A few years before the turn of last century a young man embarked on a journey. Actually, it was more of a quest.. perhaps a saga. Whatever, it involved buying a cd over the internet in the days when it was relatively easy to buy a cd over the internet anywhere, apart from a Melbourne suburb.
Eight months and a quarter of a million emails later, the cd arrived. Undaunted the man set about reformatting those emails into something resembling a script, sold the idea to Radio New Zealand, engaged some actors and recorded an audio feature, padding it out with some music. Luckily, he had a cd.
Ross Ryan, Connie and Me has played several times on RNZ to an enthusiastic reception notably from Ross Ryan and me. Connie Person, marketing guru, has been strangely quiet.
