Mack’s Craic.

Gavin Jones & Scott Gorham

The world didn’t end on May 21st. A lot of people, who thought it would, sold everything they owned. I wonder what they thought they were going to do with the money. When the world was still there on the Sunday morning, the Californian evangelist that predicted Armageddon seemed pretty unhappy. I don’t know why, after all, it’s not the end of the world!

I interviewed the West Regional Manager of First Great Western Trains on the show this week. Unfortunately he was on the phone. If he’d have come into the studio, I could have make him wait, told him the interview had been delayed and then made him stand because all of the seats are taken. I really want to interview someone from Virgin trains. Have you been on one of those? Don’t sit near the toilets, they stink. I think the Pendolino train was the Italians way of combining their love of speed with their primitive plumbing.

It turns out that the ‘Butcher of Bosnia’ Ratko Mladic IS fit enough to stand trial. Unfortunately his victims are not alive enough to testify against him.

Hi to Scott Gorham from Thin Lizzy. He made a Rock ‘n’ Roll dream come true the other day. The lead guitar player in The Graham Mack Rock Band is Gavin Jones, the Chief Executive of Swindon Borough Council. Scott is his guitar hero. I got the two of them to jam together live on the air. I’ve never seen Gavin so nervous!

Sarah Palin looks like she’s running for president, the boss of the IMF is in jail and  Paulo Di Canio is the boss of Swindon Town. – Are we SURE the world didn’t end?

Another Craic Factor soon!
