Why aren’t presenters on music radio stations putting callers on the air? I read a tweet this week from @Aircheck, the social networking site for radio. They were asking if a person who calls in with traffic information should be referred to on the air as a “listener” or a “caller”. I replied with, “Why […]

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 […]

Is radio finished? I never listen to the radio anymore. I listen to a lot of radio stations but not on a device that picks up broadcast audio through AM, FM or DAB. I listen online. At work, I listen through a PC, at home though my iMac, my Macbook, or my Amazon Echo. In […]

According to the bible “censuses are immoral” – and God killed 70,000 innocent counted Jews to punish David for counting them… It’s interesting that the latest census information we have shows that atheism is more popular in Britain than any religion. The figures show that the proportion of the population who identify themselves as having […]


Radio is more powerful than God. I say that because I used to work for a commercial radio station that had a christian church as an advertiser. God is all-powerful and omnipresent but it turns out that he doesn’t have the same ability to influence people’s behaviour as radio does. Craic on! Listen to the […]


The big difference between working in radio and and working in television is the time everything takes. In radio, things happen fast. You have an idea, grab some music and sound effects and away you go. In television there’s make-up, lighting, costumes and so many people involved, I don’t know what they all do. In […]
