Have my knees stopped knocking yet?

I'm just back from the BBC in Norwich having completed my slot on Radio Norfolk about sloe gin. I was quite nervous, in hindsight, having a strong coffee in the coffee shop downstairs before and then accepting a second coffee when I was in the studio was probably not a great idea. Certainly did nothing to calm my hammering heart at any rate.

It's all a bit of a blur thinking back and the download isn't yet available so I haven't heard it back. I can vaguely remember blurting out the odd sentence which I think were relevant to the topic. I didn't fart, belch, sneeze or swear so think I managed to skirt 'arse of self' territory reasonably successfully. They've asked me to go back "Once we get hold of you, you can't get away!" said Graham Barnard in what I hope was a jocular fashion, so it can't have been all bad.

Adam's task for the afternoon is to figure out how to download the show and link to the blog without stomping all over copyright laws.

I visited the Forum shop while I was there and purchased some Ginger Beer made by my twitter friend Breckland Orchard. I also noticed Lavender Jelly on sale at £4 (yes folks, that's four of your English pounds) for a small jar. I think I've stumbled upon the method by which I made my first million .....


  1. Well done, once you have the link post it along with the 'time in' - I'd love to hear it.

  2. great...if you can't work out how to download the show then just post a linc here so we can follow...I'm dying to hear it.. :-)

  3. I heard it, Tracey was very good. Did not show herself up at all.
    Well done on being asked back. They know a good thing when they see one.

  4. Spot the comment from my Mum .....

  5. Congratulations! Perhaps next time you could talk about Radio Norfolk on sloe gin - that might be an interesting companion piece...

  6. the radio broadcast was great...let me know when the next one is!!!!
