Radio publisity

Hi there,

Just a note to say that I am on 5live this evening at 22.15 talking about
Muni. I have a feeling that it is not going to be very serious but any
publicity is good publicity. You should be able to listen to it on the BBC
web site. I even think that they have a digital archive there somewhere so
you will be able to listen to it any time this week but I am not sure how
that bit works.

Noooooooooo.

I missed your interview Roger as I only read your post at 11pm, has anyone
got a recording of it? (I would have recorded it if I had known it was on)

How did it go?

I heard George just now though and I managed to record most of it (in wav
format if anyone wants it).

I caught the last few minutes with George. The usual non-meeting of minds
as they asked him questions about why he does it, etc.

MUni definitely does not work well on radio.

They had a hard time visualizing George riding his “non-saddle” unicycle,
and I think thousands of people in the BBC listening area now picture him
sitting on top of a raw seat post.

Interestingly the interviewers seemed keen on getting this into the
Olympics. Which of course made a good contrast with George, who is very
non-competitive. Funny how they thought it odd that the unicyclists they
talked to were more interested in exercise than competition. I don’t think
any sport gets started without first being an activity people like to do.

Roger says “Yuk!” George probably has a similar comment :slight_smile: I thought
it was fine.

I posted as soon as I knew. The problem with it was it was a really last
minute thing. The bit with George came from my interview and I would have
given an extra 40mins notice if the taxi had turned up on time!

OK, due to great (!) demand, the wav file of the interview with George (I
missed the one with Roger) is at:

http://www.thelambs.freeserve.co.uk/lamigon/sounds/George5Live.wav

I missed the beginning, and the connection went a bit duff for a few
seconds half way through, but the rest of it is there.

The file ended up at 3.6MB, after making it mono and reducing the quality
(it was 14.9MB to start with!).

Can someone tell me if it doesn’t work, thanks.
