Countdown to Bloomsday 2012: BBC Radio 4 Broadcast

BBC coverage starts at 9:10 am and continues in 7 episodes through to at least midnight. The Radio 4 Ulysses page has all the details, as well as other interesting links, including a virtual tour of  Dublin locations in the novel.

It’s been great fun putting together this Countdown, made even more so by the collaboration with Turbidus, who brought real knowledge to her choices where mine were often serendipitous. Tomorrow I will be raising a pint of Guinness to her, across the Atlantic.

Tomorrow is also the Fremont Fair in Seattle, with its Summer Solstice Parade and Pageant, led off by the massed ranks of naked cyclists. I think Bloom would have approved. Now if you could only combine the two celebrations…

Finally, I wanted to show you the beating heart of Beautiful Railway Bridge, the place where the magic happens. Notice the state of the art sound system and my guardian angel, Chucky.
