If you want to achieve something, just go and do it... 2 weeks ago, I waited at the side of the road near a bus stop in Manchester for 45 minutes hoping that the lady I passed on the street going to get Sushi, post sound check really was Mary Anne Hobbs.
That was of course when I finally got the right day, trekking all the way out to a venue when someone isn't playing feels great by the way.
Anyway, it worked, sweaty palms and all. I'm very grateful she was willing to take a cd off a complete stranger on the street, not far looking from a hobo, and actually give it a listen.
And here it is, on national radio... Thankyou so much to @maryannehobbs for playing 'Let Me Guide You Through My Neurosis' on her @bbc6music Recommends show.
