THE BEDROOM BROADCAST



THIS IS THE VERY FIRST BEDROOM BROADCAST. It is an hour (intentionally. realistically it is one hour and nine minutes) long radio show, it was made at 0530 hrs on the 28th May 2009 by Jess Higgins (me) and Julia Scott (her). It is kind of like hanging out with your two best pals, listening to your favourite songs, buzzing  about good things, sharing the news, spreading a bit of word and shaking your limbs while nobody is there to see it. 
It's a fine slice of time, we had a good one, maybe you will too.

Due to the hour and the lack of radio experience (neither of us had done this before... ever) sometimes we talk too much over songs, wheel off in untangible conversational directions, say annoying and embarrassing things and make noise that shouldn't be heard on pro radio. But this is TRUTH. It is HONESTY. It is TRYING A NEW THING.
IT IS WHAT IT IS (.. that's a statement.)

There will be an accompanying booklet SOON, and you could probably buy it in print at some point or download it and print it off yourself, here is what is in store.
