This is Martin, Danielle and myself celebrating after our first show together on Absolute Radio. We weren't just celebrating our first show... we all had something individual that's worth celebrating and it says something about the confessional nature of radio that words slipped out on air that I would be nervous of typing here. The work/life separation feels more blurred on the wireless for some reason.
I reckon it was nice and relaxed for a first show and while I'm sure things will get smoother here and there I liked its rough-around-the-edges feel. Martin's song at the end - summarising the e-mails and texts that had come in over the two hours was really something to behold. Amazing really.
The listeners do as much to define a station as anything else so seeing so many texts and e-mails come in really did make us feel very welcome. Thanks all.
It wasn't just messages either... there were a few jingles made by listeners too. Thanks to Jerry Mandarin (nice jingle, surely not a real name... gerrymandering... hmmm), David Wilks (very bizarre, that one) and Tom White (made us laugh each and every time we played it) for those. We have some more that we haven't heard yet and we'd love it if you kept them coming in. It set a really nice tone for the show.
If you're not a Sunday morning kind of person, the podcast is up already.
