First Time For Everything.

What do you do when you get into your Car? For me I turn on the Radio (when an annoying advert is not on). I find listening to the radio one of my favourite things when driving. Have you ever driven with the radio not on? It's strange and you do feel sort of lonely.


So did I EVER think I would be on Radio? Of course not. I am a listener, not a broadcaster. In all honesty I have never really thought about the person behind the microphone broadcasting shows you can't see. This all changed when I was approached by a guy called Jon through Twitter. He works for my local hospital radio and asked if he could interview me about my job, blogging and hobbies etc. When he first asked me I was hesitant. I have nothing interesting to say and who would want to listen to, effectively, a nobody.


In the end I am so pleased I said yes. It was an experience and certainly something I have now written and crossed off on my bucket list. On Sunday I did it and Jon was a great interviewer even if I was a little nervous at first. I was very quickly settled and loving it.


I also got the pleasure to hear a local unsigned artist sing in front of me. If you ever have some free time her name is Tiger Lilly and she gave me her album, which I have to say is very good. It has currently replaced the radio in my Car! Check her out here

Oh and by the way if you ever do go on radio don' t dull yourself up. I did haha. I wore a nice little dress and made sure I appeared decent. It was not until I was in front of the microphone I realised I could have worn my PJ's if I wanted to (not that I would of course).

I really enjoyed myself and thank you to those of you who tuned in and sent in messages. You can listen to my interview here on a podcast. You don't need to download it, just click play and you'll be able to listen. Thanks again Jon!


There's a first time for everything and certainly not something I thought I would ever do. I hope you enjoy :)

That's so awesome!!! My little college town doesn't get may good radios stations, so I usually just have my ipod plugged in.. but I always have something on. Being interviewed by a radio station would be awesome!

How fun! I did a couple of radio interviews in college as promotion for our upcoming musical theater productions. I really do love the 'it doesn't matter what you wear' aspect of radio.

LOL at the woman beside you in the last photo though - she looks pretty grumpy.
