Wowzers, I’m going to be on the wireless.

Should anybody have nothing to do tomorrow between 12.30 and 13.00 UK time tomorrow, Friday 14th November, have a listen to Radio 5Live, a British news and sport station.

You will hear my dulcet tones emanating from the depths of the Mauritanian desert for a few minutes.

Basically the story is, “A day in the life of an old fat bloke in the desert.”

I’ve sent them about half an hours worth of waffling, I’m sure they’ll chop it down to 2/3 minutes, I’ve not heard it, and I won’t hear it tomorrow either as I’m travelling home, but I’ll pick it up in the evening on some form of catch up thingy.

    Mr Brown please see my email to you and @noel, I caught it in flight as it were, pootling along the wonderful Wye valley between Chepstow & Monmouth. Strength to your elbow my friend. Regards JSM

    I gave it a shot, even though I’m not the brightest bulb in the lamp when it comes to the WorldWideWeb. Found BBC’s Radio5Live, and just when I’d started the agonizing process of figuring time differences between the western U.S. and Great Britain, I was politely informed that the “sound of silence” that I was hearing had to do with an equipment incompatibility. Ah, well…. I’m sure you were brilliant, and I hope you had an enjoyable time doing it.

    • I’m not even a bulb I can assure you, it was the clever lot that did it!
      I’ve just walked through the door after a hideous days travelling, but tomorrow when I’m a bit more alive I’m going to try and put the link on the blog.
      It was great fun doing it, I’m looking forward to listening to it, see what they edited out.

    If anyone missed it it’s still on Radio5 Lives website – the program is 5 Live Daily and the piece starts at 2h 51mins. Great to put a voice to the words you write, sounds a fascinating place to be. But 36C is not “too hot”?! Yikes! Great piece congrats!

    • Many thanks, they didn’t play the bits I wanted them to, but no matter, was fun to do. Its a great place, allows me to see things that I’ll never see again in my life thats for sure. 36 is only a warm day there, its regularly over 40,

    If you’re able to link the broadcast on your blog you would qualify as a bright bulb indeed in my book… not to mention a treat for those of us who follow your exploits.
    I suppose it’s cruel to say, but I got a chuckle out of your airport struggles posting. Glad you’re safely home…. between the hotel in Mauritania and the trip home, you deserve a good rest.


    • I’ll give it a go this morning, after a good nights sleep.
      I’m glad the little rhyme made you chuckle, I was furious at the time, delays and missing flights are so frustrating, and people not doing the basic things do get me a touch grumpy. Still, all’s well and all that, arrived home on time in the end, few days here and then off to Dublin for a few beers and a look round.
