"Radio presenter IQ shocker: read all about it!"
I'm not sure what my books
and the material enshrined within them has to do with sport (although
'Uninvited Visitors' does have a chapter about it!) but for whatever reason
I was recently asked to give an interview on talkSPORT Radio. Since I
had been playing at a local jam session until 11.00, I needed a few cups
of strong, black coffee: the start time (and it was a live interview!)
was around 12.45 am!
I don't know if anyone out
there actually listened to this ten minutes of farcical reporting on talkSPORT,
but if you did - whether you believe there's anything in my opinion that
not all of the Moon landings took place or not - you couldn't help despair
at the total ignorance and lack of manners of one of the two presenters.
How different to the polite and respectful conduct of the various US and
BBC reporters with whom I've spoken over the years.
