John Pride, Made Up Games & 8 Hour Nap Guys

Show broadcast on 8 July 2017

***BRAND NEW FEATURE ALERT*** We've cracked a brand new bottle of badinage on the good ship Radio X with the flood of Made Up Games that you legends keep sending in! An absolute hammer-show today with all the usual refinements: Stinking Humblebrags, buckets of shame, an ever so light-hearted paper review and some sweet, sweet emails.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, a man so proud of his roots that he adds a minimum of one teaspoon of soil from the foot hills of Pengellen to protein shakes, which he consumes while saluting a poster of trade unionist Arthur Horner. "

Conversations and riffs

Today, John got "in-vibe-orated" at the Pride march today and felt a great sense of positivity. Elis and John celebrate social change in our lifetime - but do remember to stand on the right and walk on the left when on the escalator.

Elis recounts meeting a rock star but feeling uncool because he had his braces in and was teaching his girlfriend reverse parking.

John tweets Brighton & Hove Council live on air to make a clever remark about their car park ticket machines not accepting standard coins. But no-one in the studio wants to retweet it.
