On the radio

If you’ve ever wondered if I speak as incoherently as I write, you’ll have your chance to find out tonight as I make my radio debut.

I’ll be a guest tonight on Sean Holman’s Public Eye Radio show, on CFAX 1070 in Victoria. Within the overall theme of blogging and politics, topics of discussion are to include the Liberal Red Ribbon report and the NDP’s send Jack money to bring the troops home fundraising letter.

The segment will be running from 6:00 to 6:30 PST (9:00 to 9:30 EST), and for those not in the Victoria area there is a streaming Internet audio broadcast available.

I’m debating affecting a British accent for the interview, as I find those BBC radio reporters always sound so authoritative and trustworthy. Still undecided on that point though. I do, however, intend to start writing with a British accent.

Good luck Jeff. Remember to use your Ted Knight voice.

Rex Murphy had a "What do you think of the Afghan mission" on CBC Radio this pm. Started off with Layton and his call to home for Canadian Soldiers,more talk to Taliban rhetoric ( you can visualize him bouncing off his toes) as he spoke. Both General Richard Hilliar and Sen/Gen Romeo Dallaire were part of the discussion too. Dallaire was particulary wonderful in his comments about the total naivete' with Laytons position in this age of conflict resolution. CBC probably has the content somewhere out here/there in cyberspace.

Jeff –- Sorry I missed the show (it was my daughter’s birthday party). Let us know if/when you can get an mp3 of it up. By the way, loved the description of you on Pubic Eye. You’re an “online activist”... Who knew?

Unfortunently I had no way of recording it, and I'm not aware of any archive being available, so alas I suspect my words of wisdom are lost forever. Not that that's a bad thing. :)But seriously, I think it went alright. It was all pretty much a blur, but I don't think I made too much of a fool of myself. At least, I've had no angry e-mails from irate Victorians.
