This is for all of the people who said they want to hear more from 82 year old Winston Harbottle. I presented the Breakfast Show at TFM on Teesside from July 2006 to May 2010. This is what happened when Winston called a pet shop. If you enjoyed this Craic, please click “like” and tweet […]


I got to talk to the hosts of “You Didn’t Let Me Finish!” which is a great true crime podcast. Victoria and Ben are broadcast journalists who are using lockdown as an excuse to exploit Ben’s (at times grim) specialism. Free murder tips included! We talked about crimes, why the podcast has such a jolly […]

I chatted to Suruthi for my show, ‘The Pod 20’ on Podcast Radio which you can hear on Fridays at 5pm (UK Time) on DAB in London, The […]


I was reminded of The Who song. “We Won’t Get Fooled Again” this weekend. Since March this year, I’ve been producing audiobooks. Last month I got ripped off.  I accepted a project through ACX.com the Audiobook Creation Exchange. The audiobook was a series of ten, one hour meditations. When I’d finished the work and loaded […]


Jemma Moore

I got to talk to Jemma Moore, one of the stars of ‘HOST’. It’s the movie that’s fast becoming the biggest hit of lockdown. We also talk about her part in ‘Doom: Annihilation’, how to do an American accent, being a movie producer, voiceover, growing up, and Jemma’s podcast, The Hobbycast. If you enjoyed this […]


Free Audiobook!

The latest audiobook I’ve produced has just been released and it’s a really good one, my favourite so far! It’s called, “Spitfire Final Flight – The Incredible Story of 36 Burmese Spitfires and the Extraordinary Plan to Steal One” By: DG Leigh. Suffering from the later stages of Alzheimer’s, Captain Tom “Winkle” Brown is a […]


Julie was the victim of a crime on Friday. She works in a shop and they play music through Spotify. They just plug an old iPhone into the sound system. The phone is so old, it won’t hold a charge and when they plug it into the mains it crackles, so Julie has been connecting […]


Johnny B. Good!

22Jul20

The people who say you should never meet your heroes don’t have a hero called Jonathon Brandmeier. Johnny is a Chicago radio legend who I’ve listened to on the air, online and before that, cassette (does anyone remember California Aircheck?) since I got into radio in the early 90s. I was lucky enough to meet […]

Like a lot of people, during lockdown, I’ve been working from home. I present “The Pod 20” on Podcast Radio and do all of my audiobook producing and narrating from my home studio as well. If you’re a broadcaster or podcaster or want to get into it, here’s the technical and not so technical spec: […]


Alan Alda

29May20

I got to have a chat with the wonderful Alan Alda. We talked about M*A*S*H, his Dad, face blindness, the Orient Express, not signing autographs, Parkinson’s, playing a Republican and his podcast, Clear And Vivid. He even gave me an acting tip to use when I narrate audiobooks. Craic on! If you enjoyed this Craic, […]

I hope time travel wasn’t invented twenty years ago. More people are using tiny wireless headphones these days. They’re not all listening to music, a lot of them are talking on the phone. Wireless headphones are getting smaller, you can’t always see them. I commute into central London every day and it looks like every […]


“Did you just pay for that with your finger?” That’s what the lady at the Black Sheep coffee shop said when I paid for my order today. I used my new K Ring: the world’s first contactless payment ring. I’ve been wearing it for about three weeks now and it’s great. A bloke called Steve […]

London Calling

05May19

I really enjoy working in London every day. Everywhere you look is a photo opportunity. I took this one a few days ago when I got off the train at Blackfriars just after 6am. I’ve been at Fix Radio since July last year, it’s not the first time I’ve worked in the capital. In 2012 […]

Here’s what I’ve been on about with Gaz Drinkwater on Fix Radio Manchester lately, including; The Indian blues singer. Why being a radio presenter is like being a stripper. Clint Eastwood movie or condom? Show us your tips. Inappropriate Mother’s Day cards. The truth about caffeine shampoo. Why cyclists is a dirty word. Boob sizes […]


Why do we have to speak Italian for ONE WORD? That’s what happens when you order a coffee. I drink black decaf, so I don’t need to know the difference between a cappuccino, frappuccino, cup-a-tea-no, macchiato, mocha soccer, happy shopper, snotty, spotty moriarty, Russell Harty, it’s-my-party or farty latte, but I do have to order […]
