Radio interview

Did a second radio interview this week to promote the book, this time on Spectrum FM in Mojacar, in the south-east of Spain. I felt it went considerably better than the last one on Talk Radio Europe, not least because Eddie was also interviewed - albeit briefly and only over the phone. The host, Richard Shanley, also played his part as he was clued up about Eddie's background and asked relevant questions.
Eddie, despite his frail health, can be trusted as always to provide the knock-out quote. On this occasion, on being asked about a particular contribution to a Lean film, he mused "What was the name of that bloody film?" on air. It's a shame Eddie's not strong enough to appear on more shows - be it radio or TV - the public is missing a golden opportunity to see and hear this candid man in action.
