Did a piece – well, was interviewed – for BBC’s Feedback program, which I’ve usually just enjoyed as a listener, about digital radios. Basically, we met up at John Lewis’s store and I and one of their staff talked about the huge variety of digital radios on offer, and especially stuff like the Pure Digital Bug which lets you pause or record radio. (I’m going to record the repeat of Feedback on Sunday.)
Much kudos to Polly Bradshaw of John Lewis’s PR who basically gave us a venue and managed to get it fairly quiet – no trivial task. Yet when it came to the program, although my affiliation was given, John Lewis wasn’t (it was just called “a large retail chain or something) – and that, even though one of their team was also providing verbal input.
I’m not bitter or angry or Melanie Phillips-style ranty about this; just puzzled and intrigued. Can anyone explain?
Interesting detail about Feedback: huge amount of the feedback is now as emails. Letters? Few dozen a week. A lot of phone calls. But the Net has really changed life on those programs.
