Hello again…

sounds like the title for a Pete & Dud TV special…Noel James here, Britain’s last illegible bachelor, and if you don’t believe me look at my catchphrase: Duuuw o’n i’n dod lawr man’na myn uffarn i.

Last time i said i would write something about Radio Wales. as usual with me it is all driven by bitterness. well not so much bitterness as butterness, i’ve been margarinlised. I sent my ideas in, as i did last year, for the important commisioning editors of our national radio station to peruse, and like last year….nothing ! I get given nothing. Of course this happens to loads of people (i’m guessing hundreds), rejection goes with the territory. But i was annoyed, my ideas this year were i thought just up their cul de sac; varied ideas, five in total, covering a lot of their required bases: anniversaries/birthdays; comedy; voices we don’t hear very often on the radio, diversity…
