In the presence of illustrious guests~my Midweek Drive debut on Siren FM

Co-hosting a radio show for a couple of hours?

Talking about Sophie’s Turn live on air to all manner of interesting and awe-inspiring people?

Offering short readings of Sophie’s Turn live on air, right there and then?

Sure, bring it on, I’m game!

In fact, it already happened. On October 24, 2012, I had the tremendous pleasure of hosting the Siren FM midweek drive show from 5pm to 7pm, alongisde chief presenter Alex Lewczuk and co-hosts Katie Grimason and Ed Wellman (and Tom, for a short spell).

Here’s me with Ed (back left), Tom (back right) and Katie (front right) in the Siren FM studio. Dream team!

And it was the most awesome experience. Take a look at the roll call of people who phoned in and chatted about their own projects… and listened to or talked about Sophie’s Turn:

Cameron Tilbury
CEO of Maple Star Music & Media

Sam Owen
MBPsS BSc- Relationships coach, Psychologist

 Arthur Weingarten
Writer/Producer ( Murder She Wrote, Ironside, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Addams Family)

Michele Monro
with another top selection from her Father Matt Monro‘s back catalogue

 Sarah Pinborough
Award winning author whose credits include The Dog-Faced Gods trilogy and Torchwood.

Phil Leirness
with more reflections from LA

I know. Incredible! Here’s your chance to listen. I won’t upload the files as a two-hour programme makes too huge a file, but here are the links to the podcast, in two parts.

Part 1

Lincolnshire writer Nicky Wells makes her Midweek Drive debut and shares rock stories with Cameron Tilbury from Nashville, discusses relationship strategies with ace coach Sam Owen  before heading to new York and premier writer/producer Arthur Weingarten accompanied by Alex Lewczuk, Katie Grimason & Ed Wellman ( original TX for The Midweek Drive on www.sirenonline.co.uk Wed Oct 24th 2012 )

~Also featuring: a reading of Sophie’s Turn by Alex Lewzcuk (at o4.00 approximately)

Part 2

The penultimate Midweek Drive of October 2012 connects Michele Monro with Ed Wellman & Katie Grimason & continues with the welcome return of award-winning writer Sarah Pinborough sharing her thoughts with Nicky Wells about the modern writing process and setting another sight-reading challenge for Alex Lewczuk ( original TX for The Midweek Drive on www.sirenonline.co.uk Wed Oct 24th 2012)

~Also featuring: brief on-air intro to Sophie’s Turn (at 01:10 approximately) another short reading of Sophie’s Turn by me (at 13:10 approximately)

🙂

And the best thing?

I’ve been invited back! I’ll have another chance to do it all again in early December ~ how excited am I?

Thanks for having me on the show, Alex!

So. My strategy for blundering through unexpectedly meeting outstandingly talented, interesting and successful people? Well… I laugh a lot. And I talk a lot.

What’s yours?

  1. Love seeing you out and about (well you know what I mean Nicky!). Congratulations on your fab PR x

  2. Wow! You’re becoming an expert on the radio Nicky – well done. 🙂

  3. That is sooooo cool! Well done, Nicky! Wish I could listen to it, but it’s always a challenge to listen to radio when your laptop is perceived to be outside the UK. I’ll have to be creative…

    • *waves* Thanks for visiting, and I didn’t know that ~ I assumed the whole point of podcasts was that they should be available to anyone, anywhere! 🙂 XX Take care and see you soon, sweetie.
