Thanks for the word on Triple J, will check it out. Having appeared on 'You and Yours' once, I'm sorry to see you slag it off. It's the only BBC show that's ever paid me for an interview! Apart from Radio Two's Sounds Of The Sixties on Saturday mornings, I restrict myself to 4 and 6music too, but the 6 DJs usually drive me away within half an hour.

It's strange to see this post because Chris and I were talking about this subject a few days ago. One of my earliest memories is of my dad getting up at 4am (in Canada)so he could listen to a BBC radio show every day.

Just discovered your blog this evening Scott and will be reading it regularly. By strange coincidence I have also just recently discovered TuneIn although I find that being in New Zealand I tend to listen to Northern hemisphere stations!

Thanks Michael, I look forward to you returning many times!

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

    Dallas Buyers Club
    Great performances and I appreciated the fact that it never took the sentimental route. (****)

    Great performances all round. (****)

  • : Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road
    Confused. Terrible dialogue. And what little CGI they did use looked rubbish. A huge disappointment. (**)

  • : Jiro Dreams Of Sushi

    Jiro Dreams Of Sushi
    Documentary about the best sushi chef in the world. Made me really want some eel nigiri. (****)

  • : Me Without You

    Me Without You
    Second time I've seen this. It was the film that made me realise Michelle Williams was amazing. (****)

  • : Meteora

    Meteora
    Beautifully shot. Not enough plot. (***)

  • : Untouchable

    Untouchable
    One of the most successful French movies of all time. I can see why. (****)

  • : Involuntary

    Involuntary
    Swedish film that cleverly looks at group dynamics and how they influence the actions of the individual. Sort of cinema verite in style, the shots of often framed as if you are a voyeur looking on. (****)

  • : The Fall

    The Fall
    What a great movie. Amazed I had never heard of it before. Stunning cinematography. Loved it. (*****)

  • : Where the Truth Lies

    Where the Truth Lies
    Interesting thriller. Not a classic, by any means, but worth a look if it's on the telly. (***)

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)
