Maris Piper bombs, Everything Everything bassist's mum, and Don't Get Me Started
Show broadcast on 1 December 2018
A slightly different vibe to the podcast this week as heroic, brave, valiant John 'Courage' Robins battled through a mild cold to broadcast to the nation - aided and abetted by his friend/surrogate son Eis. The boys asked for your tales of overcoming relationship obstacles, Ticked Off a variety of Tastes, learnt about chips, and outlined the pros and cons of a 17 degree temperature.
A bizarre email has been sent into the show, apparently to pass on a message to Johnny Vaughan, criticising the lack of "British Christian values" and encouraging radio presenters that "If you like Muslim so much, you should move there".
Follow up to last week's conversation about the comparative risks of air and road travel.
More chat about haircut prices.
As requested, older PCDs have contacted the show with their age and an early gig they saw back in the day.
Elis to John: "I think you have too many fictional auctions in your mind."
John's introduction of Elis
"(Elis does the show open as John has a cold so is resting his voice and being incredibly brave and stoic.)"
Conversations and riffs
John has contracted a virus while on the 'Holy Vible' tour that means he snores at night but has a sexy broadcasting voice. Speaking of noise, did you know that Dan Ackroyd has a private luxury train carriage he travels around in because he doesn't like flying or disruption from other passengers?
Producer Vin had an opportunity to meet one of his favourite bands Everything Everything but got nervous. However, he thinks he sat next to one of their mums once.
Elis riffs about December while John looks for an email.
