J.A.M.


Old Skool, originally uploaded by Dave Gorman.

The first of my two appearances on Just A Minute is scheduled for this coming Monday, August 6th. Witness my inability! Feel my shame!

Having consulted my trusty Radio Times I shall assume the role of unpaid publicist and confirm it is on Radio 4 at 6.30pm. :o)

And there's more. Should you miss it or have rolled on your sides with so much mirth you simply have to listen again, there is a second opportunity on Sunday 12th August at 12.04pm precisely (and not a moment sooner).

Unless you listen again on line.

Whoops. Yes - that too. I keep forgetting you can do that these days. *hangs head in shame*

Congratulations on winning Post of the Week. It gave me an eerie deja-vu sort of feeling reading it as you'll see if you read my lastest post:

You didn't do too bad i thought. Certainly the audience warmed to you and you were never going to win up against the other 3 and their experience.

Yes Linda! I may have mastered computers for blogger-y type activities, but listening to the radio via them still eludes me. ;o)(Actually, the real reason is because I don't like Real Player much, and I think that's the only option for BBC Radio online at the moment.)

Anyway - I listened to the whole show (apart from the bit that happened in the thirty seconds where I was getting out of the car and into the house)and I can say without any hesitation or deviation whatsoever that you totally stole the show with one particular buzz of yours. (I'd go into more detail, but I don't want to spoil it for people who haven't listened yet!!)

really inpressed dave . you were up against a really experienced panell and did as well as you could . belive me i have heard a lot worse first timers then yourself ! it is not a case of inabilty just a case of being the least experienced . that will change . they would be nuts not to have you on more often , then your skills will get better you will make more of an input . i thought you might sopund a bit nervous but you did'nt . well done !
peace

You were up against the JAM dream team there, it has to be said. I thought you kept your head above water quite manfully.

I thought it was a brilliant show. You did really well. I especially liked the 'giant strides' bit. :D Roll on next week! Hope to hear you on the next series.

I thought you did really well Dave. Of course you weren't on mic as much as the others, but the giant strides thing was funny, buzzing yourself was inspired, and testing your buzzer and mic at the beginning went down well. Given the panel you were up against, the only thing you could really do was play on the "struggling amateur" angle, which I thought you did really well; providing a counterpoint to all the seasoned players. Looking forward to the next one.
