EDIT: here's my bit in full.

Just got a call to go on a live phone chat following... wait for it... a new version of Monopoly being published. I should be on air around 12.40pm, that 20 minutes before 1pm GMT.

Cheers,
Jon.

Nice one!

The programme is now available on iPlayer -

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0066f7d/Jonathan_Cowap...

Not sure about outside the UK, but worth a try - Build up starts at 34 minutes into the cast onwards to about 41 minutes.

Disclaimer - Other games are available [cough] Talisman [/cough]

I'd like to "Listen again" -- what segment/show should I look for?

And, I just noticed their volume control goes to 11 -- awesome!

EDIT: I see I missed the above post while posting. Thanks!

just listened to it on BBC iPlayer. Excellent interview Jon... also credit to the interviewer for how he treated the subject and his enthusiasm for your club.

And happy 5th birthday to you!! I have fond memories of when I was able to just pop across from Manchester to join you for a game.

Thank you, all. Yes, Jonathan Cowap was very sympathetic. I did a studio interview with him a couple of years ago, took a bunch of stuff in, and he was really enthusiastic. He loved Funkenschlag. It ended up as 12 minutes on air, when they're not supposed to have that much chat!

I was surprised it was over so fast. I was primed before about it being triggered by another new M-word, so I had some things noted down to say. I haven't heard it back myself yet, I hope I don't sound too pissy.

No, your tone/attitude were just right, I thought. Well done.
