Episode 19

Paul Daniels, The Boat That Rocked, Mick Hucknall MP and the Price of Gold.

Show broadcast on 22 June 2014

More top drawer fun this week from Elis and John as they investigate the lies we've told each other, including some corkers about Gremlins, Mick Hucknall and the World Cup. In a change from the norm, Elis mocks John's clothing as the self-confessed hater of heat had the audacity to arrive in the studio in shorts. All this plus the regulars - Winner Plays On pits Elis' Triple Crown winning Welsh Rugby Team against John's encyclopaedic Sherlock Holmes knowledge, Sacred Cow puts The Rolling Stones up for debate, and Paul Daniels was on the phone for Textual Healing. Yup.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the first man to successfully complete a cappuccino in Llandudno. It happened in 1997. "

Conversations and riffs

Nothing sums up the dynamic of the show better than the fact that Producer Dave was larding it at a Kasabian gig during the week while Elis and John went on individual wistful nostalgia journeys and John got so sad he almost couldn't do his comedy gig.

Someone is sabotaging Elis and John's Wikipedia pages.

Text-in topic

Listeners text and tweet during the show on this week's topic.

What fun facts have you made up to try to trick a friend or loved one?

As a child, John told his friends he had a secret signal system with the ice cream man. Dave told his girlfriend that Cilla Black lived in London's Somerset House. Elis told childhood friends that he wrote the theme tune to The Poddington Peas.

Textual Healing

A listener calls the show with a problem.

Paul's second name is Daniels and he's tired of the jokes about his name.

Sacred Cow

Should this celebrated band / artist go into the paddock of sacred cows or be doomed to the abattoir?

The Rolling Stones (Elis) - paddock. Includes a great Mick Jagger impersonation by John.

Winner Plays On

Elis and John face off in the weekly quiz on topics of their choice.

The Welsh 1988 Triple-Crown winning rugby team (Elis) v The Life & Times of Sherlock Holmes (John). John wins 3-2.
