Weekly diary - week 1

Find out how I've been getting on during my first week as the BBC Cambridgeshire Blast reporter...

Samantha Stewart
have you got a passion for music?
Have a 'blast' this summer!

What a week it has been, I've finally got into the swing of things and the people I work with are just amazing. The building's very big, but I've managed to find out where the toilets are as well as where my desk is. I have a swipe card which gives me a reason to go get lunch - just so I can use it when I return to enter the building – sad, I know.

It's been an amazingly busy week and I'm really happy with the outcome. Everyone’s friendly and I’ve already got so many gigs lined up. Three this week which include, Blackwire @ Man on the Moon, Cambridge and 4ft Fingers and The Vaults @ Met Lounge in Peterborough, so look out for the interviews of these bands next week!!

Also I have an 'Access All Areas' pass to Rockinbeerfest in August where I will be interviewing top bands such as The Stranglers and Wishbone Ash.

For the future I’ve arranged to visit Cambridge Arts Theatre to see what they are doing for the summer, as well as going to Cambridgeshire’s Shakespeare Festival. I’m also interviewing a creative workshop in Fenland called G8WAY.

There's also a Free Running exhibition coming to South Cambridgeshire and I will hopefully be interviewing the cast while they film themselves doing their Free Run.

I have begun to report on a website that involves music and the Oxfam charity. Oxfam's new music download site -

Lastly, I am going to a Club Afrika next Friday to check out the latest clubs that have hit the Cambridge scene.

For the first week I’m as happy as happy could be, I just hope that every week is like this! Watch this space as next week there'll be more interviews and more reviews. This job is the best!!!
