Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: You should be peeing on your tomatoes. Bad news for Titanic The Musical. Curry is the way to find the love of your life. Miscommunication. A gender bender. The return of the woolly mammoth. Almost embarrassed in Asda. Another business idea that could make you […]


You can learn a lot about the reaction to the gender pay gap from westerns. In most western movies, the plot revolves around the quest to right wrongs. Sheriff’s, Marshalls, members of posses and lone gunslingers set out to avenge a wrongful death, protect ranchers from rustlers or just get even. Exposing the gender pay […]


I had a chat with guitar legend, Andy Summers from The Police. He talks about his HARMONICS OF THE NIGHT tour, his current album, Triboluminescence, photography, writing, why he doesn’t sing on albums anymore, his relationship with the British press and what Bournemouth and Santa Monica have in common. Craic on! If you enjoyed this […]


London Calling

In the latest episode of my show for America, part 2 of my chat with British satirist Tony Hendra. He lives in New York and talks about alcohol, his amazing life and work, which touches Monty Python, Saturday Night Live, George Carlin and beyond. He explains how he discovered John Belushi and Chevy Chase and […]


Ken Dodd

12Mar18

“Ken Dodd’s backstage timing his act – with a calendar”. I’m pretty sure it was Bob Monkhouse who said that at one of the Royal Variety shows. I never got to meet Doddy, but I was lucky enough to see him perform live and once I interviewed him over the phone for my radio show. […]


Carmageddon

06Mar18

Filthy fossil fuel burning cars are here to stay, unfortunately. Electric vehicles should be the future of transport. Vehicles that burn fossil fuels are putting toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. Electric vehicles will not catch on in Britain unless there’s a big change. Unfortunately there is no sign of that change any time soon. The […]


London Calling

In the latest episode of my show for America: A first car quirk inspired by Lord Alan Sugar. The reason the world is out of whack right now. The leader gets thrown out of the political party of self-harm. An Out of Africa experience. The British pub that sells groceries. How India has ripped off […]


Ever wonder why the world is out of whack right now? Donald Trump is the President, North and South Korea are competing TOGETHER in the Winter Olympics and there’s a sports car in space! It’s all because we’re living in a parallel universe. The proof is a thing called “The Mandela Effect”. That’s the name […]


There’s a sports car on the way to Mars! It’s the most exciting thing to happen in space since we sent people to the moon. I watched the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy last night and it was mind blowing. When the two booster rockets landed simultaneously it looked like a scene from Thunderbirds. […]

Creeps

Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey.  They say, her song “Get Free”, sounds like their song from 1993, “Creep”. Here’s Lana Delray… And here’s Radiohead… The thing is, ‘Creep’, was actually a rip-off of “The Air That I Breathe”, which was a hit for The Hollies in 1974… Here’s The Moon Loungers showing how close […]

In the latest episode of my show for America, it’s the second part of my chat with retired NASA astronaut, Terry Virts. Colonel Virts talks about his scariest moment on the International Space Station and why NASA’s Deep Space Gateway is a bad idea. As well as that, Lyn talks about the worst Christmas present […]


The Name Game

03Jan18

A caller to my radio show called me a “Remoaner” today. – I thought, is that all you’ve got, name calling? Instead of explaining to me just how these dinky little islands off the coast of northern Europe would be better off without being part of an international organisation which is the biggest tariff-free trade […]

Dash Scam

22Dec17

If you’re thinking of getting a dashcam fitted to your car, DON’T get the one I got! Unless you enjoy spending ever increasing amounts of money on software and SD cards and have hours of spare time to faff about with it, this dashcam is not for you. I thought I wanted one for Christmas, […]


London Calling

In the latest episode of my show for America; Prince Harry and Meghan Markle discussed with Jim McCabe from Philadelphia. Why Blade Runner doesn’t predict the future. Roger is leaving Britain because of Brexit. Why the British Prime Minister must LOVE Donald Trump. A brush with wildlife. When following procedure makes you sound like an […]

The US has blamed North Korea for the “WannaCry” computer virus. – I blame Bill Gates. The White House Homeland Security adviser, Tom Bossert said North Korea was “directly responsible” for the WannaCry malware attack that hit hospitals, businesses and banks across the world earlier this year. The thing that’s not widely reported after these […]


Britain’s Brexit nightmare continues. The head of the European Council says the UK and the EU face a “furious race against time” to finalise Brexit talks before March 2019. Meanwhile the British government has lost a vote in the House of Commons because parliament wants the right to vote on the final terms of the […]


Predicting the future is not worth it because eventually you get proved wrong. I’m going to download the new Blade Runner film, “Blade Runner 2049”. I can’t remember much about the original film, so I decided to watch it again before I watch the new one. What a disappointment it is. I suppose when it […]


Top Trump

One day, people will realise that there is no negotiation going on, Britain is powerless because we have no leverage.
