look mum, i'm on the bbc!!!

Wow. i had an email a while ago from a nice lady from the bbc radio station called radio one. for those who dont live in england radio one is a very popular station that young people listen to as they play mainly pop music. i heard that it is on a sirriuous radio too in america. anyway they wanted to do a documentary about podcasting and asked me if they could use some bits of my show. this week they have put it online and you can listen to it by going to this link. it has me at the end and has edith bowman presenting it. ram files arent like mp3 files and load up a program called realplayer with loads of adverts on it, that must be how the bbc make all their money.

in england everyone pays around £100 pounds to contribute to the bbc. we get 5 channels of national radio, lots of local radio and 2 main tv channels plus loads of channels on cable. now the bbc is podcasting it means everyone gets to enjoy it. its like if i owned a car and paid for car tax which pays for the roads to be maintained in england, the country would send workmen over to the rest of the world to maintain their roads for free.

i had some thouhgts about making money that i'm going to talk about soon. but i'm too tired to record a podcast tonight so maybe another night. im off to bed.

Roger,
I hope you get stinking famous and filthy rich, and have lots of "pretty girls" crawling all over you... you deserve it, mate!

Adam Curry should make you a correspondent. Your work on the blog and podcast is some of the best and most original stuff out there.

Roger, congratulations on the Radio One exposure. It was a great program and it sounded like the presenter really fancied you. Does she fit your idea of a 'pretty girl'?

I;m not getting my hopes up with girls at the moment. but i think that will go on radio 1 on the 22nd in the evening - if you are from america and pay for sirious then it is on there too. america has serious time delayed so that all the evening shows are actually on in the evening in america. i wish i would get sirous in the uk as it sounds like there is so much on there.

Was it just me that thought they were a bit too anti-podcast? (present company excepted) They must be scared they'll lose listeners to Radio Clash!

It's about time you got on the radio Roger, perhaps with your new found fame you should offer to stand in for Moyles next time he goes on holiday!

Watch this One to Trad,e!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!
