Video killed the Radio Star

After only a few weeks in Dubai the last 24 hours has seen me do more press interviews than the last two years in the UK. After a press launch yesterday at Ski Dubai I found myself at the recording studio of "Eye on Dubai" who broadcast on 103.8FM. This was my first ever live radio interview and the 30 minutes I spent at the station were both the most nerve wracking and exciting minutes I have had in some time.

The two radio DJs were extremely well prepared and professional. I was impressed by the energy that they put into presenting when live on air. When the interview actually started I felt a little like I was having a viva exam. Soon enough it was over and I could breathe a huge sigh of relief. I think it was kind of like giving a best man's speech - big nerves before hand but once I was done I wanted to do it again.

If you are interested you can find the stream of the interview here:
