|Not me - but it might as well have been|
I have decided to try and get my thoughts about speech radio - and most notably comedy and drama - scrawled as coherently as I can on this virtual toilet wall.
I've never done anything like it before.
I have probably listened to the radio every single day of my life since I was a tiny child - I've been entertained, informed, amused, aghast, impressed and deflated by the sounds I've heard. This is the approach I wish to take with my blog - a listener with something to say.
And hopefully a listener who can persuade, encourage and tempt non-listeners into a world of information, stimulation and imagination.
Taking the piss or pointing out short-comings is easy. So I'll probably do that at first ... but what I really want to do is have something constructive to say about an aspect of popular culture in the UK about which I care passionately.
I have no idea if anyone will ever read this - but there's little point in the false modesty of thinking "I'm doing this for me" - I already know what I think about stuff. I want to find and converse with others who might share my point of view - or oppose it.
I just hope I can make it interesting (and short!) enough to catch somebody's attention.
