Things to Say, Songs to Play for Thu 16th September 2021

Got to start making a list of things to say between songs on my radio show (www.5townsradio.co.uk). I’ll add to this as the week goes on. I need about twenty-five.

  1. Old people. Got to apologise for my ageist remarks about Ronald Reagan and Joe Biden in my last show. Tell story about meeting Evelyn. Also apologise to Kristen Stewart for calling her plain.
  2. There’s going to be another Topical Quiz, but it’s got to be easier than the last one.
  3. And, of course, I’ll read another story from my blog. The last one (Even Insane People Need Love) went down pretty well.
  4. Microwaves. There must be something interesting a person can say about microwaves, right?
  5. Sklugoo Speaks needs to get a plug at some point. It’s my podcast.
  6. Blogging. My experience of how to make a blog moderately successful and my thought on how to make it fly.
  7. A conversation with a cow whilst sat on a gate at the top of a field.
  8. Silent roads and how one made a car disappear on me.
  9. The Mercury Prize 2021 – nominees and winner. Yeah, I’ll have to look this up. Did Arlo Parks win? Dunno.
  10. Travelling in someone else’s mind. A friend once said to me that I can’t travel in their mind, only they can. That’s okay because my own mind contains so much already. Wall at the end of the universe.
  11. Little Simz (Simbiatu Abisola Abiola Ajikawo) is a rapper.
  12. The deer at the top of our garden. Where did it go? Where do deer sleep at night?
  13. Safety at work. Three day course. Risk assessment on making a cup of tea.

Like I say, I’ll keep adding to the list. Got any ideas for me?

  1. Unsuccessful experiences in the kitchen; wide-ranging implications of stopping to look at a road construction site (in our country, this is usually done by the elderly and they are unbearable because they grumble, give advice and say how the work should be done) (does stopping to look at a road construction site mean you have become old or have free time or enjoy watching people work? ); the child screams in an imperial tantrum, where, how, reactions; words of politeness accompanied by a non-courteous attitude (bewilderment, confusion, strange reactions); deciding to change the order of the furniture in the house, implications. OK, maybe you can find a good cue 🙂
