Crikey, how did that happen. I’m the presenter of a radio show!
It was strange not to be on the school run, picking up G from her Guarderia, so I hope she gets it when she hears my voice on the radio.
You can hear me every weekday from 16 to 18.00h on www.lunamallorca.com or if you’re in Mallorca you can listen on 100.3fm. Today I kicked off as I mean to go on, with a variety of subjects, from Lily Allen’s disasterous hairdo (she should go get it sorted out at one of the excellent hairdressers we have hear on the island) to how awful mosquitoes are and how to get rid of them (I spoke to Trudi who makes her own natural mosquito spray and sells it at her shop in Palma where you can also get handmade soaps and creams, made entirely on Mallorca and with local ingredients – visit Calle Corderia 29, in Palma de Mallorca. If you’re up on your Facebook thingimijig then you can join the Gaia Bathtime Group which is at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9416159855 .
Tomas, my cultural correspondent (actually he’s my mate and we’ve known each other for ages!), and I talked about the fiesta San Juan and the upcoming fiesta San Pedro which happens at the end of this week. Both of which involve running with fire – the Carre Foc – so have a good time at those, but remember to keep your hair and skin covered when you do it, unless you want to smell like burnt dog!
From 17 to 18.00h i played my first round of Hits and Headlines – well done to Geordie Graeme and Fifille who were the only people to get the year right – 1996! Tomorrow we’ll do it all again.
Tomorrow, or possibly Wednesday you’ll get the chance to hear an interview with the fabulous Michele McCain – you can check her out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVrsv9bo4W4 on You Tube and on her site http://www.michelemccain.com/ . She will be playing for free on Thursday night at 21.30h at an open air concert in the Plaça de l’Artesania (Passeig per l’Artesania) in Palma.
