A brilliant new concept.
I was lucky enough this morning to have been interviewed by Pete Wilson for BBC Radio Gloucestershire about my forthcoming exhibition at the Garden’s Gallery here in Cheltenham. It was great fun and very flattering to have someone interested in what I do and how I got there. He saw the odd side of talking about cartoons on the radio but it soon became clear that this was not a problem. I was lucky too to have the chance to talk about my new little book, which will be on sale at the exhibition too.
This is a project I took to give my own interpretation of various Gloucestershire place names. Lots of fun to do and printed by my old chums at Severnprint

For those of you thinking that cartoons on the radio might not be a good idea, then think again. After all, there was a time when the BBC had a radio programme with a ventriloquist on the radio: Archie Andrews and Brough! You could never see his lips moving.
My interview with Pete Wilson will be broadcast on BBC Radio Gloucestershire on Sunday 6th August at 12 midday and will be repeated at 5am on 13th August. After the first broadcast it will also be available on the BBC iPlayer for 30 days. ( |Will anyone be listening at 5-00 on a Sunday morning? )

Congratulations! Will there by any way to tune in in America? Though I fear I will likely be asleep here at that time.
They are going to let me have a cd of it so with a bit of luck I’ll be able to put it on my website! I might edit it a bit.
I am very happy for you! I would be most interested to hear it. I’ll make every effort to catch it! I hope to visit Dorset next year, your drawings make me yearn to return (my fifth time).
How kind of you. The programme will be on Radio Gloucestershire, so good luck with finding that! You might be able to find it on the internet somehow. Otherwise I’m going to attempt to put it on here, perhaps! You can buy the prints of some of the drawings off my http://www.pauldaviescartoons.gallery site, alternatively if that’s a problem I’d be happy to mail one to you! I’ll give you a hefty discount for kindness!
Cartoons on the radio? The highly esteemed , . . Goon Show!
We are on the same page!
You can do a “listen again” on http://www.bbc.co.uk/radiogloucestershire
Brilliant, now everyone knows and will be able to see my cartoons on the radio.
