Swimming on the radio pt 2

I was on the radio today. I talked about open water swimming and I think it went pretty well. If you fancy it, you can have a listen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01y9hgl

I suspect all the usual rules about it only being available for 7 days apply, so don’t hang about. Although the whole programme is really good (especially the bit about the guy taking a photo a day for 1,000 days), you don’t have to listen to it all if you don’t want to. If you want to fast forward to my bit, I was on after 3 hours and 24 minutes – although there are two great tunes just before my bit – Say a Little Prayer by Aretha Franklin and Mustang Sally by The Committments.

Thank you to Verity for having us on her show.

To top the day off I then went for a swim in the lake at Colwick Park tonight with Pete. A nice, relaxing 2km swim and it was lovely.

Swimming on the radio

I’m gonna be on the radio tomorrow – you should listen.

I’m going to be on the excellent Verity Cowley show on BBC Radio Nottingham in the afternoon (and I’m not just calling it excellent ‘cos I’ll be on it). The show runs from midday to 4pm and I should be on at about 3:15pm.

The reason I’ll be on is to chat about the BLDSA’s Colwick Park swim which kicks off the BLDSA “season” on June 1st. I’ll be on with Pete Hawksworth who’s the swim secretary for the swim.

The great thing is, that in this very clever internet age you don’t even need to be in the BBC Radio Nottingham region to listen in – you can listen here too: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01dkykg
