Pictures of Home
I knew I would deviate from my routine this weekend but I never thought that things would be inflected by a technical issue on the MMON server system. As planned, there's no new/regular Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast this week or next week. Instead this week I'm releasing the first part of a two-part interview with me, which was originally broadcast on Campus FM a few weeks ago.
During my recent visit to Malta, I was interviewed by Charles Xuereb for his Salon Crit. As you'll hear in the interview, Charles and I go back to the very beginning of my professional career in the early 1980s, when he oversaw some of my very first experiences in radio and television production. Being with him in the studios at Tal-Qroqq made me feel not too unlike how I feel when I visit my parents' home in Sliema. I hadn't had a conversation like this with Charles (neither on nor off-air) since the late 1990s.
To me, the sound of Charles Xuereb's broadcasts is like pictures of home. So, although the original programme is edited from the Campus FM broadcast you'll still hear some of his introductory remarks. Just click here for the MP3 or you can get the recording as the latest podcast from this RSS feed...once the MMON server is back to normal.
Part two will appear on this blog (and as a MMON podcast) no later than next weekend.
