologize.
  • Disney World has four theme parks and they’re working on a fifth. I know this, but live on the radio I got the numbers wrong. Whoops.
  • I know; my laugh is weird.
  • I’ve cut all the songs down to the first verse and a chorus or less, and taken out all the ads. Still, my editing is a hatchet job; I can barely use Garage Band. Sorry, etc. If you’d like to listen to any of the songs in full, you can do so on this post.

      Aw, thank you Nettie! Yeah, I was pretty happy with it. I suppose you’re always thinking I should have said that or I shouldn’t have said that,etc. etc. And did you hear me banging the table in front of me throughout?! Didn’t realize I was doing it! (Or that you could hear it through the mic!) But it could have been a lot, LOT worse… 😉

    I thought it was great! I know how painful it is to listen to yourself on the radio, though. I cringe every time.

    But you came across as very personable!

  2. Andrea "The American Roommate" says:

    You definitely have a smile in your voice 🙂 You give very good interviews, which will be handy when you’re a world famous author and on Oprah!

Ah, go on. Tell me what you think...
