Title: Daniel Interviewed on BBC Radio 2
Post by: colzilla23 on September 23, 2007, 03:55:09 PM
Hi all!
This is my first post here. Daniel was interviewed Saturday night on BBC Radio 2 here in the UK. It was on the 'Russell Brand Show'. Russell is a well known comedian here in the UK and is also a very big fan of Daniel. Basically at the moment on the website yesterdays show is not yet available to be listened too again. I do however have it downloaded myself. I'm not sure on the rules regarding links here. If it is allowed I would be more than happy to upload it for you guys to listen to. It is a fun interview and I think you all would enjoy it.
Colin

Hey thanks for the welcome. The interview is a little under 6 minutes. I've uploaded it for everyone. Oh and enjoy.

It doesn't seem to work for me. The Megaupload page comes up,
and the file name, but no "play" or player.

So what am I doing wrong?

On the page enter the 3 letter code into the box.
It will then take 45 seconds to load.
You will be prompted to play or save.
It will download and based on wether you chose save or play will either save the file onto your computer where you can play it in your media player or it willopen straight into your media player.  8-)

"Who is Vic Chesnut?" Really?
Well, let's clear that up right now:

I think Mr. Brand needs to switch to decaf.
Phew!

personally, I think the guy giving the interview is a nimwit.... he obviously doesn't understand mental illnesses and I think at times he is downright dis-respectful towards Daniel... he laughs at his struggles with manic depression... Daniel on the otherhand is very gracious and takes the whole thing in stride... not to mention Daniel is better spoken than that dork... just one man's opinion though

I've never heard of Mr. Brand before, but he seems inoffensive enough here, if not altogether well-versed on his subject. At least there's no apparent need to cut off any snide, negative comments, as I had to do with Andy Langer at the conclusion of the following clip:

(PS: The normally unemotional Langer pulled me aside at the 2006 Austin Music Awards to gushingly thank me for "forcing" him to buy a small stack of Daniel's drawings from a local comic book store for $5-$10 each a few years earlier, despite his own relative lack of appreciation for Daniel's art style at that time!.)

russell brand is hilarious if you listen to his radio show. i know he can be annoying when you see him popping up everywhere on tv, but if you give him a chance and listen to his radio show you might actually start to like him. i used to find him sooooo annoying, but i now feel he's one of the funniest men around.


THIS INTERVIEW WAS THE FIRST I EVER HEARD OF DANIEL JOHNSTON!! i've been a fan ever since!!
