When I first started on the show, November 2009 I believe, there were 3 of us presenting. Actually I just sat in a corner reading bits out from the paper such as a story about strange things found in sewers, the strangest being a horse, a definite two flusher, and moaning about the music, JLS, Cheryl Cole etc. Dreadful. We then became 4, then briefly 5, back to 4, then 3, then 2 and then just me. That was when the music changed and the show took on the 'no other bugger plays this at breakfast' format. I've said many a time all I do is play music I love and hope I'm not the only one. But I do miss having someone to feed off. The times Mark Kelly has joined me are always fun and today's show showed me just how much I do miss a co-host. But, as it is, I'm in sole charge of the play list and that suits me perfectly. If I thought for one minute Stars could get to Sine FM Towers for 7am in the morning she'd get the gig but as awesome as she is she travels in a wake of unreliability. Love her to bits though.
Last night's pub snippet:
It's very nice. Is it carrot cake?
One regular's response to trying some of Lady Punka's chocolate concrete. It's gorgeous stuff and immensely dunkable. Carrot cake!! Prat!!!
Well I've gotta go. Need to do some office shenanigans, get some real ale flowing, nap, see the lovely Tracey, work and rock out to The AVIT Blues band later. In that order I think too. Oh and shop as well. The two missed items from yesterday's shopping trip, the two I really needed, remain unbought.
Before that though I have to remove a dead gazelle from the pub car park. Probably brought down by a herd of majestic wildebeest sweeping in from Printing Office Street.
It's a dead gazebo. Probably brought down by wind and rain sweeping in from the East. Nowhere near as exotic.
Don't use guns, use eggs.
