“Pij mleko! Bedziesz wielki” so says the sign as the two modern day milk bar Tom Cruises go into action wielding bottles and tetrapacks of milk in an impromptu barman’s routine, here in the Real hipermarket lobby in Okecie. The milky bar is on them.

“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”

Original YT playout date: 3 September 2009
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.

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.

“Part of what was to be a new, groundbreaking internet news programme with the one and only Fiona Dutton (dubbed by Tommy Boyd as “”the best bottom in broadcasting””) on Play Talk internet radio, part of the http://www.playradiouk.com network.
Here we talk about what’s wrong the Roman Catholic church putting the world to rights on sex, and also about the death penalty.
This is just a short cut from a two hour programme the full version of which available on the playradio podcast for 19th March also features calls with Paul from Northern Ireland and the Terence HIggins trust.
