Found it! (Sally interviews Katie Fforde)

Following a comment from Miss Lionheart, I remembered that a few months back I interviewed Katie Fforde on my radio show.

I promised that I would link try to find it and link to it.

Well......I found it. You can listen here.

And if anyone is interested, I have an interview with Neighbours actor Alan Fletcher (aka Karl Kennedy), which I know I can find, and one with Ron Moody of Fagin fame from the 1968 film of Oliver..but I'm not too sure where I've put that one......

Neighbours is moving to channel five which is about the channel we can't get!

Hi Sally. Thank you for finding this recording; it was great fun to listen to. There were some good thoughts in there to encourage you to advance your book. But oh dear, 5 children, a blog, does that leave time for a book? Let us hope so.
I would certainly be pleased to listen to any more such recordings you can find. Well done!

Neighbours on Channel 5, damn adverts!!

This is almost as good as 'listen again' on The Archers Sally :)

Sally Lomax said...

Beccy - Is it? Oh that's interseting. My kids had heard that it was finishing all together. Perhaps it's just finishing on the Beeb. You could probably get channel 5 if you got Sky/ Satellite?

Pierre - Well, not in the school holidays - like this week - but normally I do have the school days. My house is possibly not as clean as it should be most days. but I like writing!

John - Yes ads are a pain.

Meredic - What's with the almost?! :)

Sally Lomax said...

p.s. I've just remembered that it was Miss Lionheart who mentioned Katie Fforde!

I am sure that writing is a lot more fun than tidying, plus it produces something long lasting! I am looking forward to seeing the result sometime in the future.

Thankyou for the link-up Sally.

I've had to put the book down and move on to another. But, I *will* go back to it!

Best wishes.

Neighbours is a favourite of mine, and I like Karl Kennedy too, so I'd love to listen to the interview.

Sally Lomax said...

Pierre - Thank you. it's going well so far...

Ig - Us forty something women have to have something to make out lives exciting you know!

Ak - He was a good laugh too.... Will put it on soon!

You have a lovely voice, and a very professional technique.

I now know three famous people in the Blogosphere; PI-Pat, yourself and John G. Oh, and Boris Johnson!

Sally we have ntl digital and we can't get channel 5. I don't think my addicition to Neighbours can justify spending an extra €25 a month to switch to Sky. It is on an Irish channel but not a lunch time which is when I have time to watch it.

In respose to your comment on my blog. I am completely crap at languages (failed o'level french after studying it for 5 years). Irish is much harder and you are tested to a higher standard than school children. Bascically you have to be fluent.I've lived here nearly 13 years and the children still laugh at my pronouciation of some Irish words. I even struggle to get Ben's middle name correct (Oisin)!

Hi Sally
I've just listened to your interview with Katie Fforde. It was interesting and you were really good. She sounded very nice. I've never read any of her books but I will look out for them now!

Sally said...

Hi Sally, thanks for stopping by- good to meet you too!

Sally Lomax said...

Eliza - Will post it for you sap.
Keith - tahnk you!
Beccy - In Wales they have similar rules, but private schools aren't subject to them. it may possibly be against your principles I don't know - but it could be a means to an end...
HC - Thank you. I have one or two here if you would like one!
Sally - You too!

Hi, Sally!
How are you, my friend??
Sorry I have been a.w.o.l. but I am busy flitting here, there and everywhere at present!
Have you got any holiday plans this summer??
We are off to Rome and the Amalfi Coast in a weeks time and I will no doubt be blogging about it.
Take care and God bless you and all your family!
