Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The zombie apocalypse at Stansted Airport. The fake speed camera. The British media are royal sycophants. Stuff left behind. David Beckham is no actor. Donald or Duke? Stephen Fry being investigated for […]


stly  Airport security checks are a joke. Now there’s going to be a muslim laptop ban. When you fly to Britain from the mostly muslim countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia, you’ll not be allowed to bring a laptop or tablet computer onto the plane with you. You’ll have to put […]


Tech No Notice

08Mar17

“Has wearable tech had it’s day?” That was the heading of an article I read this week. It means that some tech gurus are finally waking up to the truth, NOBODY WANTS WEARABLE TECH! For the last ten years all we’ve heard from anyone that talks or writes about technology is that wearable tech will […]


London Calling

In the latest episode of my American radio show; Angry rants about traffic congestion and an idiot who can’t see the solution staring him in the face; The truth about house prices in Britain; The petition to ban Donald Trump; The real reason Britain’s socialized medicine isn’t working and Vietnam veteran Jim Lenton checks in […]


I’ve been asked to be a judge again at the New York Festivals Radio Program Awards. This year, they’re doing a feature interviews series with the judges called, “Open Mic: The Wonderful World of Radio” for their website. They sent some interesting questions which made me think hard about my answers. I don’t know how […]


London Calling

05Jan17

On the latest episode of my show for America, find out who you voted as, “Top Guest Of 2016”. Hear from Eddie The Eagle, John Cleese, Suzi Quatro, Richard E. Grant and Piff The Magic Dragon. As well as that, a health scare for the Queen makes front page news, Badger shares an amazing coincidence […]


If you enjoyed listening to my interview with Suzi Quatro, you can thank Winston Churchill. Have you ever had one of those days when there’s one big thing that you need to accomplish but everything that happens that day seems to be working against you? I had one of those days a few weeks ago. […]


My guest this week in my online radio show, London Calling is an icon of British broadcasting, Paul Gambaccini. In his home in central London, he talked about how his life changed when he was dropped by the BBC after his arrest on allegations of sexual assault. He was finally cleared a year later. He […]


Jobs Swap

01Jul14

You’d think a brand new computer bought direct from the manufacturer would be good for at least a couple of years. I got a new desktop computer delivered for my birthday, June 10th. Before June was over, it packed up and they had to replace it. This wasn’t a cheap computer, it was an Apple. […]


I’ve been in trouble many times for things I’ve done on the radio but once I nearly got one of my listeners the sack. In 1995 I was working on the air at 2GO on the New South Wales Central Coast. It was where I first learned how to run a digital play-out system. All […]


Shut-up Shop

23Dec13

Shopping on the high street is so twentieth century and let’s face it, a bit rubbish. I tried to buy a laptop computer on Saturday but the big department store I went to were out of stock of the model I wanted. It’s not an unusual make or model that I’m after, it’s the one […]


Internot

What exactly is involved in connecting broadband to a modern town center flat? Whatever it is, it’s a BIG job. So big, it takes a MONTH. That’s how long they say it will be for my service provider to hook me up. I’ve been with them for years, they’ve always been rubbish but this time […]
