Miranda Sawyer: Cheshire, Smash Hits and books

A few weeks ago, I ventured out of The North and went to London to meet Miranda Sawyer. She's a patron of Manchester Literature Festival and a very nice one at that. We met up on Oxford Street and then made our way to the BBC's HQ where she was doing a voice-over for The Culture Show. It was a strange and exciting experience walking through the barriers with my visitor's pass next to someone so well-known and respected in popular culture.

In a little studio with mics and sound desks and padded walls, I set up my recording device and asked her about life in Cheshire, judging the Orange Prize for Fiction, e-books and best of all, what it was like working at Smash Hits in the early '90s.

So as a parting gift, at the end of a fabulous festival, I'm sharing the interview with you all. It's in two parts because the phone started ringing half way through, and I'm no expert when it comes to editing! Enjoy!
