Whisked from home to the BBC studio at Gun Warf Portsmouth christmas traffic was chaos, the radio in the cab was playing Blow the House Down’s  “living in a box” well that’s definitely part of The Little Book of Prison the cell is so small that when you turn the light off your already in bed before it goes dark!!

Had to sprint to the studio just made it in time. Christine met me at the door and we settled in to the live link to BBC Bush House.

Sinita was excellent put me at ease and the interview was flowing well when the fire alarm went off…great…nothing is ever simple in my world FACT!! Well it turned out that someone had set fire to a menu in the one of the restaurants below. I dont blame them you can’t get a decent meal in Gun Warf and you all know the Christmas Party Menus are the same old fayre.

Thank you to Christine, Sara and Sinita for making it an absolute pleasure to be interviewed heres the link it starts 17mins 22 seconds in enjoy



Thank you to Laura Ancell at Radio Solent for being gentle on me unlike the icy winds on a bench at Gun Warf Portsmouth it was freezing…..I did ask if we could get into the studio there but no chance. Maybe they figured that I’d rather be outside in the open space than in a tiny room…possibly right there Laura.

Well it goes out on Friday 9th December at 11.40am and 5.10pm so sit back and enjoy shame I couldn’t talk more 3 minutes dosen’t seem enough time to get into the conversation before its over a verbal version of Twitter…I’m still finding my feet with that also as you might have noticed.

To listen to the interview just click on the link below it starts 2.07.15secs into the show after meatloaf 2 out of 3 aint bad tune
Afterwards he plays born free!!!
