When I was in England in November, I had the opportunity to record a podcast for the BBC Radio 4 show Soul Music. It’s was an unexpected invitation that came up about two weeks before my trip. My friend Ian Mcglynn (who released a version of Waterloo Sunset to help support our family after Vernon’s accident) had been contacted by a radio producer who had discovered his song online, and so he shared the story with her. Anyway, it was several months ago now that we recorded in London (yes, at the official BBC studios!) but I just received an email today from the producer, Karen:

“With apologies for the delay, I’ve finally had it confirmed that the Waterloo Sunset edition of Soul Music will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in the UK on Wednesday 17th May at 0902. It’s a new slot and a high profile one. It’s the first programme in the new series so will get lots of publicity and on-air trails.”

EEK! Now I’m nervous. What did I even SAY? That’s the problem when you generally have a lot to say: you aren’t sure what is going to actually come out of your mouth…and you don’t remember what you said very well either.  Which is fine with friends and family because you know they love you anyway. Big sigh. Well, its going to be out there soon and I’ll find out (along with a lot of people in the UK) what I said. It was a lovely experience though…really special to return to London to talk about Vernon and his favorite song.  It felt like a way to share him one last time with his fellow citizens, a way to bring him back to the land. We’ll see how it goes! Maybe even Ray Davies of the Kinks will hear it. What a thought! 🙂
