 (L-R) Tony Blackburn, me, Christina Lamb

Radio 4 presenter Paddy O'Connell and me

Really enjoyed my time on BBC Radio 4's 'Broadcasting House' programme on Sunday morning.  

I was on with the radio DJ legend Tony Blackburn and Christina Lamb, author and Foreign Correspondent for The Sunday Times, along with our host Paddy O'Connell.  

We had a great time trawling through the papers for the stories that grabbed our attention.  In the mix were the current hot topic about the UK being a 'post Christian nation', the tragic helicopter accident in Afghanistan, the threat to mangos(!) by a certain type of white fly which means imports to the UK may be stopped, and the film remake of Dad's Army!  Quite a mix which ensured a lively debate!

Hope you got to hear it.  If not, click here for the link to the recording and just scroll through to 43:54 for the relevant section. 

Follow Patrick on his Website, on Facebook and on Twitter.

Patrick will be LIVE in concert on 9th June 2014 at St John's Smith Square.  Click here to book your tickets.

Classic FM - LIVE web chat

Earlier this week I was Classic FM's guest on their Wednesday Web Chat, where I was available to take questions from presenter Tim Lihoreau and the Classic FM audience about me and my work.  If you missed it you can still see the conversation thread here.

Amazing news!  Just heard that Angel has gone to NUMBER ONE in the classical charts! Thank you to all of you who have bought a copy and spread the word. 

It's a real landmark in my career and something I have dreamed of for years, and for all the hard work to finally come to fruition is a great feeling.

Please keep telling your family and friends about the album so we can now keep it at the top spot!
