Live on Drive-Time
Five minutes of fame for my book The Joy of Essex on Radio 5 Drive-Time on Monday live from the cafe at the Basildon Sporting Village. Peter Moore, who started out working on the Basildon Echo was amused by my billing as an Essexologist and managed to cover Bas Vegas, the Basilwood sign, Tiptree jam, West Ham and moire in my slot. Click on the link to listen, it's 2 hours 20 minutes in. Sporting Village looked well-used to judge by the packed car park and the rock-climbers in reception and Five Live also interviewed Olympian gymnast Max Whitlock on the show.
