Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately: The lady who got her hand stuck down the toilet. Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The British media are royal sycophants? Stuff left behind. David Beckham is no actor. Donald or Duke? Cyclist should be banned from the […]


Tosh & Becks

12May17

As far as acting goes, David Beckham is a great footballer. He makes a cameo appearance in Guy Ritchie’s new film, “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”. In the film, he plays a disgruntled Cockney knight called ‘Trigger’ (I’m not making this up). He offers a few words of advice to Arthur. I don’t think Posh […]


I have a big problem and I don’t know what to do about it. An interview went bad the other week, very bad. I’ve been interviewing some amazing people on my new online show, ‘London Calling’. It’s a show about Britain and is aimed at America. Last month, I got the chance to talk to […]


London Calling

21Oct16

I had a nice chat with the British actor, Richard E. Grant the other day.  He’s appeared in over 80 films and television programs including Downton Abbey, Dr Who, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Jack & Sarah, L.A. Story, Dracula, The Hound Of The Baskervilles, Gosford Park, and The Iron Lady. He talked about growing up in Swaziland, accidentally seeing […]


Viewing Figures

11May16

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 […]


Never judge a book by it’s movie. I’m reading all fourteen James Bond books written by Ian Fleming in the order they were published. Right now I’m up to the eleventh one, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. I mentioned this at work today and one of my workmates shouted out, “That’s the one where George […]


Clocking Off

17Mar15

Can you imagine how boring football would be if you knew exactly when the goals would be scored? How about if every movie you saw followed the same pattern with the car chases, romantic bits and intense dialog all neatly spaced out? What if every concert opened with the artist playing a hot 80’s hit […]


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 […]


Canny!

At BOB fm, we’ve added ANOTHER cinema to our Can Film Festival. It’s a special film for kids! Bring a can of food for the local Food Bank and see the film for free! The Broadway Cinema in Letchworth are showing the animated feature, “Mr Peabody and Sherman” certificate (U) at 9.45am on Saturday 17th […]


Smoke Screen

19Jan14

Modern smokers are such amateurs. Years ago people who smoked looked like they knew what they were doing. The cigarette and the smoke became a part of who they were. They held it confidently like it wasn’t actually on fire, never consciously thinking about it or looking at it. They could hold a conversation and […]


When I made the decision to become a radio presenter, some of the people around me had a harder time accepting it than I did. In November 1992, I found out that I’d made it on to the top broadcasting course in Australia. The commercial radio course at the Australian Film Television and Radio School […]
