If you've been listening to The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X (formerly XFM) last week you would've heard that they had a competition on there where you could go and see Stereophonics play live. To win this competition all you had to do is be the lucky caller that they selected and also guess what Stereophonics song Welsh singer Aled Jones was covering of theirs - but in Welsh. They chose to use Aled Jones as the group themselves are Welsh... so it fits, obviously.

Well what an interesting day!
Firstly, I received a call this afternoon from the producer on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire after she had emailed me through my blog (*yay*) asking if I was happy for an interview about my current ordeal with my operation. Obviously at first glance of the email I was fairly nervous (and shocked), but I replied with my contact details and she called me to confirm a few details and originally wished for me to come in on Monday 4th March for the 11am slot. I agreed to it.
Then about 20-odd minutes later the producer (may I... [read more]
