When someone is out to get you and you’re fighting a losing battle, the only thing you can do is have some fun at their expense. Things weren’t going well for me at the tail end of 2003. I was presenting the Breakfast Show on 106 Century FM in the East Midlands of England. The […]


I never liked Porsche, I always preferred Jaguars. Then about three years ago, something changed. Maybe it’s an age thing, Porsches started to talk to me.
