Ever wonder why the world is out of whack right now? Donald Trump is the President, North and South Korea are competing TOGETHER in the Winter Olympics and there’s a sports car in space! It’s all because we’re living in a parallel universe. The proof is a thing called “The Mandela Effect”. That’s the name […]


Mourning Show

03Sep17

I spoke to a lot of people last week that said they are are fed up of hearing about the death, twenty years ago, of someone they never knew, never met and didn’t have any effect on their life at all. There were special programs on TV and radio every day last week dedicated to […]

In Episode 24 of my radio show for America, special guest Victoria Jones. She’s the chief White House correspondent with Washington DC-based Talk Media News talks about growing up in the UK, her love of Liverpool Football Club and making the move to America. Also on the show; Will Britain’s most secretive organisation be forced […]


King Donald

President-elect Donald J. Trump is so far out of his depth it’s not funny. He has no experience in politics and no idea what the job of president involves. So most of the presidential work will end up being done by the vice-president, Mike Pence. Pence has a lot of experience, he  was elected to the […]

This is what I’ve been up to on BOBfm recently, including: Paula Abdul gets puked on; Your feelings over Brexit and the English football team; The longest day; Why you should never ride a bike naked; The Avocado crime wave; Kids don’t get the freedom we got to create great memories; Food served but not […]


The Queen’s birthday is confusing. This week, she turned 90 but although she was born on 21st April, her “official” birthday is in June. It’s a tradition that was started by George II in 1748 and it owes its origins to the ageless problem of the British weather. George was born in November and felt […]


If you were invited to someone’s birthday party, how would you feel if they asked you to pay £150 to be there? That’s what the Queen is doing for her 90th. I agree with Rosie Millard from The Independent, who’s written an excellent article about this PR disaster. The Queen is “inviting” along all of […]

Here are some of my favourite bits from BOB fm this year including; Why Volkswagen have done nothing wrong, the sinister truth about the sugar tax, how Jeremy Corbyn almost messed up Britain sucking up to the Chinese, Prince William was the wrong person to talk to the Chinese but their president is staying in the […]


Do you believe it is wrong to punish someone for something they didn’t do? If the answer is “yes” then you must also believe it is wrong to reward someone for something they didn’t do. I heard that or words to that effect from Penn Jillette, one half of ‘Penn & Teller’, the American magicians […]


On the flight back from Chicago, I edited together some of my favourite bits from BOB fm this year. I hope some of your favourites are on here too. There’s the naked contestant, the electronic mutiny, when life imitates Monty Python in the prison service, our Nazi Queen, the smell of fake leather, random acts […]


History is being made here in Hertfordshire. This county has a rich history. There’s evidence of humans living here from the Stone Age. The first tribes settled in the Iron Age. In AD 54, the Romans besieged the town of Wheathampstead. In 293 the first British martyrdom took place at what we now call St. Albans. In the […]


Ultravox & Simple Minds are doing a UK tour together. That kind of makes sense, if you like one, you probably like the other. I wonder if the tour will be called “Ultra-Simple”? Probably not, musicians have been teaming up for years but combining their names doesn’t seem to happen. Queen and David Bowie didn’t […]


Father Figure

I don’t think my dad ever understood why I didn’t want to be like him. He was a hard hat construction worker most of his life. He worked as a piping supervisor on petro-chemical plants all over the world, a real man’s man. He used to describe anyone who stood on a stage, in front […]


I have to be very careful what I say in this Craic because I don’t want it to look like I want the British monarchy to go. That’s because in 1841, parliament passed an act that makes the advocacy of republicanism illegal. So let me just say this; if we want to keep the monarchy […]
