Christmas Knives, Legally Black and White & Thin Women In London
Show broadcast on 15 December 2018
If Elis says he was working, then he was working ok? Also, if John wants to challenge a listener on whether or not they're breaking the law, that's fine too. It was a banger of a show this week, full of festive silliness and anticipation for the big 250! There was a dash of shame, a measure of Humblebrags and a tidy portion of the Paper Review too!
More OAP PCDs and their best early gigs. Aerosmith have been around a lot longer than John thought.
Following on from last week's conversations, listeners' sporting what-ifs and an original '90s pube found on vinyl.
John's introduction of Elis
"To my left, Wales' 297th richest person. The annual list, drawn up by Forbes, saw Dai Jones, the scrap metal merchant, retain top spot after a loft conversion increased the estimated value of his assets to an astonishing £64,000. "
Conversations and riffs
At the opening of the show, Elis and John are a little distracted by just how good the preceding Cold Play song about Christmas lights was.
Last Saturday, Elis went to see Swansea play in London then took his four-year-old daughter to a busy Chinese restaurant at 9pm, which might have been too late.
Did John win the Perrier Award in 2017 or not?
Imagine Marilyn Manson trying to change his mobile phone contract.
Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review
Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.
Clarkson's Hyperbole: Why can't people make decent bacon sandwiches without lettuce (rabbit food) and avocado (classed as a food stuff by thin women in London)? Clarkson's Hyperbole: Real men have a train set. Stuart Pearce is going on holiday to North Korea.
Listeners suggest made-up games that Elis and John can play.
Where On Earth Do You Fly From? Players have to guess where named airlines are based.
Email of the Species
Listeners' emails into the show.
Further to recent weeks' conversations, Elis and John provide more advice to listeners on brushing your teeth and wiping your bum.
