Greetings apologies for late blog meetings will be held. This is the blog of officially the smelliest show on radio. Others can only look on and marvel. Opening a can of Surstromming on the show was considered unwise. Wisely. Our Swedish friends advised us against it. Fermented Baltic Herring they said has little in it's favour and it should be eaten outdoors with bread and alcohol. We had no intention of eating it of course merely exisiting in the same room as it. Well I managed to complete the feature at least. To start with I thought it would be a non event but when the wave of nastiness hit me it was only a matter of time before sense overcame professionalism and we scarpered so that Rebecca could interview Alistair Darling. Such is Drivetime. If you look up Surstromming in Wikipedia it now contains a reference to our bravery. Radio history indeed.
To make up for all that Nigel prepares and delivers the best Welsh Rarebit of your life. It is only posh cheese on toast so heaven knows how he can make it last 20 minutes but we'll think of something. At least it will take away the stench of pickled fermented fish from the toilet.
And for oldies I think we should go with FORGETFULNESS this is because in the UAS Republican hopefull Rick Perry has blown his chances of getting the nomination by forgetting his own policies. He said he would abolish three government departments "commerce, education and eh... let me see...sorry...oops..." Oops indeed. We've all done similar of course but we don't want to be president of the USA. FORGETTING in all it's tuneful guises welcome.
Have a spectacular and memorable Thursday...see you after 5.!!
