Wonderful (slightly naughty) entertainment
For many years my husband has often mentioned it would be great if a CD/ or? was to be issued with all of the Des’s Dedication stories. We both loved listening to “Des” and his Double entendres on our separate journeys home from work in the early noughties My husband often quotes the ruder sections from The Gardener and The Plastic Window Fitter episodes.
When I discovered this podcast we were overjoyed and have wiled away the hours of self isolating reacquainting ourselves with Des’s various adventures together with being introduced to Black Country Bob, the Rainbow characters, and “Arthur Lowe’s” Mister Men stories.
Keep up the good work.
This is absolutely BRILLIANT!!
The best podcast I have ever listened to.
As a Brummie, it brings back some happy memories and reminds me of the talent Dants has! (He’s OK for a Bluenose)
Seriously though, this podcast kept me smiling during the lockdown and I am always excited on a Monday morning (yes, Monday morning) to listen to the latest episode.
Thank you so much and keep up the great work!
The good old days
Don’t know how you used to get away with it! Brings back some great memories of my time as an apprentice at the “workshops” Hams Hall when barmy brummies was always tuned in to.
Any chance of des’ time as a green grocer or any thing with Tom Ross?
Keep up the good work!
