Radio Debut

June 17, 2011

Despite my best attempts and excuses to try and back out, on Wednesday my lovely friend Kat and I headed off into Southampton to talk on the Katie Martin Show about reaching the finals in The MAD Blog Awards. Appearing in the newspaper was one thing, but talking on the radio really made me nervous. However, Kat did her best to calm me and Betsy (who was totally the star of the show) came along for her first radio appearance at just 3 months old!

Thanks to Kat for the photo

However, the whole experience wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (although as Kat pointed out afterwards, we did manage to get through the 15 minute interview without mentioning the actual name of the blog awards once! Doh!). I have to say a huge thank you to Katie and the show’s producer, Rebecca, who were really warm and welcoming and immediately put us at ease, taking a genuine interest in us and our blogs. I haven’t listened to the show back yet (big wimp!) but if you’d like to listen you can hear us by clicking on the link below.

    Great interview Amy, congratulations! I’ve just listened all the way through (including the horrendous Beautiful South song! Good job BBC Solent have more interesting guests than their song choices!) I bet the girls were excited about their famous mummy. Good luck with the finals! 🙂 x
