Five Days, Four Days, One Day and an Outside Broadcast for 2CC

As 2CC Listeners would know, Mike Welsh is currently on holidays for two weeks, however the way it is being dealt with is rather interesting.

For the five days of the drive show last week we had Mike Frame, this week for four days (Monday-Thursday) we have Pete Williams, who filled in for Mike Jeffreys on the breakfast show on Australia Day. Friday will see Mike Frame return with an outside broadcast from the grand opening of the new Bunnings store in Belconnen.

Friday will be odd for me. From 9am-2pm I have a CIT class called “Preparing for employment in your chosen profession” which sounds like an extended “please rate the following aspects of your industry by their importance” survey-a-thon. Ultimately this class (as long as it sticks to its name) is irrelevant drivel to me as I have already worked in my “chosen profession”. There will be angry letters if there isn’t at the very least a morning tea and lunch break, preferably one of them being encompassing 11:30-midday so that I don’t have to miss Best Of Laws. If I do miss it then I will just have to listen to it on Lawsie’s website [1].

After this class I will make my way out to the new Bunnings store in Belconnen (approximately 10-15 minutes walk from the bus interchange) and watch the outside broadcast for a while. With any luck, this Bunnings, just like the one in Tuggeranong, will have a mini-cafe.

Afterwards I will make my way home and, depending on the temperature, take Nattie for a walk.

Anyway, getting back to 2CC, I remember hearing Pete Williams on Australia Day, but only briefly as I slept through most of the breakfast show and didn’t pay much attention to the bits that I did hear. It will be interesting to see how Pete goes on the drive show.

Samuel, you neglect to mention exactly what time you will at Bunnings Belconnen this Friday.

Can I calculate that it will be from 2:45 pm onwards?

That would be a reasonable assumption.

I neglected to provide a time as I can’t be sure of all the details, classes tend to be impossible to predict, my need for coffee prior to walking from the Belconnen bus interchange to Bunnings remains to be seen etc.

Bunnings have taken out a few pages in The Chronicle this week, which I will reproduce for your benefit.

I will also be ensuring that the memory card in my camera is cleared prior to leaving the house on Friday, so that I can provide some decent coverage (conditions permitting).

With any luck I should be able to provide some video of the event, although don’t expect great sound or video quality from my camera, it does a decent job, but it isn’t a video camera replacement.

As previously stated in a few posts here on Samuel’s Blog, it is a public place, and I have no problem with meeting readers in a public place. I intend on being there for about an hour.
