Here’s what is written in the latest edition of TALKERS magazine; British Talk Show Host and TalkersRadio Personality Graham Mack Forced to Apologize for On Air Statement that PM Theresa May “Has No Balls.”  It is always fascinating to compare and contrast American radio with broadcasting in other English-speaking countries when it comes to tolerance, freedom […]


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 […]

Did British radio stations make a big mistake when they got rid of their old local names and replace them with generic national “Brands”? Instead of local radio stations being called names like Leicester Sound, Ram FM, Red Dragon, 2CR and GWR, a lot of them became, “Heart” or “Capital”. One of the biggest selling […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BBC Radio Merseyside lately: The party without a DJ. A houseguest from hell. A bonfire night surprise. The baggage handler who went nuts. Cultural differences. A fancy dress story. Buyers remorse. Revenge on Henry Ford. The fourth dimension. A tribute to Keith Chegwin. Caught the bus, should have […]


Disney has made a big mistake. Why did Rupert Murdoch sell Twenty-First Century Fox inc to Disney? The answer should be obvious but the mainstream media seem confused by the sale and it’s timing, and keep trotting out the line that it’s got something to do with competing with Netflix and Amazon. If you haven’t […]


Dash Scam

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, […]

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 […]


So sad to hear that Keith Chegwin has died at the age of 60. I’ve met him and interviewed him a few times. I wish I’d kept the photos of us together and the audio of our chats. I know I used to have some and don’t know why I haven’t kept them. Maybe it’s […]


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 […]


A lot of socialists believe in nationalised industries. A leaked Labour manifesto from earlier this year proposed a partial re-nationalisation of some of Britain’s biggest firms. Britain used to have a lot of nationalised businesses. They were owned by the state and included coal mining, steel manufacture, water, electricity and the railways. Nowadays, these industries […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including; Archie attacked by an animal and his mother doesn’t care. Excess packaging. Darren still misses his stylophone. Badger and the safe bet. The way to tell if food isn’t really that tasty. Jesus the sausage roll. A shopping nightmare. Banned from turning on the Christmas […]


Camera Obscura

Sometimes following procedure makes you sound like an idiot. My Christmas present this year is a dash cams. I want to get one hard wired into my car. Before I go ahead and do this, I need to know how this will affect my warranty. I called up the main dealer and told the lady […]

Why do simple devices confuse intelligent people? The main office at BOBfm is kept warm by one large electric heater but nobody knows how to use it. It has two simple controls, a thermostat numbered 1 to 6 and a power knob marked, “MIN”, “MED” and “MAX”. You control the room temperature with the thermostat […]

In the latest episode of my show for America: A supermarket disaster. How much do airlines REALLY care about our safety? The job interview from hell. Does that make me crazy? The cemetery for robots. Why it’s perfectly legal to buy explosives in the UK. Mistaken identity. Can sheep recognise faces? A long shot that […]


Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have a lot in common. They came straight after each other and people voted for the same thing. They wanted their country back. To be more accurate, they wanted to “feel” as if they had their country back. I can’t speak for America but in Britain, Brexiteers may […]
