Piece Comment

Review of Ecobikes Dublin

I should say that the producer of this piece contacted me and asked me to write this review. I asked him, "What if I hate it?" And he said, "Write about it anyway." This is a little slice-of-life piece about ... something. I'm not really sure what. There's no scripted introduction for a station's announcer to read before the piece, so as a listener I'm left wondering -- throughout the piece -- what is the thing that this story is about? That -- it seems to me -- is a basic fact that a reporter might put into a piece.
