Episodes

Episode 170 – Can i Gymru, Crinkly Plate & Big and large

Episode 169 – Scoop Angels, The M4 & All the Mammals  

There aren’t many podcasts that ask you the question; “Are you absolutely haunted by your past?” – “YES PLEASE!” This week we’ve got plenty of shame – some of it is Phillip Larkin, some of it is in very poor French and there are even some dark memories about a science teacher. Great. There are humble brags, a comprehensive (but light-hearted) paper review, a typical Beta-Bet and not to mention a STACK of emails. All this plus an impromptu edition of John Googling the travel; it turns out that it’s really just a hobby of his. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.

Episode 162 – Broken Elis, Double Sexy Voices & A Stupid Taste  

“Radio is the new Rock n’ Roll”. Ain’t that the truth, with Elis and his football friends in Dublin the night before, John captained the show for the first hour and awaited the arrival of his colleague who was feeling the full force of last night’s shunting. Normal service was quickly resumed though and attention was turned to the elephant in the room…. Just the small matter of a very shiny award and the title of “Best Radio” at the Chortle Awards!!
