The audio interviews I did at the Manchester Blog Awards last week are going to be broadcast on BBC 5 Live’s Pods and Blogs tonight between 2-3am British Summer Time. Technically speaking, that’s really really early Tuesday morning.

[Update: the audio is here, between 12.19 - 22.00 in the program]

Although I haven’t heard the final edit, I did manage to record the entire awards ceremony, including several excellent readings, and got some good interviews afterwards. More details about all that over on the BBC Manchester blog.

Unless you happen to live in a time zone that makes it more advantageous to listen to it live (Monday @ 9pm EST/6pm PST) you’ll probably want to use the listen again feature of the BBC Radio Player (you’ll find a link on the top right side of the Pods and Blogs blog.

There have also been quite a few posts about the event from the bloggers themselves if you’d like to read more.
