Put yourself on the PM listener map!

Eddie Mair | 15:07 UK time, Monday, 10 December 2007

We'd love to know WHERE you listen to PM. Then we can put you - and all our other listeners on the big PM listener map. It's all being organised by our interactive, hyperactive sister programme iPM.

Taking part is simple: Click here!

Please don't add your postcode on the PM Blog or the iPM Blog - instead please follow the simple instructions here.

    Eddie - I am in the Republic of Ireland. We don't have postcodes outside Dublin. What should I do?

    Idle query, Paddy; are you in the Wicklow/Wexford area?

    Oh, Eddie...please tell me I don't need to have a TV license to listen to the radio??? Otherwise, I might be under severe pressure to get a TV ... and radio listening in this household will subsequently decline ...

    Eddie – This evening I was listening to PM whilst in bed with my 22 year old mistress, we were celebrating her success in the Miss World contest.
    Of course this is not true – but as I believe your interest may be part of this government’s addiction for surveillance, it is my attempt to corrupt their database.

    Does this survey accept entries sent via a Finnish anonymising service?

    For some reason I am being reminded of the Prayer of the poor poet to the capitalist: 'Open your wallet and repeat after me, Help yourself'

    As a matter of interest, what do you want this information *for*? To show where your listeners are, right. For what purpose? To make a map. Er, yes, and to do what with it after that?

    wot, me, cynical?

    I thought the point of it is that it's a pointless bit of meaningless fun - should I change my nom-de-frog to Pollyanna?!

    At the risk of stating the obvious - Eddie didn't have to ask us for our postcodes - and we don't have to tell him ...

    Now sid - listen carefully. I was having a nap - with Eddie on - between 5 and 6 but woke up 3 times and heard him harping on 3 times about it.

    As Gillian said - it's all pointless and meaningless. We will end up with a map - presumably when you hover the mouse over it will reveal that you are a listener in that area.

    Now whether our names will appear, I know not?

    I have a feeling that there will be more dots in Scotland than in England.

    Bea @4: Fear not, radio is free.
    For the paranoid: the TV Licencing people failed to make use of the Channel 5 re-tuning exercise about 10 years ago, when the nation's TV's were re-tuned without checking to the licence register. I doubt that anyone is going to try to sort individuals from anything so vague as a postcode. If, like me, you have no TV licence, then you are already identified.
