Blame Storming

Why are your kids so fat? Before I reveal the answer, let me just put your mind at rest, it’s not YOUR fault because this is Britain. Britain is the greatest country on earth because when you live here, NOTHING is your fault. If you can’t find a job, it’s because of immigration, if you […]


I think I’ve come up with a great business idea. If you’re an entrepreneur, you should steal this. We’re moving to a smaller flat soon, so we’re trying to get rid of as much stuff as we can. Everything has to pass the, “Do we REALLY need this?” test. So far we’ve sold my Dr […]

Filthy fossil fuel burning cars are here to stay, unfortunately. Electric vehicles should be the future of transport. Vehicles that burn fossil fuels are putting toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. Electric vehicles will not catch on in Britain unless there’s a big change. Unfortunately there is no sign of that change any time soon. The […]


Britain’s budget shop, ‘Poundland’ has been hit with a backlash because it sells Peanut M&M knock-offs called ‘Nutters’. The packets have three peanut-shaped cross-eyed cartoon characters on them with their mouths wide open.

Messing with the competition is always fun when you work in commercial radio, especially if you can distort reality. In 2005, I was the Program Director at 2CRFM on England’s South Coast. Our main competitor was a station called Wave 105. One day we got word that Wave were planning a big poster campaign with […]


Sometimes you just know when it’s time to move on. In January 2002, I started presenting the Breakfast Show at Century FM, the regional station for the East Midlands of England. The format suited me down to the ground, it was “Music Fun and Football”. Then about a year later we were told at a […]


I got a big reaction a couple of days ago to a blog I posted called, “Radio needs a Steve Jobs”. I pointed out that commercial radio is being run by sales and marketing people and their focus is not on delivering great content. In an interview recorded in 1995, Steve Jobs said that sales […]


Today is the day that the latest radio ratings are published. It’s a day when we see plenty of examples of the Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy. The Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy is an informal fallacy which is committed when differences in data are ignored, but similarities are stressed. From this reasoning a false conclusion is inferred. It […]
