Sharing time with Gene—on the BBC!

For those who missed it, BBC Radio 5's Up All Night saw fit to mark Star Trek's 43rd birthday Monday night with a live show that featured moi and some audio clips of Gene talking at the *1968* WorldCon--i.e., just as the massive mail campaign engineered by Bjo Trimble saved TOS for a third season, and guarranteed enough eps to eventually syndicate it in the 1970s and lead to The-Rest-Is-History-land.

Our bit was hardly Shakespeare, but a lot of fun; the other guest, Devin Faraci of chud.com, and I held our ground against a couple of sympathetic Brit rowdies!

The 25-ish minute segment will still be online for 6 more days here — check there for the 08 September shows, but go to time index 0238 (2:38) out of the four-hour program.

Pacifica Radio in the U.S. also partners and runs it as part of their From the Vault series—check here for your local times and stations for this week.
