Question: How many independent bookshops have their own radio show?
Answer: One, Crockatt & Powell, on air from October 5th.
Yes that's right we are going to have a radio show on Thursday afternoons on Resonance 104.4FM. Details are slightly sketchy at the moment but it will be in the afternoon, either 3pm or 3:30pm.
We hope to have a varied and interesting schedule comprising author interviews, author readings, recordings of poetry events in the shop and perhaps a kind of "books of the moment" slot with Marie and I arguing about our favourite books.
So far we have an interview with Louise Welsh and Zadie Smith reading in the shop. Ben Markovits will be recorded on 28th September when he reads from Either Side of Winter at the shop.
We also hope to record a poetry event we have on Monday 18th September. This is a turtle event, part of an anarchic series of "happenings" dreamed up by Michael Shamberg.
So even if you can't make it down the Loo you will still be able to enjoy our events...After all Resonance is an internet radio station as well as broadcasting on FM across London.
