Oooh! I'm a radio star!
Well, in truth I was allowed to babble on well beyond my due 15 minutes of fame on Wine Biz Radio - a great radio show emanating from California
For anyone involved in the wine blogging community, Wine Biz Radio, and its hosts Randy & Kaz, will already be well known.
This is Randy in the photo - a perfect face for radio, wouldn't you say? :)
For everyone else, this is a two-guy radio show that airs every week on live radio around California where Kaz (winemaker, sound effects maestro and all-round entertainer) and Randy (resident geek [sorry Randy!], lion tamer [sorry Kaz!] and winemaking student) look at stories of interest to wine folk.
Mostly this is US & California specific, but as Randy in particular is linked in to all the online communities on twitter, Open Wine Consortium, Wine Blogging Wednesday, and more, then it touches on wider issues as well (Kaz gets dragged kicking and screaming into these too from time to time).
This week, in an (unusually) pre-recorded show, I called in and got a chance to share my thoughts on UK wine drinking, Dinastia Vivanco, Garnacha, the European Wine Bloggers' Conference and even babies and growing up in Italy. Yes, pretty random!
If you get a chance (and have a little time spare - you can always forward to my eventual arrival at around 25 minutes in), check it out!

Thanks Randy & Kaz
