NEWS FROM ADAM
Speaking of the show, we are in the process of completely reinventing the entire programme. There'll be 10 guests every hour, all of them plugging their new book/CD/TV show/film/charity exercise/unhinged philosophy, and every interview we conduct with them will leave you confused and depressed. In between interviews there'll be a lot of music by Bruno Mars who is also providing us with new jingles and a new theme song. Features like Text The Nation and Made Up Jokes are to be replaced with new interactive features like Where You Callin'? wherein people tell us where they are calling from then hang up, and Weather Whot, which gives callers an opportunity to tell us very briefly about the weather where they are (I thought of this and I think it's a good one).
We'll also have of a lot of stuff about Charlie Sheen. There'll be regular 'Sheenews' updates, 'Winning!' mashups and Charlie jingles along with a lot of Sheen based humour and banter. Joe wasn't really up for this stuff but I forced it through and I think it's a winner because everyone is focused on Charlie right now and you need to give people what they want if they don't realise they want it or don't need it or even really want it.
Needless to say I can't wait to be back. I've missed doing the show a lot. On a serious note (not that the other stuff about all our new features wasn't serious of course) Joe and I are both heavily indebted to Andrew Collins & Richard Herring who stepped in for us all those months ago then ended up making our lovely warm slot their own despite not really knowing how temporary or not the arrangement was, quite an enervating position to be in I'll warrant. I don't imagine for a second our 3 month return spells the end of the line on 6 for them, but anyway, wanted to say thanks.
In the meantime, you can help us with our first show back by getting in touch with any personal anecdotes you may have accrued in the last 15 months(!) since we've been away. I know that's a bit vague but if your message is sufficiently interesting we will almost certainly fit it in to a special edition of 'Annecdotties' between the Charlie Sheen stuff and whichever Bruno Mars songs we're playing.
