(for Radio 3's White Rabbits in Sussex)


In 2011 I won a prestigious Sony Award for my very first radio program on BBC Radio 3. It would have gone to my head had I not failed to get another commission for two years.  Since then the gods have been kind or, to be specific, producer Sara Jane Hall has been kind, offering me the opportunity to present programs on a diverse array of subjects, including Ivor Cutler, time travel, murmurations and clapping.

In June 2015 I was guest on Radio 4's Museum of Curiosities with Sarah Millican and John Lloyd. I had to take in an object to donate to the museum. Obviously I chose a component from a time machine. In 2016 I was twice guest on Radio 3's The Verb (Ian Macmillan is ace), Radio 4's Saturday Live (I took some false teeth on the show that had been posted to me) and Chris Evans Radio show. I was in Berlin at the time and did the interview in a friend's kitchen. Very surreal.
