Happy June 10th

I started this six months ago and for some reason decided it was really important to listen from start to finish. In the last episode I listened to there was a song about June 10th and today is June 10th so I have decided this is a sign to write a review about how much Ive enjoyed listening to pop culture news from ten years ago. Funny funny show!

This is superb

Pacey, structured delivery. Fun games. Potty-mouthed guests enabled by a skilled host. Alive to power, gender, sexuality and ethnicity. Comedy for grown ups who know what really matters between people.

Still quite good.....

This used to be one of my faves, it was rather jolly good when it had the Brits.

Now it is still....... ok.

Sorry.
