Former Labour leader, Ed Miliband ended up interviewing Geoff Lloyd in the last in the series of Geoff Lloyd’s Hometown Glory on the national digital station Union JACK Radio.
Geoff’s comedy series sees him interviewing comedians and famous faces. Using Google Maps, he takes guests on a trip down memory lane.
In the last in the current series, which will be aired this Saturday, Ed Miliband turns the tables and steps into Lloyd’s shoes, with Lloyd himself becoming the interview subject at Miliband’s mercy.
Ed is no stranger to the world of broadcasting and knows Geoff well. They host a podcast, Reasons to be Cheerful together, which was recently nominated for a Broadcasting Press Guild Award.
The interview shows that Ed and Geoff get on well with Miliband likening his radio takeover to a military coup, singing lines from the famous Buggles’ hit Video Killed the Radio Star, and quizzing Lloyd about the fact that his mum was still doing his laundry for him at the age of 27.
Geoff Lloyd’s Hometown Glory launched on Union JACK radio in March last year and is now in its third series. It’s featured interviews with a range of people, including 80’s star Paul Young, footballer Peter Shilton, The Chase’s Anne Hegerty and Love Actually star Marcus Brigstocke.
