I’m on the wireless*

Posted on | January 20, 2009 | 8 Comments

* In the days before Web 2.0 and Twitter and such, the wireless was what old-timers called the radio**

** In the days before DAB and podcasts and such, the radio was a device that sat on your kitchen windowsill and received crackly broadcasts of news, The Archers and popular music of the day.

Anyway, BBC Radio 4 are broadcasting a new series of their sketch show, Recorded For Training Purposes, over the next few weeks and one of the episodes will feature one of my sketches.  If that sounds vague, that’s ‘cos it is.  They seem to be terribly busy sticking all of the various bits together and haven’t been able to say when mine will appear.  I have to sit by my computer, obsessively refreshing the page with the running orders until I see my name appear, which is fine – might as well be that page as any other.

UPDATE: I really should have mentioned that the show, Recorded For Training Purposes, is on BBC Radio 4 at 23:00 on Thursdays.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
