Radio Radio

Radio City Music Hall, originally uploaded by Dave Gorman.

It's taking me a while to adjust to life after the bike ride. My body was shocked for the first week and a bit of intense exercise and now it seems equally shocked by the fact that it's ended.

I have to be careful - I'm still eating like a man who's cycling 50 miles a day. I could undo all the good work I've just done in a very short space of time.

I was concerned that going straight into a new project wasn't going to be a good idea but as it goes, our first meeting about the new show on Absolute Radio really helped to draw a line under the tour and the cycling. Finding myself being all excited about what I'm about to throw myself into was actually the best way of throwing off the shadow of what I've just experienced.

I'm going to be presenting a show on Absolute on Sunday mornings (10 til 12) starting this week and it's really exciting starting with a blank piece of paper and building from there. I say, 'we' because the first thing we've added to the mix is a couple of co-presenters in the shape of Danielle Ward and Martin White - both of whom are excellent and funny and - most importantly - highly distinctive and definitely not cookie-cutter you-know-what-you're-going-to-get kind of stand-ups. I'm really looking forward to it.

We'd like to make the shows as interactive as possible so do pop along to the show's page on the Absolute site and get in touch - especially when we're on air.

I know what you mean about eating like that... after i'd finished training for a while the signals from my body were still screaming 'eat eat eat!' it wasn't even hunger.

Excellent news about the Absolute Radio programme. Will there be a podcast of it - like the Frank Skinner one?

I too am looking forward to the podcast, since Sunday mornings are spent on the 'club run' -usually a 30 mile cycle ride out to a cafe for a plate of beans on toast, a cup of tea and a slice of cake, followed by the ride home. The podcasts are a great way of easing the drive to work on Monday mornings. Also looking forward to some interesting guests such as those you had whilst sitting in for Mr Skinner. Anyone scheduled yet?

@Gillian: There will be a podcast yes. You can get on to it via the show's page.

@Potteries: We have the ace Alun Cochrane on the first show and some very interesting folk lined up for the week's to come.

Good luck with the new show Dave - we can pick up Absolute Radio up here and so looking forward to enjoying it all. Will have to listen to Show 1 as a podcast as I will be marshalling at our club's duathlon (the Scottish Champs) on Sunday but TLO (the lovely Olivia) and I promise to join in for future shows!

Good luck for your show, i hope it will be as interactive as you want.
