Making The News


No Comments

I am so focused on helping my clients make the news, it is often a surprise when I do it myself! And, last month was one such time when I was absolutely amazed to learn that my music show, CATtales podcast, had been featured in the international music press recently.

The one with Motörhead’s Phil Campbell got the scoop on Lemmy’s latest days and, unbeknown to me, was shared to Motörhead’s fans worldwide by Blabbermouth, Loudwire, Metal Addicts, Metalhead Zone and Tone Deaf, amongst other titles.

But, of course, listeners to the show heard it there first!

Listeners of my CATtales podcast series will be familiar with the interviews I have done in the world of music and entertainment but, before technology advanced to a stage of broadcast, these conversations were published in printed magazines and online media. (more…)

Chatting About The Media


No Comments

Occasionally I am asked to talk in the broadcast media about the communications industry and developments in the media so was really pleased to guest on  award-winning radio station Siren 107.3 FM on earlier this month.

I chatted on Alex Lewczuk’s Midweek Drive with award-winning author Abigail Tarttelin about some dark themes in her 3rd novel Dead Girls and how the media has responsibility around mental health.

It was a bit of a radio week last week, not least because I was invited onto Midweek Drive morning edition last Thursday as the mystery voice and, thank goodness, I was recognised!

Alone On Christmas


No Comments

Working in PR I am often involved in some fabulous projects and I’m even becoming a bit of a regular at Pinewood Studios working on the music videos for singer Gary Curtis.

I have to admit that I’m enjoying the experience and Gary’s latest video for his single, Alone On Christmas, was a particularly exciting project as it was a short film around a zombie breakout featuring a number of familiar faces including; Sally Geeson (Bless This House/Carry On films), Gary Ashburn, and Jerome Blake (Star Wars).

What was even more exciting for me, though, was that I was invited to be one of the scientists brought in to help contain the attack but I don’t avoid being infected myself! (more…)
