Radio still beats the net…

It was a bit of a struggle out bed this morning after the night before. First stop, Good Morning Ulster. Seamus McKee picked up many of the threads from last night’s debate so deftly thrown on to Slugger by Richard. It’s strange. Most of the time I post stuff on Slugger, people around me rarely ask about what’s up there, or why I said this or that. This morning within twenty minutes I met two senior politicians, who quizzed me (gently) about the interview. However powerful the net may become, it still doesn’t have the reach the power or the immediacy of radio.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
