I've been a journalist all my adult life. I've been in love with radio since I can remember. For some reason I was usually the one in the radio station nominated to 'look after' the work experience kid, and that role has evolved over the years until I find myself as the world's least likely academic, required to give my charges the best possible start to their radio careers. And this is my first-ever blog.
- I'll aim to follow Valerie Geller's advice to 'tell the truth, and never be boring'.
- I will seek to be a critical friend to those I comment on in radio and in journalism, never forgetting it's a much tougher world in the industry than out of it.
- I will be fearless in promoting the practical and the vocational over the theoretical and the abstract.
I hope that'll do for a start.
