This week's OUT OF THE BAG is yet again a packed show!
I will be introducing Peter Emerson onto the show to discuss The de Borda Institute! Who and what they are, what they hope to achieve and Peter's involvement!
Peter himself has a very interesting life story to tell us and I feel we may be inviting him back soon for even MORE!
From his email to me:
Oh I think for many, one hour would be quite enough. If there's a lot of interest, OK, we can always come back for more. But let's stick to a modest introduction.
Do I assume you will want to chat about my background as well? After all, politics by itself can be pretty boring, and many just go numb when the topic is voting systems.
So a little, perhaps, on my four years in Africa, '70-'74, a visit which culminated in an 8-month and 10,000 km bicycle ride across Central Africa, with arrests by Idi Amin's troops for decadence (I had a beard) and later by the Portugese (as a suspected PLO terrorist).
Then, in '75, I came here to Belfast.
Later, I learnt Russian and in '88 got a job in Moscow; in my summer holidays, I cycled to the Urals, and in '90, my contract now done, I travelled on the bike again from Moscow to Tirana. Two years on, with Bosnia now at war, I returned to Yugoslavia as a free-lance war correspondent, again by pedal power.
The rest, as you know, is on my web-site.
Really looking forward to speaking with Peter and learning about The de Borda Institute!
My second guest is a LIVING LEGEND in the punk rock scene!
Joe Moody (AKA Joe Zero) will be joining me. Originally from the 1977 Belfast punk band The Androids he soon moved on to form the EXCELLENT band VICTIM! I have been playing some of the Victim tracks on recent shows as they are on the Belfast label PUNKERAMA!
I am looking forward to hearing some of Joe's stories about his times in BOTH bands and what he is doing now and planning for the future!
An hour of great music and chat promised!
Tune in at 9pm Irish Time, this WEDNESDAY 14th of October to OUT OF THE BAG!
