I Nearly Died!

I Nearly Died!

I must say, it would be fair to think that most of you may well think that sitting behind a microphone is as safe a job as you could possibly have. Yet for some bizarre reason I seem to have found myself in perilous and downright life threatening situations on far too...

The Trots

My Dad was a tough West End bloke, ex Forces, spent his life on building sites as a bricklayer, or digging holes for the Northern Gas Board. Hands the size of shovels that I felt on my backside more than once. So when I was a kid you did what he said, with my Mam you...

Necrophilia – Isn’t It Dead Boring?

Necrophilia – Isn’t It Dead Boring?

Just the other week a shocking story that really would fit in with all of my 'Grisly' tales, a man who worked in a morgue having sex with his customers. Apparently he admitted to having sex with 44 corpses, but they reckon it was probably in the hundreds. This is a...

The Album Every Beatles or Music Fan Should Own

The Album Every Beatles or Music Fan Should Own

When I was merely an ankle biter I discovered a bit of furniture that totally fascinated me, a thing called a Radiogram. It had a crocheted cover over the top and was topped with a dubious cheap ornament of a dog chewing a pipe. Then one day the cover came off, my Dad...
