The Knack: How to get out of bed in the morning
Saturday 17 January 1998
With this in mind, I have been known to arrive late. Once, not only did I sleep in but so did my producer and the only other person on the show was too ill to come in. There was an empty studio and major panic. So, obviously, getting out of bed is quite a problem for most of us.
I have various appliances that I rely on to wake me up. Two alarm clock-radios, a big alarm clock, and I always book a wake-up call for every morning. Failing these, my producer will ring me if I'm not in the studio by a certain time - not much use in the instance above, obviously! I put the radio on straight away and listen to the presenter who's on before me, and he normally wakes me up by saying something funny. So that's what I try to do for everyone else when I'm on the air. Fiona McClymont
