Almost Feel It's OK To Write About Summink Else Today
If there is a Brekkie groove, I do believe we have found it. What a strange business this is though. I remember it was the Thursday of the first week of Drivetime until we began to feel like we knew what we were doing. Maybe that's it, maybe it's a four day thing.
So one week down and who knows how many to go. I can't tell you by the way how much I have enjoyed reflecting on all the different opinions and crits people have had regarding our new slot. A few years ago I wouldn't have had any of it and just buried my head in the sand, alienating any future potential audience but now, if we can get 'em - we want 'em, so why not listen to what everyone has to say ?
The more extreme the negativity though the less accurate the gripe, making it easier for me to spot people who will never see it our way - like the one guy who claimed the "majority" of the Radio 2 Breakfast Show audience were pensioners on low income and often house bound ! What ? Sure "some" of the audience may fall into one, two or even all three of those categories but the "majority" - not the best way of trying to secretly urge other people not to listen.
On my way to the new C4 book club show now. I did manage to read my last 200 pages of required reading albeit the last few in the car on the way there. The book - 499 pages of ghoulish goings on from a lady who apparently before this has focused mostly on lesbianism.
See you on the radio,
