Top Radio 4 Action.


Each evening this week just after putting out the light, I have been listening to Book at Bedtime on Radio 4. Quite often the subject is a bit right on and veers into the ever strident Woman's Hour territory (in my opinion) but this week has been a cracker. Just 15 minutes each weeknight and this week a story about a confident, chirpy Australian woman with OCD. This stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and the woman in the story counts everything she encounters, 'the scaffolding of my life' as she calls it. The book is called Addition by Toni Jordan. Anyhow, it's a really top story and I am enjoying how it is unfolding. The piece starts and ends with Kylie and Love at First Sight (which is shamelessly catchy and dead good!)

If you want to, you can listen to Ep 1 of Book at Bedtime here

It's good.

OCD... hmmm... how can she be chirpy?

Hello Dandelion!

Well, she seems to manage.

How are you?

That is cool! I wonder if I can get it on Podcast. I listened to John Lithgow do poetry one night on NPR here. It was lovely.

Hmm, I don't know if Podcasts from the UK BBC are available overseas. It's a great tale so far and I am looking forward to tonight's episode.

So how was your day? I guess you are 'tucked up' with kylie now!

Kylie and I just finished up, thanks! Had a great day and a very enjoyable, thoughtful, ranging chat with my Vicar over a nice coffee and an idle hour.

And you?

Spent the day in Cheltenham today. It still feels like home, I sort of miss living there. But TG, SS and me had a good day thanks:)

Nice part of the world. My favourite bit of pavement is in Chelts; unwisely told my brother about that one day ten years ago - massive piss taking since. Just near the front of Cav' House, by the way.

Suburbia said...

What makes it your favourite bit?

It just descends so finely from a high pavement to the road. Delightful on the feet and placed with real care!

Suburbia said...

It's probably the bit I was walking on once when my skirt fell down around my ankles!! (It was a long time ago)

Cool story, Sub!
