A River in Egypt

The magic thing about being in the bfm orbit is that it can provide you with the opportunity to talk with some very interesting characters.

Not many would enjoy the prospect of, for example, getting up at 6am to interview Michael Cullen about Foreshore and Seabed legal intricacies but, for me, I'm ecstatic that there is such access. These people are in no way obliged to give up their time and I feel very lucky that listeners are good enough to, well, bother. We never pay the subjects, nor, for that matter, do bfm pay me - probably for very good reasons.
