http://abc.net.au/melbourne/listenlive.htm is the link to listen (live) online.

Local time (Melbourne) is 2.25pm Tuesday - timeanddate.com tells me that that's around 11.25pm Monday night in Dallas time (CDT).

This is the Richard Stubbs afternoon program on ABC radio - highly credible talkback. It's great exposure for gaming - brought about by the publicity team for the Australian Games Expo http://www.austgamesexpo.com - which will of course be the focus of the interview.

I've set something up to record it but if anyone else wants to as well, that would be great.


Edited to change subject after MP3 uploaded - see page 2 of thread

Good stuff - Stubbsie's a wargamer. I used to see him in Napoleons quite a bit.

That's interesting Melissa, I'll tune in for a listen.
I happen to now Stubbsy is a gamer himself; I've seen him at a few conventions playing DBM (ancients miniatures)!

That's why I suggested the PR people target his show.

That's great, Melissa! I wish you the best of luck. I'm sure you'll make an excellent board game emissary... And I look forward to hearing you speak on the radio (instead of the reverse).

BTW, are y'all really gonna be at Essen in '08? If so, I might have to reconsider my plan to skip the next one...

As Melissa's badge implies we want to be, although the finances have yet to come to the party...

First interview done, a 2 minute pre-recorded slot for regional breakfast radio. Not sure if this will ever be available online, as they don't stream over the internet.

They asked if I was excited about the release of Australian Monopoly this week.

I said not really blush

oh hey, why don't you inform them that "yours truly" here certainly is! That way I can obtain a "shout out" in this manner for ALL of my 'fans' there "below around" eh? FINE! then for my LONE 'fan' and I KNOW there's got to be ONE at least. I'm hoping?

And done - excellent, if way too short, interview!

Shame Melissa couldn't keep Richard chatting longer, there were obviously a lot of good stories that could have been extracted regarding his gaming experiences
