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.

Uncle Davey calls Fiona Dutton’s Global Newstalk


Original YT playout date: 23 March 2009
Duration: 25:50

“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.

Enjoy.”

The New Tommy Boyd Show 23rd September 2008


Original YT playout date: 27 December 2008
Duration: 3:58:02

Only the second in his new series, but unfortunately the last to be cammed. It was Stuart Heron that we have to thank for the cams, and unfortunately with the demise of his firm the cam server also went. Best of luck to you Stu and hope you like your new work.

That’s it then, with the cam feeds of radio I have, unless Playradio set cams up next year and want me to keep going. But we’ll find that out if and when it happens. For now, enjoy this great show, in which I don’t exactly come out glorious myself, but that’s the risk you take when you call a radio show – sometimes you look like a legend, and sometimes like a plonker. That’s all part of the fun. Enjoy.

Original YT playout date: 27 September 2008
Duration: 4:01:01

“Here Tommy was standing in for James Whale and he gives at the end some broad hint that he may be returning for more shows in the future.

Well, by now of course we know the whole story – he came back but PRUK went belly up anyway. Which was a big pity. But I’m telling you the plot!

Don’t miss the interesting chat between Tom and Viktor Huliganov near the start of the show.”
