Radio newsreaders are rubbish when it comes to reporting about Space. Yesterday I heard a news presenter on a commercial station say, “It’s back to the drawing board for Nasa”. Immediately I thought that something catastrophic had happened to the rocket that was due to carry the Parker Solar Probe into space. It turned out […]

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 […]


Tomfoolery

They don’t call it Mission Impossible for nothing! Tom Cruise has hurt himself filming Mission Impossible 6. Tom broke his ankle in two places while filming a jump between high-rise buildings in London. Of course if Tom Cruise wants to take on a REALLY impossible mission, he should try explaining the plots of the last five […]

On the Breakfast Show on BOBfm this week, we were talking about the story of a 4 year old who got a child’s toilet seat stuck on his head. I asked for listeners to call in with ‘getting stuck’ stories… Dean James called in and said at that very moment his daughter Nadine Evans-James was […]

“If it’s got boobs or wheels, it’s going to give you problems…” …Or so the old saying goes. – I’d like to add one more item. Looking through my bank statements, I’ve noticed that yes, my car has had a lot of work done lately and Julie’s birthday is coming up but judging by the amount […]


Double Take!

You’re going to think I’ve made this up but I swear it’s true. Sam and Michelle left BOB fm a couple of weeks ago, they worked as sales executives. They’ve been replaced by two new people in the sales team. The new salespeople’s names are, “Sam” and “Michelle”. That’s right, Sam and Michelle have been […]


I don’t like scientists who think they’re better than us. The official name of a new British multi-million pound polar research vessel is unlikely to be “Boaty McBoatface”, despite winning a public poll. The public overwhelmingly voted for it to be the name in a poll that closed at the weekend. It got more than […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOB fm lately including: What men DON’T want for Christmas. Should we be bombing in Syria? David Beckhams old car. A hapless taxi driver. A diary mix up. Is the Apple Watch the most useless gadget ever? Plastic surgery that fixed one thing and ruined another. The USA’s […]


I’ve talked to a cannibal. In 2007, I was the host of the Breakfast Show on TFM Radio in the North East. I asked people to call in with the most unusual thing they’d ever eaten. You can listen to here; The next day the story made headlines around the world. Here’s how some of […]
