Interview with Burnsy, BBC Radio Humberside, 23 March 2012

The man they call 'Burnsy'

Another day, another chance to crap on about the merits of Humberside crime fiction, the late great John Peel and of course tout Frank's Wild Years like an East Lane shmutter merchant. The interview kicks in at around 2hrs 36minutes. Click HERE for the link.

I'll be signing books at Waterstones in Grimsby tomorrow for around 11am. More than likely, I'll be the one with a bloody huge banner and a slightly self-conscious grin.

And for the record, I was a tad disappointed to find that the man they call 'Burnsy' is none of these ...


not even ...

...but he did turn out to be an all round decent bloke who was genuinely interested in the book, its links to the area and the story behind it. And if that sounds like I'm making the case for local radio, too right.
