Never Heard of Him

9,February, 2008

While I’m on the subject of my radio appearance… As I left the Midweek show, the host Libby Pervis told me that one of her guests next week is Michael Smiley. I told her that he is a great comedian, an old friend, and to make sure she gives him my love.

I just listened to the program and Michael Smiley isn’t on – Dave Spikey is. I must have gotten confused when she told me. I’ve never met Dave Spikey. I can just imagine the conversation when Libby tells Dave that his old friend John Lenahan says hello and Mr Spikey replies, “Never heard of him.”

I suppose Libby will never book me again. Oh well, I’m too handsome for radio.

I was on Midweek with the wonderful Libby Purves’ today on BBC Radio 4. The BBC has a “Listen Again” link that only works for a week. So if you want to have a listen, click the link below before next Wednesday.
