Call out for the open mic! It would be a great help to On the Record and the MC, Bernadette Halpin, if you would agree to step up and entertain for the common good - or you could nominate an acquaintance or colleague who you would like to see read/perform and put us in touch with them. Let us know if you have a piece of writing in mind which you don't have access to. Please register your interest in the open mic by emailing us: email@example.com
