Sound Women podcast 6: sound partnership Annabel Port and Geoff Lloyd


In this month’s podcast, I hear from both sides of one of British radio’s finest mixed doubles: Annabel Port and Geoff Lloyd of Absolute Radio.

Annabel reveals her Damascene conversion to radio, how she lost her social inhibitions, why doing a breakfast show ruined her personality, how to keep an on-air partnership fresh, and why she has tricky relationships with Topshop and the Harlem Globetrotters.

Geoff describes how he discovered Annabel, vents about the Women Aren’t Funny brigade, and insists that radio listeners are not unwashed mutants. Also, in the Sound Women members only audio snippet, he contemplates the BBC Desk Of Death.
