Viewing Figures

Music has lost it’s value, TV shows and movies are next. A while ago, I mentioned how TV box sets have become the new LPs. Fans of particular shows wait for the latest release and rumours start about the next one being the last. It’s exactly how we used to talk about albums from our […]


Once I was given a dead fish. It was in 2009 when I was the Breakfast Show host at TFM Radio in the North East. I’d been the guest of honour at the birthday celebrations at a local lifeboat station. I don’t know why I was booked and I had no idea I was the […]

I went back to the future the other day. I went to visit my old mate Richard Thomas in Great Sankey near Warrington. It’s where I grew up and Richard still lives nearby. Although Richard and I have met up a few times since, this was the first time since 1985 that I’d been back […]


I accidentally called the Hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst. It was in 2002, when I was presenting the Breakfast Show on 106 Century FM. One of the things I used to do was call public payphones around the world and chat to whoever answered. One morning I called the payphone next to the toilets in Swingers […]


Substandard

19Oct14

Foreign films are being ruined by whoever is in charge of the subtitles. I like subtitled films because they combine two of the things I like doing most, reading and watching movies. The problem is when two characters are on screen together. The subtitles on screen cover both sides of their conversation. That spoils it […]


The Cannes Film Festival has started this week on the French Riviera. And simultaneously, a film festival with the same name (but different spelling) is taking place in The Home Counties. If you listen to BOB fm, you’ll be able to see films in selected cinemas for free as long as you bring a CAN […]

When someone leaves an on-air radio job, I’ve never understood why they’re not taken off the air straight away. In 1995, I was the Breakfast Show host at 5SE in South Australia. The new Program Director hated everything I did and was making life really difficult for me. I’d been really miserable there for a […]


I upset a publicist today. It was all because of perspective. I noticed I had an email with the subject line “Interview with George Clooney”. Hey, I’d LOVE to interview George Clooney so I clicked on it and was disappointed to find out that I was being offered a pre-recorded interview with George Clooney to […]
