This week's show (without John Graddon's thought for the week).........

This week on the show we heard all about Peter’s encounter with Mike Tyson on a flight from Las Vegas. John counted his ears just to check he’d come back unscathed. We also discussed the infamous Balloon Boy story and Peter to his cost got his balloon boy stories confused and became convinced the Queen was involved in the cover up.


We sent best wishes to Leona Lewis who had been thumped at a book signing and considered what her comeback single could be once she’d recovered. The top 5 choices were:

1. Thumps (My Lovely Lady Thumps) - Black Eyes Please
2. Book Signed, Slapped, Delivered - Stevie Wonder
3.Thumpin' Smack Flash - The Rolling Waterstones
4. Beat The Living Daylights - Ahhh-ha
5. Your Eye Is Gonna Shine Ever More - The Stalker Brothers

John interviewed Mock The Week regular Stewart Francis about his forthcoming tour which sees him visiting the Colchester Arts Centre and also found out what it’s like supporting Ricky Gervais on his UK tour. The psychic terrors of Epping Forest were discovered and we listened to some of Chas and Dave’s finest to celebrate regular listener Dannielle and her son’s love of the Cockney twosome. We think it was called Gertcha but really couldn’t understand much of it....

We’re off next week so won’t be able to help your hangover this week but James Moloney will be looking after you this Sunday 12-2pm and we’ll be back on November 1st.
