Sharp Pains Shortlisted for New York Radio Award!

I feel a numpty posting this because it’s actually old news, newly discovered, but back in April (April 1st, which probably explains it) Sharp Pains was shortlisted by the New York Festivals Radio Awards in the Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program category! It didn’t win (obvs) and being a humble 10 min monthly slot, I wasn’t even sure it qualified. But I’m pumped to learn it DID make the shortlist 3 months after it was announced!!! The Bake Fail episode was also an Official Select of another fantabulous festival in New York in March, the 2022 On Air Fest (which I did know about). I ❤️ NY! 

After two years, Sharp Pains is taking a short break from the airwaves but will be back on the air soon! Look out for new episodes on Ahmed Elbeshlawy‘s Voice Your Passion channel on YouTube, where it is cultivating a new audience of poetry fans! (Poetic Injustice?) The Bake Fail episode has just gone live! It was also published in the SCMP‘s Post Magazine as A Piece of Cake earlier this month. Catch up with missed episodes on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show here!
