Show broadcast on 28 October 2017

Robins had a bit of a night of it last night. Classic Robins. That didn't stop a complete Hammer show from taking shape though. Elis gave yet more tasty insight into the British film industry and the Queen questions came thick and fast in preparation for John's appearance on Celebrity Mastermind. There were some quallo emails this week too, as well as the usual Humblebrags, Shame Well and a Mod or Rocker Made Up Game!

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left, the man whose performance as Ratty in the Year 3 performance of Wind in the Willows led the theatre critic of the Carmarthen Gazette to comment 'In Elis James we have found the Welsh Henry Irving.'"

Conversations and riffs

Vin and Elis quiz John on Queen in preparation for his appearance on Celebrity Mastermind.

Text-in topic

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

Last night John ate 10 packs of Space Raiders and drank eight cans of Neck Oil. The tenth pack was eaten on the toilet. The next morning he tried to get some writing done but all he could manage was "Grief is living".
