The ego stepped smartly in today to prevent me from saying "no" to another job - and as a result I find myself preparing to appear live on local radio tomorrow (can you "appear" on a radio programme?). Apparently the tie-in with Mod radio means the local chaps (a genderless word in my current vocabulary) have been given more air-time than they know what to do with, so they quickly hunted round the voluble and the brass-necked and there I was! If you want a wee insight into the Mod in Dunoon, by the way, you can find it here, courtesy of Brian Morton.
I'll be talking about writing poetry, reading some of my stuff, and, I think, having some of my choice of music played, if I can find the relevant CDs in time. The prog goes out at 10am on 87.7 fm - but I think you have to be pretty close to Dunoon - or maybe in a Gaelic area - to get it.
But meanwhile I have a dinner party to cook for!
