If you don’t want to end up paying hundreds of pounds in fines, you’d better mind your Ps and Qs! Last month, I had to rent a van for Fix Radio. There were two days where I drove through London’s congestion zone. I made sure that our Accounts Director paid the £11.50 congestion charge for […]


“Just because it’s vegan doesn’t mean it’s healthy”.  – That’s just one of many misconceptions that are used as excuses for not going vegan.  At Fix Radio, another one of the blokes I work with went vegan this week. That means four out of the nine men in our office now only eat plant based […]

I thought I was going to be killed by an armed policeman this week. As you can see by the video above, Fix Radio recorded a promotional film with “Boris Johnson” at Downing Street. We didn’t have permission and as I was in charge, an officer with a very large automatic weapon asked me what […]

The greatest legacy of the first moon landing is the inspiration it gives to us all. 50 years ago this month, Apollo 11 touched down in the Sea of Tranquillity. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the surface.  I was five years old when I watched the grainy black and […]

I’m looking forward to Thursday (18th April). The wonderful John Pearman, the editor of the Liverpool Fanzine ‘Red All Over The Land’, has invited me to host a great night at Longcliffe Golf Club in Loughborough.

That’s what it sounded like when I announcement that I’d banned all Michael Jackson songs from Fix Radio in London and Manchester. I made the decision after watching, “Leaving Neverland”.

Hot For Cleaner

17Feb19

Things didn’t go according to plan when one of my single workmates booked a hot cleaner. He saw the image of a very attractive young girl advertising home cleaning services online. She was a lot more expensive than the other cleaners he’d got quotes from but he decided to book her to clean his flat […]
