Radio 1 on Sunday.
And here's the reason why.
Yesterday I was listening to "Your Call" with Scott Mills on radio 1. For those who dont know what your call is, basicly someone texts radio 1 for a tune they want to listen too. They call you back and you tell scott what tune you requested. Anyway, I thought why not. So I texted for "Elbow - Forget Myself", the message sent and I got a delivery report. 2 min later i got a number witheld call back, thinkin nothing of it I picked it up.
"Hello is that Alex"
"Hi my name is becky, im calling from Radio 1. We got your text for your call, Elbow - forget myself."
"Unforchanetly we cant put your song on today. But is it ok if we ring you tomorrow around about 2pm to record a message"
"Yeah, ok. Talk to you tomorrow"
So, anyway today i got a call from radio 1:-
" Hi Alex Its becky again, How are you?"
" Yes Im well, how are you?"
" Im good thank you, Im just gonna put you through to Scott"
" errrr, ok"
" Hi Is that Alex"
" Its scott Mills here"
He just ran though what I had to do and everything. And he started it off.
"right here is the new Tune from elbow, whats it called?" And I go "Forget myself". "Who am I talking to?". "Alex" Hi mate where are you from " Brighton", "ok, Alex what are you doing today?". I wanted to say something clever, but I just done the text book answer "Im just working". "Why do you want this tune?" once again didnt know what to say so i said "I think its a good tune and I love it" "well here it is Elbow - Forget myself here on Radio 1". And that was it, he said thanks and everything and told me it will be on on sunday (I think he's doing the chart show). But before he went I (very cheekerly) asked if I could ponce the album from Radio 1. He said No, if your a fan you should buy it. I then told him that I was poor, and then said you cant blame a guy for trying. He laugh his arse off and said sorry mate I cant. But anyway, how random is that?! I only texted for a laugh, now Im gonna be on the chart show on sunday.
Jesus christ, I really hope that they dont put me trying to blag a album in on there. I will feel like a right dick head!
Anyway everyone, listen to it. Radio 1, Sunday. Alex888 is on da radio!!!!!!
