Backstage at Newcastle United

Backstage at Newcastle United

I loved my time at Newcastle United, but very nearly lost my job before I started! I was headhunted by Kevin Keegan and Sir John Hall. The club needed a shake up, and they asked me to change the hosting and entertainment. So one afternoon, Sir John told me to get down...

Temptation

Temptation

There is a famous quote, that a lot of people purloin "I can resist anything but temptation", and it certainly is true when it comes to me. Due to my lifetime of sitting behind a microphone I am prone to podge, after years of being reasonably skinny. Yet temptation is...

The Women In The Sunbed Shop

The Women In The Sunbed Shop

Being a traditionally pasty looking ginger man the only way I get colour is if I go for a spray tan. I have only ever done it once and looked better but the experience was a nightmare. Firstly the place is full of people going in and out resembling the United Nations,...

Families – Friends or Foes?

Families – Friends or Foes?

Like an old Rainbow song, I was 'The Black Sheep Of The Family' and I guess some of you feel that way too. When I was very small I heard an argument over something that I had done between my Mam and Dad, and half way through out came the phrase "We didn't want him...

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...

The Magic of Disney

You don't have to say it, I know I'm a grown man, but I love EVERYTHING about Disney. Yet as a child I had no interest whatsoever, I was far more into DC and Marvel comics, Micky Mouse was just for kids. Then one day many years ago a fellow radio presenter called...

When Dogs Attack

When Dogs Attack

One of my most vivid memories of my Dad was him coming home one night, and he held his hand over his face. Ignoring me he said to my Mam "Audrey I don't want you getting upset, it looks bad but I'm OK. Are you listening?" She nodded and he moved his hand, his entire...

My Footballing Memories

My Footballing Memories

Isn't it weird how anyone who has ever played football always thinks they 'nearly' made it? I 'nearly did' too. From my earliest age I remember playing back lane football, until it got too dark to see the ball. It was my passion until I discovered girlfriends. At one...
