People always look at me like I've gone mad when I say I would rather do a radio show than comics. But for about ten years I've been captivated by the idea of what a radio show would be like if I did one. Playing some songs, saying some things. Doing some "items". I was, after all, trained in the art of audio presentation by the BBC. I have pushed a fader, I have taken a call "from the phones" - but never in anger. I have edited some waveforms in my time.
Now the age of "Podcasts" is upon us and perhaps I should make one. Just to see if this is a game worth playing. And apparently Garageband 3 makes this extremely easy, even when you do not have a studio to hand. It would be me, at my most egotistical.
The hot flame of excitement I feel today may be the result of some sort of manic episode, but I'll take a day where I'm as giddy as a five year old if it's offered.
Finally, if you like me love radio as a medium, be sure to listen to Harry Shearer's "Le Show" (if you haven't before). The eminent comic actor holds the world record for "most laconic host".
