UAE Bloggers to become radio stars?

Just a heads up to the community that myself (An Englishman in Dubai) and Chris Saul (Christopher Saul's Weblog) have been invited as guests to the lunchtime show on Eye on Dubai 103.8. The topic will about the blogging phenomenon with particularly reference to the UAE.

The show will be for an hour sometime between 12-2pm, Tuesday May 8th. It will be co-hosted by Paddy Smith (Editor of Stuff Middle East) and Siobhan Leyden (Eye on Dubai presenter) alongside Sim Whatley and JC Butler of Dubizzle and Gail Potter previously from the Bridgit Jones club.

I hope to provide some entertaining input into this show and I hope some of the community can tune in and provide input too via SMS and email during the show.

That's pretty cool. Will tune into the show for an exchange of a mention of our blog on the radio ;)

@ Aaron: We tuned it, but you disappointed. Tsk tsk. Baaaaad boy.

Aaron said...

Sorry sex and Dubai - with seven people in the studio it was a little bit chaotic - would love to have given you a mention but had little opportunity.

Was kind of an unfocused programme - and it seems with Dubizzle and Gail Porter being on the panel they didn't quite know what they wanted to do, but still nice to see blogging being given airtime.

@ Aaron: No worries - wonder if Siobhan would even allow the word "sex" mentioned on her sanitary talk show.

@ Anonmyous: Yeah we agree - the show was a bit chaotic and Dubizzle and Bridget Jones weren't really bloggers but there to push their own agendas. The interview from Gaza was pretty good.

Sex and Dubai - agreed. The Gaza blogger was excellent. Made me wonder if I shouldn't blog about more serious things!
