Episode 54

Songs that rhyme with Radiohead, Email, and John's Dark Crystal Look

Show broadcast on 21 February 2015

This week saw the start of John's diet, in order to rid himself of a "repulsive belly", so the boys wanted to hear about your odd body parts too. They also went all Tomorrow's World with a look at futuristic life-changer "e-mail" (it means Electronic Mail). All this plus an absolute belter of an A Robins Amongst The Pigeons, Winner Plays On and Textual Healing.

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is the third most laid-back man in Tonypandy. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis organised a charity comedy gig in Swansea during the week at which John told an embarrassing story about Elis on stage with his mum in the audience.

They were at another gig with Russell Howard at which Elis kept asking Russell to take his shirt off back stage. When comparing upper bodies, this promoted John to start a diet to try to get rid of his beer belly.

The show is the first non-BBC radio show to be nominated for a Chortle award.
