Sometimes there's a story hidden beneath a story.
I was invited down to our provincial radio station LMFM today to be interviewed on their popular 'Late Lunch' show with broadcaster Gerry Kelly. This all came about from a message I received from a freelance journalist 'Louise Ferriter' last week. Louise had my contact details saved from 2 years previous when she wrote a newspaper article about my jeep been stolen and having it recovered that same night. Louise saw my new mission and asked if I would chat about it on radio.
My new word for today is 'synchronicity'. Although this interview was planned and set in stone last week, close friends of mine, Barry, Helen, Lea and Scott Colgan (unknown to this), wrote a letter into this radio show which they got this morning. What a lovely way to introduce the piece. All unplanned but perfect.
No questions were off limits (my choice) but it did have the affect on me of not knowing what's coming next.
I need not have worried. Gerry Kelly is one of those natural broadcasters. You are made feel relaxed immediately.
His calming nature is addictive, and I think was the recepient of this which was of course duly welcomed.
Thanks to all for the kind comments both before and after the interview. It means a lot.

Shuttle forward to 12min 07secs.
