Truly annoying 2dayFM DJ Dan (he of the Weed Whacker-styled hair), cute little Hobbit-sized DJ Maz, and the handsome hottie I was up at an ungodly hour to hear between them. Hear the interview below courtesy of link by RANet:
The best thing about this radio interview was listening to Richard laugh. My gosh, that does my soul good. And learning during the IKEA/LOTR character names quiz how knowledgeable RA is about IKEA furniture. Which leads to happy little DIY fantasies . . . otherwise, had to endure way too much inane happy talk and way too many commercials on the way there and in-between the (all-too-brief) interview’s two parts.
Found myself wishing the DJ would talk less and allow RA to talk MORE. That is why we were tuning in, right? An interview. You ask questions and then you let the other person talk and actually give them the opportunity to complete a sentence or express a thought before jumping back in.
Not meaning to just pick on Aussies here, either. We’ve seen American media types do the same thing all too often, and those from other countries. Richard, you continue to impress me with your good humor, patience, gentlemanly nature and aplomb in handling these situations on an international scale. Bless you!
