1647 and

Eddie Mair | 16:48 UK time, Monday, 2 April 2007

a Government interview we were hoping for has fallen through because the minister's department is refusing to allow it to take place on a mobile phone. Another interviewee scheduled for a live has pulled out at the last minute, and a recording I should be doing now for our lead story is delayed as the radio car hasn't got to the guest yet.

It could be a bumpy ride...

    I'll be interviewed by you Eddie, although I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. So I could be a good replacement for the Government Minister.

    Oh but the adrenalin rush of having to think of something at the last minute must be good, no? Should lessen your need for all of that caffeine Eric.
