Tom off Tots TV talks about Listening with PMS, and Alan does his Jade Goody reportage.


Original YT playout date: 7 January 2010
Duration: 2:363

It’s 23rd March 2009, Tommy and Fiona are in the studio, but it’s not long before the listeners take over the agenda – first off is Tom off Tots TV, asking why PRUK doesn’t do “”Listen with Mother””. But Fiona and Tommy are having none of this blatant sexism from the now extinct children’s TV puppet. But their tactics are not strictly ballroom! When Tom Ragdoll cites the research of Jean Piaget, Tommy tries to discredit Piaget’s findings and trick Tom off Tots TV into thinking the celebrated Swiss psychologist was a woman, and then to cap that he asks the blue-haired Tot to hold the line – at which point he dumps the call!

This is followed by a two-seconder from everyone’s favorite radio Spaniard, and then Alan Caddick takes up the cudgels to introduce the listening public to the phenomenon of Jade Goody. Which soon brings the subject back to maternal deprivation again, and Tommy voices his Theory on Marginally Improving Parenthood.

One of Tommy’s Best Ever Soliloquys (on Atlas Shrugged)


Original YT playout date: 29 December 2009
Duration: 28:21

Edited from the podcast of 10th March 2009. Which is where I am on the podcast catch up right now. It’s an open secret that “Connor” is actually none other than the Atlanta correspondent of “Downfall” fame doing a persona. Tommy gets very passionate and ranty, and although he has no callers in this show he lets himself go with the flow and we get some classic Boyd as a result.

 

Oddly I am actually listening only now to the audiobook of Atlas Shrugged after hearing it from Tommy Boyd 12 years previously. Its popularity is not dimishing and it is even more actual today than it ever was.

Viktor on the Radio with Oscar from Surbiton and Tommy Boyd


Original YT playout date: 20 December 2009
Duration: 34:33

We’re discussing the whole area of racism and nationalism – is it possible for a person ever to be completely free of a trace of racism and nationalism? Isn’t it a trait too deeply ingrained in our tribal characters? Is it always necessarily bad to have preconceptions about other races and nations? What about racial or nationalist jokes – can they ever be acceptable?

Radio from Playradio UK last spring featuring Oscar and Viktor on the Tommy Boyd Show. Please join the discussion either here or on Tommy Boyd’s new wordpress site, http://mrtommyboyd.wordpress.com

The End of US Hegemony? Tommy Boyd and Callers


Original YT playout date: 19 September 2009
Duration: 29:25

“Twas the night before Anti-Christmas, and all through the net

Play radio was broadcasting the usual shhh…stuff.

The listeners were opening their skypes and their feeds

In the hopes that the Boydster would fill their talkradio needs

So on the night before the day when Barack Obama

Was due to take over from a Texan cattle farmer

Old Tommy was exploring a brand new idea

That with Barack the end of US power was near

More vapid than beagles his callers they came

And seeing them on Skype he called them by name

“On Eduardo! On Viktor! On Steve from Atlanta!

Just give us a bit of talk radio banter”

When all is done and the stories are told

We will look back and say “that was radio gold”

NTTBS Reunion 30th August 2009


Original YT playout date: 3 September 2009
Duration: 3:02:29

The show that put the “”ear”” back into “”end of an era””. Featuring the vocal talents of Stu, Matt, Jo and Arron in the playradiouk.com studio (courtesy of Lee), and the usual contributors outside the studio (well, also inside, as there was the traditional studio invasion). The Jason-Mason posse did the invasion, while on the phones and skypes we heard gems from such seasoned contributors as Leslie Grufford, Gary Redbeard of Kattfjord, Fat Steve from Atlanta, Paddy O’Donahue and Viktor Huliganov of this channel, CfWW, Alan Caddick, Brummie Chris, Johnny Harzenfarzen and Eduardo too, all having fun for the last time. Sniff sniff.

My thanks to Mick of http://www.mickynwa.com for the captured files for this.

Tommy Boyd and Viktor Huliganov discuss Tommy’s social experiment on media-fuelled outrage


Original YT playout date: 27 June 2009
Duration: 24:18

This was a live radio broadcast on Play Talk UK on 16th December 2008. Tommy Boyd and Nicky in the Studio received a skype call from this channel’s very own Viktor D. Huliganov, and the topics of discussion include:

1) Tommy’s famous “”set-up”” of Off Com and the powers that be by feigning that part of the country had down time. In fact what he did was fade down all the programme, so that no-body heard anything, following which he played pre-recorded complaints about what he was supposed to have said in the meantime. Find out what happened next …

2) Discussion of Viz, and why it isn’t translatable into other languages

3) A review of the internet project http://www.internetshout.com/

Enjoy!

