The latest audiobook I’ve done is a cracker. It’s got everything, cops, robbers and musicians, it’s mostly set in Liverpool. It’s called ‘The Memorabilia Man’ and was written by the Liverpool author Charlie Wood. For this one, I had to perform over forty different characters. As most of them are scouse, I used members of […]

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 […]

Shelf Life

Why don’t you hear wind-up calls on the radio anymore? It could be because they got played out, overdone. The best way to devalue something is to do lots of it, scarcity adds value. Then again, wind-ups may have stopped because things can go horribly wrong. When I worked on the air in Australia, I […]


This month marks 30 years since BBC Wiltshire started. I presented the Breakfast Show on Swindon’s BBC Wiltshire from 2010 to 2012 and was lucky enough to win a Gold Sony Radio Academy Award for “Breakfast Show Of The Year”, the “Program Presenter Award” Gold at the BBC Gillards, “Best Radio Personality” bronze and “Best […]


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 […]

  “Oh, I thought you farted!”. That’s what Julie said last night as we sat on the couch watching telly and I reached into my pocket and got out my mobile phone which had just vibrated to let me know I had a text. Next time I need to fart on the couch, I won’t […]


If I didn’t bunk into 1st class every day, I would have to stand. I travel on the 7:11 Thameslink from Hitchin to London Blackfriars every weekday. It doesn’t bother me that I don’t have a first class ticket. My monthly season ticket is £409.40 and that’s supposed to include a seat so the only […]

In the latest episode of my show for America; Storm Aileen hits Britain. Do you brush your teeth in the shower? Speed cameras. Where will the next royal baby be born? Houseguests from hell. Do public holidays cause panda pregnancies in Scotland? A phone scam. Confusion over the new iPhones. Offensive candy. A conversation about […]


Do you brush your teeth in the shower? A major debate has broken out on Twitter. Some people say it’s the way to go but others say it’s just plain weird. I brush my teeth in the shower because I have a shower rather than a bath. And peeing in the bath is disgusting. Craic […]
