Up and Away game (31 October 2009)

Yesterday I cried on air. The topic: the lack of after care for servicemen who arrive back in England having done tours of duty. Alcohol abuse amongst the youngest, depression and Trauma amongst the least educated, paranoia and anxiety amongst...

The Plimsoll Line (29 October 2009)

I had to pre-record Will Young this morning at 10.15. I hurumphed out of bed. Groggy, knackered, hungry and late. Only did the minimum prep and left the flat in time for the 8.45 170. IT WAS LATE. When the...

A Bad Thriller.... (28 October 2009)

Cynical exercise or history in the making. It doesn't matter how it hangs thousands of people tuned in, turned up and turned on to Michael Jackson's 'THIS IS IT' the film of his last ever performance. 19 countries transmitted at...

Unusual traveling experiences. (26 October 2009)

It was one of them days. A car ride there, a tube ride here, a three hour show, a walk to Waterloo, a train ride back, a car trip to Battersea Arts Centre, a bus ride back to Leicester Square....

Sees fruit and leaves.... (25 October 2009)

23.40. Dark outside although there is a quarter moon. The new road lay out by St. Thomas's hospital is just a little confusing I nearly drove into the Plaza Hotel. Drove Bee back to Hackney. Right across London. Over Southwark...

Question Crime (22 October 2009)

The father of my daughter and I went to see 'End Game.' It was intense, cerebral, dark and worth a visit if you really know the play. Simon McBurney, he of 'Complicite' played one character, Mark Rylance, he of 'The...

All Change. (21 October 2009)

Foster carers, Menopause, and the lap-top generation, not to mention Travis Payne, Michael Jackson's choreographer. That was on the menu today at LBC. I pre-recorded Travis, a little nervous as I'm not a Michael jackson nut, although I do appreciate...

Disgusted from TWells. (20 October 2009)

So there's this reverend in Tunbridge Wells who says that playing Tina Turner at funerals is un-Christian and that the removal of sacred music is the beginning of the end. 'Death to Death' he said, he said he feels like...

Postal traumatic stress. (19 October 2009)

Am I the only person in England who cares about the Postal workers, it felt like it today. After many of your calls this afternoon I can see why members of the CWU feel abandoned and lonely in their struggle...

Sunday in Sussex (18 October 2009)

I woke up this morning, looked at the golden leaves on the oak outside the bedroom window, and decided we should go to Sheffield Park and look at the turning leaves. So we climbed out of bed and after porridge...

Hunker Munker (17 October 2009)

The cold sun is shining on the cottage wall, even the clematis looks chilly. I have just come back from my Mr. Bibby who has finally taken my body in hand. Apparently the chiropractor re-activated an old sprain, that's been...

Little Voice (16 October 2009)

Thank you to all of you for your suggestions of drugs and care...I am off to my cranial osteopath on Saturday so hopefully my fat ankle will deflate. And yes I have read my audio blog myself glitches and all....

The walking wounded (15 October 2009)

There has been chicken casserole and champagne going on. There has been Alison Moyet, Jackie Collins and The Cove all wonderful people. There has been so much pain from the wretched chiropractor that the cooking of the above and the...

ken and jacky.... (13 October 2009)

With a salami sausage in one hand and four little oatcakes in the other it's a little tricky writing this blog, but here goes anyway. I have just come in from The National Theatre. A memorial evening for Ken Campbell....

Mr & Mrs Humid-Efiar and their daughter Dee (11 October 2009)

22.21 Sunday Night. I am ashamed to say that the weekend is now 'Strictly Come Howsyourfather' then more rubbish with 'X Factor'. The weather was so lovely this weekend,but still the old git and meself had to go shopping in...

Baxter's Night ( 8 October 2009)

Where do I begin? Tomorrow I am going to a book launch in a cemetery! This evening I watched THE COVE about the slaughtering of dolphins, every September, in Taiji in Japan. Today we talked about Rape, Pets as Therapy...

Soup for supper ( 6 October 2009)

Why did i write bout Jane Bergermeister? Because I think any information that comes to me that may illuminate our troubled times is worth a punt. Today I did travel, travel and more travel. Barcelona and me. Tonight I am...

Conkers ( 1 October 2009)

Boil for an hour in vinegar. Put them on the window sill to dry. Take them round to the butchers, Catz in Brick Lane, or anyone who has a proper vice and drill. String em up and remember what it...
