Kate Clanchy and I were on BBC Radio (Oxford) today for about 30 minutes, with host Jo Thoenes, discussing poetry, and the new Oxfam CD, Life Lines 2. The show should be available for replay online at some point. She asked me for a limerick, while on air, on her name. Here is my hastily composed effort...
There once was a girl name of Jo
Whose speed was fast, not slow
She interviewed Todd Swift
On her show for a lift
And now Jo is raring to go.
I should have worked radio and head into this one, as Radiohead - digital pioneers that they are - hail from Oxford. Oh well.
