Blog: We're On The Radio!

< previous next >
I tuned into Steve Lamacq's show yesterday at about 4.30pm to hear him saying "We're looking for songs where the song itself describes the dance step that goes with it." "ZOINKS!" think I, "That's 'Do The Indie Kid'!" so IN i emailed. Half an hour later he came back to the item and said "... inspired by a single called 'Do The Indie Kid' by MJ Hibbett & The Validators, which we'll be playing after the six o'clock news". Ah! Also, AHA! Also also, ZANG!!

Thus, for almost the first time, I not only KNEW we were going to be on the radio, but was able to sit and LISTEN to it, and think "WHOOO!!!" for LO! It sounded DEAD GOOD! I especially GRINNED like a LOONIE when it got to the The Music Of The Future bit, thinking a) WE made that noise and b) it's going out live on National Radio!

It was all VERY exciting - I wonder if it'll get played again? My hope: YES PLEASE!

Gary Crowley filling in for Tom Robinson on 6music played you as his first song this evening. As I wandered past the radio, I thought "Christ this sounds familiar" and indeed LO! it was yourselves.
