Justin Lee Collins Interview – it’s here!!!

jlcI recently had the genuine pleasure of chatting to a man who loves 80s TV shows so much, he tried to arrange reunions for the original stars of Fame, Dallas, Grange Hill and The A-Team. He’s a radio presenter, a lover of Conventions and he has maybe the best hair of anyone I’ve ever spoken to. It was the lovely Justin Lee Collins.

In preparation for this interview I had written about 30 questions. To my mind, 30 questions would make a good 30 to 40 minute interview. That was how it worked on previous interviews, so I stuck to the formula. I hadn’t planned on Justin being so thorough with his answers and generous with his time.

In the end I only asked about 8 scripted questions and our chat went on for a full 90 glorious minutes.

We discussed TV, Music, Toys and Games, Bring Back, Convention Crashers, Friday Night Project… it was THE most thorough chat I’ve had in a long time and I don’t mind saying I enjoyed it SO much.  I think “JLC Chats To” would make a great podcast series.
