The Punday Hangover

What a second show. New features, regular features and features we’ll never touch again even if you paid us – it had it all. Thanks to all our listeners who emailed comments and song requests, especially the lady who asked for Hannah Montana’s ‘Hoedown Throwdown’. Apologies to everyone else for the fact that we actually found it and played it. (If you’ve got a more embarrassing request, let us know here or mail between 12-2 next Sunday.)

And now, for anyone who missed them, the news from Sunday Hangover towers:

With the revelation that bits of Kerry Katona’s nose have fallen off due to excessive coke abuse, we asked: has she blown it?

As Boris Johnson tries to get British Telecom to deal with the problem of phone box prostitute cards, a BT spokesman told us: ‘We sent an engineer round to the address on the card on Monday. And Tuesday. About half a dozen went on Wednesday. Apparently they’re waiting for more parts.’

And as John spots Ray Parlour in a local pub, Jeff asks: ‘Are you sure it wasn’t Charlie Dimmock?’

Elsewhere on the show, Pundemonium reigned briefly as John and Jeff (and yes, it was his Hannah Montana song – although he says it belongs to his nieces) went head to head with two of the worst jokes ever heard on radio since the Cannon and Ball Christmas 82 special. The challenge was: could they guess each other’s punchline before the record ended? Gripping stuff you have to agree. Tune in next week for round two.

The Web Forum was even more active than usual – we’re hearing 55,000. Online viewers this week included a baby, a man in Australia wearing a full ginger beard, a bed-bound topless youth and – judging by the terrifying balaclava – a member of the Provisional IRA. A warm, er, welcome to you all.

But the highlight for many was the launch of our new feature, ‘Who’s Murdering A Queen Song This Week?’ After the, frankly, incredible response to Diana Ross’s swing rendition of ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ – IRA man even took his balaclava off to headbang! – John was moved to rename the item: ‘Who’s Taking A Queen Song To A Different – Not Necessarily Better – Level This Week?’ Who will it be next Sunday? Only one way to find out.

Coming later this week: we play Top of the Popes as His Holiness calls the studio to reveal his favourite songs (it was a German accent – definitely him). And – if we get enough requests – those puns in full.

Be careful out there.
