Attention fellow radio geeks...

So I don't know how many of you are listening to the radio at midnight on a Thursday morning, but last night I was as I was listening to the (quite brilliant) #HuwandGreg'sPizzaParty - the annual merger of daytime and specialist, where Huw Stephens welcomes Greg James and they just mess around for a show. 

At about quarter past 11 Huw suggested they pick 3 people's requests, they'd get them on the show and they'd be the last three songs before midnight. I was about to go to bed so almost didn't bother texting in - but then decided what the heck and requested Mr Brightside by the Killers. 

10 minutes later, just as I was getting into bed 'Radio 1' flashes up on my phone as an incoming call (yes I'm sad enough to have saved 03700 100 100 as a contact). Huw's producer, who's name avails me, had a million and one questions to help Greg and Huw interview me later - incidently none of which they ended up asking, because almost as soon as I'm put through to them we get onto radio geek talk. 

Sorry for being so excitable about this but I wanted to shout about it somewhere, and here's as good a place as any. If you fancy listening to our geeky convo, the audio is here:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2YLN93Cg4B9RzBZd0ctZ2thOVE

I heard that and almost instantly knew they were bound to be on Unofficial Mills - I was right! I also recollected that there was a user on here called Matthew, which is you.

That was five minutes of pure unadulterated geekery and I loved it. Bravo to you.

Impressive work with the Newsbeat jingles!

I can do better than that - the ever so slight delay let me down so I was too close to crashing the vocal for my perfectionist liking!
