Picture This


The older generation complain about young people constantly looking at screens on tablets or phones. They accuse them of not being fully present, especially if those screen-obsessed kids are surrounded by amazing things going on around them. Frustrated parents have gone on Twitter and shared pictures of their kids surrounded by natural beauty – but […]



Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey.  They say, her song “Get Free”, sounds like their song from 1993, “Creep”. Here’s Lana Delray… And here’s Radiohead… The thing is, ‘Creep’, was actually a rip-off of “The Air That I Breathe”, which was a hit for The Hollies in 1974… Here’s The Moon Loungers showing how close […]

I’ve had an experience that directly relates to one of the stories in the news this week. The list of Britain’s most overcrowded trains is out. Number two on the list is the 7.55am Cambridge to London King’s Cross. Capacity 202 passengers, actual number of passengers 426. I’ve been on that train. The normal rules […]

They shouldn’t have chosen a woman to play The Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’! Some fans of the show are furious now that Jodie Whittaker has been confirmed as the show’s first female Doctor. Here’s a few things that have appeared on Twitter; “#DoctorWho has been ripped out of his essence to make a bunch of […]

We were told that the radio station BOBfm, would be destroyed, go out of business or be taken off the air, two years ago this week. In the run-up to the referendum on Scottish Independence, we banned all Scottish music. Listen to how we did it here… This got us some great publicity. Newspapers on […]

My coffee machine is still leaking. We live in an area where our tap water is bad and scale has built up on a seal inside. We’ve run descaler through it twice but that hasn’t fixed it. It needs to be taken apart and cleaned out properly. To get it apart, you need a special […]

Hey Paula


Why is Paula Abdul following me on Twitter? She started following me this week. At first I couldn’t work out why but now I think I know. A few days ago, I played some audio on BOB fm of when she got vomited on. The only logical reason for Paula Abdul to be following me […]

Tweet F.A.!


If you ‘favourite’ a tweet on Twitter and don’t retweet it, you’re being selfish. If you like a tweet so much that it’s one of your favourites, why are you keeping it to yourself? Your followers are interested in what interests you, that’s why they follow you. So why aren’t you sharing your favourite tweets […]

The railways in Britain are rubbish. Half a million people have taken to Twitter in the last 12 months to shame the train companies responsible. This has led to people calling for the railways to be re-nationalised. That is not the answer. The problem is, they’re not private enough. Capitalism works because free-market competition forces […]

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 […]



This morning, the alarm on my iPhone woke me up. I got up and watched Sky News on the phone while I shaved. While eating breakfast I opened up my Chromebook, checked my email and posted a link to my blog on Twitter. I drove to work listening to the Adam Carolla Show Podcast. I […]

Mack’s Craic


I’m not a fan of social media, by that I mean Facebook. I prefer Twitter, which people keep calling social media but it isn’t. Twitter is a “micro blogging site” and I like blogging. I just can’t be bothered with Facebook, so I’ve linked my Twitter feeds to it. Now all of my tweets end […]
