Talk of weapons of mass destruction suddenly quietened down a bit after the invasion of Iraq. But now nuclear weapon proliferation is back in the news. The major powers are again at odds as to what to do about Iran and North Korea's interest in the bomb. While Europe, America, China and Russia may disagree on how to handle the thermonuclear aficionados, they all agree more proliferation is a bad thing. WIRE Producer extraordinaire David Belgrave last week spoke to security expert Dr Paul Buchanan about proliferation.
12.35 Conor Mc Nicholas and Rachel Hendry.
I caught up with the NME ed and his mate, independent publicist Rachel Hendry while they were in town for Resonate. Its nice to have the editor of the NME in a small room for a half hour, if only to give my employment prospects a little boost. I started by asking Conor about the relationship between music and the music press. NME rules the indie roost-how much of a Kingmaker is the NME and how much unfounded hype is the mag responsible for??
