Radio Ga Ga

If you are interested, I have a number of radio interviews lined up to promote the book. There hasn’t really been any serious effort to raise awareness of ‘Life & death on the streets’ because the Christmas period is a bad time to do it, so it’s all kicking off now and I’m going to be busy by all accounts.

Here is the list if you want to listen in, otherwise I will try to stick the podcasts onto the blog and you can download them any time you like. My first interview took place on Friday for BBC 3 Counties Radio – you can listen to that here for the next few days only. You need to click on the LORNA MILTON show and scroll forward in time until about 4.15pm to catch it.

The upcoming shows are as follows (Follow the link and click on 'listen again', scroll through to the correct time and hope it works!):

Hi Merys

Not up to me I'm afraid. The promo stuff is dealt with by the publisher but I'm sure if I behave myself on air I will get around the UK eventually! :-)

Hi xf I listened to the interview, you came over very well, and maybe give people food for thought! very professional, I have read your book very addictive, once you start reading it, hard to put it down,
Best wishes

I took the book with me to Italy over half term. Read it on the flights there and back. It was really good, although I do remember already reading bits, which felt a bit bit odd!

Completely enjoyed it. Great book.
