Episode 63

The Coleslaw Episode

Show broadcast on 25 April 2015

Two things to tell you this week team. Number 1 - get ready, brace yourself. Producer Dave is back! It's The Dream Team. Robins, James, and post-honeymoon Dave. Number 2 - sure there's all the regular features (a tense low-scoring Winner Plays On, more A Robins Amongst The Pigeons, Textual Healing, a bumper double edition of Email of the Species), but mainly this week it's all about coleslaw. You'll see.

Podcast intro

In reference to last week's episode, some listeners have written in to defend triple denim (or 'threnim') as worn by Producer Vin, and even quadruple denim ('quenim').

John's introduction of Elis

"To my left is is the first man in 450 years to be banned from the Isle of Anglesey. "

Conversations and riffs

Producer Dave is back from his honeymoon in Thailand so time to catch up on his wedding day, which Elis and John attended. Dave's dad was great value and he and John came up with an idea for a 'pub shed'. His mum told John about a young Dave's Baywatch fascination. There was a lot of coleslaw.

Elis and John's newly increased profile has led to some random gifts or free samples being sent to them at the Xfm office, including some artificial grass sent with no explanation.
