Congratulations to blogjam readers, who have now listened to more than 1000 hours of blogjam radio. This makes me the most popular personal channel at Last FM, more than 600 hours ahead of the next most listened-to station.

Smallprint: It’s entirely possible that I’m personally responsible for listening to the bulk of those 1000 hours, and that my taste in music isn’t nearly as attractive to others as I like to pretend.

In other news, I have what we single folk term ‘a blind date’ tomorrow night. Long-term readers will know that I very rarely talk about other people I know or meet in these pages – I just don’t think it’s fair unless they’ve also elected to go online and embarass themselves on a regular basis as I have – and I’m not going to start now. So I’m not going to tell you how it goes. Unless, of course, it’s a disaster, and I can seize yet another opportunity to triumphantly humiliate myself in public.


  1. I still don’t understand why anyone would dedicate the bulk of their bandwidth to listen to someone’s internet radio station.

  2. I’ve got unlimited bandwidth, so ner.

  3. Best of luck for tomorrow Fraser.

    If it goes well then you have some fun times ahead.

    If it goes bad then you will have at least a fwe post worth of content for here.

    Win-Win if you ask me!

  4. Oh go on. How bored can you be for an hour? Unless she starts talking about hobbits, of course. At that point, I think you have to remember that your house is burning down, and leave gracefully.
