Welcome along to the new Adam and Joe blog. I'll be posting from time to time, highlighting some of your fantastic contributions to the show and the blog. Who are you, I hear you say? Well I push the buttons on Saturday mornings, I make the podcast on Saturday afternoon and on Sundays I rest. Until I have to come back into the office.


You can post your comments here or email the show at any time. You can also leave a phone message for us by dialling 03700 100 600 and choosing option 1 (standard geographic charges apply and calls may be included in your telecom provider's call package. Calls from mobiles may be higher). We'd love to hear your Text the Nation stories or anything else you'd like to get off your chest.

    hello mr james producer, adam, joe and fellow bloggers.

    i have a question that has been bugging me for the past month or so and would be sincerely grateful if someone would be able to shed any light upon the subject.

    i have been a proud member of the black squadron since its birth and have held my head high with pride about it.... until now.

    the truth is that i listen to the show every saturday due to my part time job in a warehouse and, being a student, there is not even the minutest chance in hell of me ever listening to the show otherwise (as fantastic as it is).

    am i as valid as the next member to shout with the pride in my voice that i do that i am a soldier within the squadron? or are peoiple within their rights to hurl terrible and potentially offensive abuse at me being a 'fake' member?

    all responses welcome. thank you

    Hi Sam the gigantic mule. It seems that you are a member of Black Squadron by default? That's OK but your true test of commitment will come when you and your Squadron colleagues are asked to go over the top and potentially take one for the team. And rest assured the call will come.... only then will we see your devotion to this elite group. Egg in mouth, anyone?

    hello buckles, sexy and james!

    I am an underground overlord and am currently creating an army of darkness to defeat your black squadron.

    You have been warned!

    Any members just reply yes and we'll see the ratio of Army of Darkness (AOD) warriors to black squadron members.

    All the best

    thank you for the reply producer james. i can now rest assured knowing my place is safe. keep up the great work.

    ps is there a potential for some form of squadron garments to wear to show the dedication?? if so the uniform im currently wearing for work each saturday shall immediately be set alight and danced around in a voodoo-esque ritual, with me then donning the squadron colours instead.

    A couple of weeks prior to Easter, Adam and Joe talked about getting around to completing a Wedding Song Wars for a couple that had written into the show several months earlier. What ever happened to this Song Wars? Did the couple write in stating they had decided not to go through with the marriage or did Adam and Joe decide not to do the Song Wars?

    I love this podcast. By far and away the best one I subscribe to, and I subscribe to about 14! PLEASE keep them long. I know you can't put in any music but anything else is good. Whatever these guys say is comedy gold. Even them saying "here's the news" is fine by me!
    Well done James on producing the best radio show on the planet!

    Hey guys,
    I really love the podcast and never miss it. In fact I love your show so much that I would like to get hold of some of the older podcasts that were played before I started listening!!! I have tried to find them on the Big British Castle and other fan websites but I cant find any :( I was wondering if you or James Producer ( Funky name by the way :P) could help me out?
    Love the show keep up the good comedy and laughs!!
    ps I have drafted my friends in to listening to your show and they love it we often use some stephenage around school!! Its quite funny when the stephen in our year looks up and says 'What' with a confused expression *Chuckles!*

    Hey James & the gang (Yes, I know the who the real brains behind the operation is)

    Adam and Joe mentioned that we'd be able to place our own pics and vids and mp3s on here and I've got a few things I think the Adam, Joe and the fans of the Adam and Joe show might appreciate... how do I get it on here?

    I, my good lady wife and our 2 year old son Logan, LOVE the show and though I work most Saturday mornings, and miss the live show, my wife and Logan are proud members of Black squadron.

    Please excuse my shocking grammar. with English not being my 1st language (I'm Welsh) and a certain amount of late 80's early 90's action movie "brain deaded-ness". I know "brain deaded-ness" does not currently appear in the oxford English dictionary but I am a wordsmith at heart, if no words exist to convey what I mean (or more likely I am unaware of a word/words) I can create an appropriate words from anything... a lot like how god created man. (though I make no claims to be the Christian deity)

    Anyway keep up the good work!

    The Stephen badge reminds me of the logo for the amazingly good 90s band Pavement. That's all I have to say!

    Hey Buckles and JoeJoe,
    1st off I'd like to congratulate you on some really top notch spiffery of chat!!!! I enjoy the podcast immensely!!!
    HOWEVER, I, due to work commitments, I can NEVER listen to the live show and feel unduly berated by you that I cannot be in Black Squadron through no fault of my own. I'm in a quandry give up work? Then I can't pay for my home and computer and radio etc to LISTEN live!!! OR put up with and stop sulking? Perhaps some advice from listeners could help me solve this, yours themattimus and lil poo

    I must say i can't wait to spend the weekend with you two crazy guys at glastonbury i really thought i was going to miss it this year but obviously after your open invitation to all the listeners only listening on the podcast how on on earth could i refuse.As i'm 46 i really wasn't rellishing the idea of roughing it all weekend in a tent but well if we're all like hanging out together i suppose we'll have to like stay in some real flash winnebago or flash teepee with flunkies and that anyway can't wait to hear from you with the details etc pppps can you try and get podcasts on itunes as soon as only i work 5 nights so hardly ever catch full show on saturday absoloutely magnificent

  • Comment number 13.

    dear adam, joe, and of course james the producer as the week is drawing on and it won't be long to glastonbury i wondered if your invitation for us all to hang about together at the festival was still on and if you are going to send me through details about when we will all meet up etc, will i need to bring anything with me or will all be supplied by the big british castle.I must add that i didn't go to the isle of wight festival because of the promises you made on the podcast and i will be very dissapointed if i don't hear some news soon yoUrs in anticipation Dave
