Roving Romaniac – Lucie visits BBC Cambridgeshire


Good morning!

And what a beautiful morning it is, too. The sun is shining, birds are singing, and I am still trying to get over the fact that I was on the radio last night. What a surreal experience that was. I never imagined, when I was growing up, that I would have the opportunity to be interviewed on the radio. But last night, I was given that opportunity and I must say, I had so much fun.

Sue Marchant and me after the show

I was interviewed by the very lovely, Sue Marchant, at BBC Cambridgeshire on her Big Night In slot. She was fantastic and put me at ease straight away – and she asked some fabulous questions, too. I spoke about The Romaniacs and our anthology, Romaniac Shorts, and also a little about myself and my own writing.

Walking into the studio, my nerves hit an all time high. The first thing that set me off were the big BBC letter at reception. I was overcome with a mix of nerves and sheer excitement – I was here!

Then I made my way into the studio where I met alternative folk quartet, Clutching at Straws, who were on the show after me. They were so lovely and chatting to them, and one of their girlfriends who was also there, really put me at ease before I went on. Everything just felt so relaxed – not at all how I had imagined it would be.

Then I was called in and the show began.

Afterwards, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. I had done it. The thing I had been worried about all week – I did it! And I think it went alright, too. Click here to listen. I am the first guest on so only about 5 minutes into the show.

So there you have it, one more thing to cross off my bucket list. I wonder what I will cross off next …

  2. I can just imagine the scene, especially with the great photos you posted. The wonderful Sue Marchant interviewed me about my book around 3 weeks ago, also for BBC Cambridgeshire, an experience to be savoured, but I sadly took no pictures. Keep up the good work. Radio rocks!

    • Hi Carol,
      Yes, I was very last minute with my photos – glad I did them now. It was such a fantastic experience, I am glad I have memories saved in the piccies.
      Sue is wonderful, isn’t she? So calming and chilled – very friendly too. I am glad you enjoyed your time there, too. 🙂

  3. Congratulations, Lucie! That was a fantastic interview, I never would’ve guessed you were nervous, you sound like a natural!

    • Thank you so much. I was so nervous, you wouldn’t believe! Chuffed to bits I managed to hide it so well 🙂
      Glad you enjoyed it.
