Radio: Oliver Sacks, Ronan O’Gara and the perfect cuppa


Yesterday I was a guest on WLR FM with radio veteran Billy McCarthy. Here’s the audio.

We discussed Oliver Sacks’ wonderful New York Times article on his diagnosis with terminal cancer, Irish rugby star Ronan O’Gara’s recent Late Late Show gaffe, and how to make the perfect cup of tea (according to the British Standards Institute, and they should know, right?).

A young Frank Sinatra (left) does an interview for one of the many programs produced by the Armed Forces Radio Service for broadcast to the troops overseas during World War II with Alida Valli, an Italian actress. Unidentified date, presumably 1941 - 1945. Unidentified place.

Live radio has a magic you don’t get in other media. I had a great time chatting with Billy and my co-panellist Esther Doyle.

  1. Live radio is indeed special – so intimate. You came across very well and the discussion was enjoyable and varied – and a nice gong for this blog too.
