Please provide a link so that we can view your segment on Coxy's Big Break.

I have missed it tonight and I am devastated. I will truly not sleep s resut.

I had it diarised for about a month. I knew it was happening this morning. I mentioned it to my hubbie to remind me (he is in the poo) and we got busy cleaning up our op shop finds from shopping today and bloody missed it.

Please tell me how I can view it.

Did you tape your December 2010 radio segement? If yes, can you please post a link on your blog to listen to this.

Also, can you post a link to your featured segement on Coxy tonight. I missed it.

Thanks Karen

Anon - so sorry you missed it!!! I am going to be sent a DVD this week, and will have to figure out how I can transfer it to youtube or something. I'm not that technically minded, so will have to seek help to do so, but will try to post ASAP!

This was the link to my December 2010 radio segment, but it doesn't appear to be working now :(

Thanks Erica from Anon, you are a gem to have tracked it down. I loved the segment but it was too short! Would love to have seen more. Coxy could have done a whole show on op shopping! Does anyone in the op shop world know anyone in TV who op shops? This TV contact could present the idea to the networks. What do you think?

Anon. Thanks for your nice comments. I think you're right, there is potential for a whole show/series on op shopping; going 'behind the scenes', talking to the staff, regular shoppers etc. The thought crossed my mind too..
