Just found out that Janeane Garofalo is not going to be interviewed. Was on another site and saw that Janeane, who was supposed to be interviewed today, instead filmed an episode of BBC music game show Never Mind the Buzzcocks. In her place it's going to be Maria Doyle Kennedy and Shane McGowan.

It's a pity. I was looking forward to the interview. Perhaps she'll come to Toronto for an interview. I wonder what happened. I do not even know why she was in Dublin in the first place.

Thanks for the heads up Voicefax... changes are made.

voicefax said...

You're welcome Barbara. BTW, I wonder why these three episodes have not been put up on the official site like all the other interviews. I missed Thursday's and I would have liked to see the Tommy Tiernan interview.

And what about that Maria Doyle Kennedy / Shane MacGowan episode? Is it online already?

Barbara said...

Zuzana I could not find it. maybe on Monday.

Barbara said...

Zuzana said...

Thanks Barbara, but all I can hear when clicking on the episode is "This content is currently unavailable". :( Any idea what is wrong?
