zan lowe read an email I sent him, Can't remember what I actually wrote but I remember him saying GOOD SHOUT HILA
on playing Nickleback once years ago. She replied thanking me for my sarcasm. She's still on radio one.
Who's the winner eh ?
no, wait a minute, her?
yeah, no, um??...
when my suggests got read out on son of Cheesely.
I remember when you had to actually call in to the show and leave your message with the producer for Steve Lamacq to JAG your indie band on his evening session show
where have all the good times gone?
I spoke to John Peel years ago, I rang up to request Babes In Toyland - Catatonic and expected to get through to a researcher/producer. Peelie answered the phone, I was a gobsmacked 16 yr old.. Thinking back not surprising he answered given that it was 1.30am..
And he played it the week after as well !
and dedicated Avril Lavigne's 'Girlfriend' to me
when we were working late in the studio at university. Mary Anne Hobbs was our favourite, and she used to regularly play songs for us. Other than that, we used to enter the Cheesily Cheerful Chart Challenge a lot.
And I was nearly, nearly, on Radio1’s Mercury Prize ‘shadow jury’ back in 2002. I wrote a review of an album on their website and it was voted one of the favourites, meaning that I got shortlisted. I was phoned up by one of the producers, but then my university registration clashed with the date of the awards night an I couldn’t go. Boo.
Also, I can’t really say too much yet, but the Guardian’s Music Weekly podcast on the 26th September should be awesome.