Radio Discussion on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide


Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Original YT playout date: 11 April 2009
Duration: 14:01

On Play Talk UK, Global Newstalk Show with rising talk radio journalist Fiona Dutton, from 6th April 2009.

With photos made by me, except for the image of Fiona, which is off her facebook page.

For anyone who has forgotten it, here is the beginning of the original Hippocratic oath from 4 centuries before Christ (hence they swore to false deities, but the intentions were just):

Ὄμνυμι Ἀπόλλωνα ἰητρὸν, καὶ Ἀσκληπιὸν, καὶ Ὑγείαν, καὶ Πανάκειαν, καὶ θεοὺς πάντας τε καὶ πάσας, ἵστορας ποιεύμενος, ἐπιτελέα ποιήσειν κατὰ δύναμιν καὶ κρίσιν ἐμὴν ὅρκον τόνδε καὶ ξυγγραφὴν τήνδε.
Ἡγήσασθαι μὲν τὸν διδάξαντά με τὴν τέχνην ταύτην ἴσα γενέτῃσιν ἐμοῖσι, καὶ βίου κοινώσασθαι, καὶ χρεῶν χρηίζοντι μετάδοσιν ποιήσασθαι, καὶ γένος τὸ ἐξ ωὐτέου ἀδελφοῖς ἴσον ἐπικρινέειν ἄῤῥεσι, καὶ διδάξειν τὴν τέχνην ταύτην, ἢν χρηίζωσι μανθάνειν, ἄνευ μισθοῦ καὶ ξυγγραφῆς, παραγγελίης τε καὶ ἀκροήσιος καὶ τῆς λοιπῆς ἁπάσης μαθήσιος μετάδοσιν ποιήσασθαι υἱοῖσί τε ἐμοῖσι, καὶ τοῖσι τοῦ ἐμὲ διδάξαντος, καὶ μαθηταῖσι συγγεγραμμένοισί τε καὶ ὡρκισμένοις νόμῳ ἰητρικῷ, ἄλλῳ δὲ οὐδενί.

Διαιτήμασί τε χρήσομαι ἐπ’ ὠφελείῃ καμνόντων κατὰ δύναμιν καὶ κρίσιν ἐμὴν, ἐπὶ δηλήσει δὲ καὶ ἀδικίῃ εἴρξειν.

Οὐ δώσω δὲ οὐδὲ φάρμακον οὐδενὶ αἰτηθεὶς θανάσιμον, οὐδὲ ὑφηγήσομαι ξυμβουλίην τοιήνδε. Ὁμοίως δὲ οὐδὲ γυναικὶ πεσσὸν φθόριον δώσω. Ἁγνῶς δὲ καὶ ὁσίως διατηρήσω βίον τὸν ἐμὸν καὶ τέχνην τὴν ἐμήν.””

Which, being translated, meaneth:

“”I swear by Apollo, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath.
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art.

I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.””

It seems that some people think that they ought to be allowed to pressure their doctors into becoming traitors to this ancient oath, which is not recited verbatim these days but of which the main intent, relevent to this debate, is inherent in all the modern equivalents.”

Davey voices off on the Tommy Boyd show


Original YT playout date: 31 March 2009
Duration: 27:50

This was from 7th Oct 2008. There had been some interesting calls already from Eduardo, and also a telephone interview with the pro lap dancing lobbyist society’s propaganda chief, and then I came on as Paddy O’Donahue making quite a serious point despite the humoroustick manner, which was followed up by Eduardo calling to state that my Irish accent was no good. This stung me into action, resulting in one of the most pleasant and entertaining conversations I’ve had with Tommy Boyd, in which I do about six or seven different accents, offer a remarkably unfunny joke, and we get to hear a very amusing prank call involving two Indian restaurants. In other words, radio gold! Happy to say some of these radio friendships have lasted, and even today, in October 2020, as I transfer this across to HTV, I had an entirely unscheduled interraction on Facebook with Eduardo. Radio brings people together.

Radio Gold with Tommy Boyd


Original YT playout date: 11 March 2009
Duration: 24:38

A discussion with the talkradio guru about a number of topics: driving in Poland, surfeits of lampreys (it was Henry I by the way – I got the Henry bit right) Henry the Eighth, and about meeting Lech Walesa and Lech Balcerowicz. The video of the evening I’m talking about with Tommy is coming up as the next video and that’s going to be my 750th video, as it is a very special video. It’s rare to see those two giants of Polish politics on the same platform.
