Bill on Radio 4 – Sunday’s Open Book

Posted by Bombyx Mori on May 7th, 2010

Bill will be on Sunday’s Open Book on Radio 4 at 4pm (repeated on Thursday 13 May at the same time) chatting about Somerset Maugham. We are informed that it will be the final (and most substantial) item in the programme, although we would, of course, encourage you to listen to the whole show.

It’ll also be available via the web and as part of the Books and Authors podcast. Don’t say we never tell you nothing (for a start, that would be well bad English).

Watch out! Bill’s about (today and tomorrow)

Posted by Bombyx Mori on May 8th, 2009

Today you can hear Bill on Radio 5 Live with Simon Mayo at 2pm, and then at 3pm tune in to BBC 6 when he’ll be chatting with Nemone.

Tomorrow morning (Saturday 9 May) you’ll be able to see him on Sky News Sunrise at 8.45am.

And all this so he can get you in the mood to watch Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra on Saturday 9 May at 9.40pm on BBC2.

Must dash and make sure Bill gets to bed on time now. Cheerio.
