Radio Gaga


I happened to catch a couple of very interesting and Northern Irish crime fiction-related interviews on Radio Ulster over the last couple of days.

First up, Stuart Nevellie chats to William Crawley about winning the LA Times Book Prize here.

And Colin Batemen chats to Marie Louise Muir about The Day of the Jack Russell and The Sunday Times right here.

Listen to them as quickly as you can, folks. These Listen Again links have a very short life span.

Thanks for the heads up Gerard. Took your advice and listened to both immediately.

Gerard Brennan said...

Hope you enjoyed them, Seana.

I did indeed. Although in Bateman's case, it's a sad reminder that there are still a lot of books he wrote when he was still Colin that I haven't gotten to yet.

Gerard Brennan said...

Aye, we're quite lucky here. There are a couple of second hand boiokshops in Belfast where you can find pretty much the complete works of Colin Bateman for just a couple of quid a pop.

Some enterprising individual should buy them all and set up a website...

Hmmmmm.

Hmmmm is right. Actually,though I have one on my shelf that I haven't gotten to yet, so accessibility is not the only issue.

Yeah about that, do you know why the BBC take them off after a week?

I dont understand the logic behind it at all.

You're in with them on a semi regular can you ask the reason behind it next time?

Its VERY irritating.

Bateman gave you a nice mention, Adrian, despite his being from Larne and you being from Carrickfergus and all.

Bangor.

Nobody is from Larne. Except for really scary guys with tractors and skull tattoos.

Oh. I thought you were slinging back Larne at him, when you were doing the Irish version of the dozens with him, I believe on this very blog.
