Here Comes The Sonys.
Morning Dream Team...
... tis the day of the Radio Oscars.
The Sony Awards take place tonight at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It is, as they say, "a big deal" - in radioland at least.
And I have to say it's been a huge deal in our house all weekend as I am hosting them this year and have been constantly annoying Tash with questions like:
Is this funny ? Should I really wear the pointy hat ? Is it alright if I go without food for the next forty eighty hours in an attempt to lose a bit of this lard ?
Tash will be there as supportive as ever whilst Mand her sis' looks after the wee one. Noah has approved the script, although he did take out one joke by virtue of being sick all over it. Tash will be sat with the Drivetime team of course who will be out in force complete with fancy frocks and full make up - especially Jonny.
The team are all gonna be kitted out and ticketed up cos' we ourselves are nominated for two of the gongs.
So do I know if we've won ? Absolutely not - those two pages of my script have been blanked out. I honestly have no idea.
What I do know is that there are some fabulous people coming along to help out and you can in fact watch it all at www.radioawards.org.
It should be a great night - a late night but a great night.
I am genuinely excited and more than a little nervous. It's like prize giving at school but with wine instead of Ki-ora.
Here's to radio and all who sail in her and whether we win tonight or not - long live the wireless - FM/AM/LW/SW/DIGITAL or otherwise.
Have a great Monday gang.
