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.

The New Tommy Boyd Show 22nd September 2008


Original YT playout date: 24 December 2008
Duration: 3:56:49

There are but two of these, the first in the new series of Tommy Boyd starting on 22nd September. After that, the cams went off. This is the penultimate radio show I have to play out from http://www.Playradiouk.com . In the new year, if the cams come back and they want me to do more, there may be more, but I don’t know anything for sure about that yet. As it is, enjoy this fantastic show and then the last show from the 23rd September, which I plan to upload between Christmas and New Year.

This particular show caused no end of controversy, as Tommy revealed it was indeed his own decision to allow the skype chats associated with the show to be “privatised”.

In the first half hour Seismorg bravely takes on Tommy about this decision, and gets told that he doesn’t have a right to his opinion. That’s what Seismorg thought Tommy said, although regular listeners will know that Tommy has an a priori view that people do not, per se, have a right to hold opinions unless they have put the work in to research them. but Seismorg took it personally, and after this was never to be heard on PlayRadio again. I hope that listening back people will see that no disrespect to him was intended, and somehow persuade him of this, as his input in shows is sorely missed.

Mike Mendoza Show #10 from 9th September 2008 on PlayTwo UK


 

Original YT playout date: 8 December 2008
Duration: 3:59:30

“There was a time these long ones used to upload OK first time. Those days seem like history now, as Uncle Davey tries the fifth time to upload this tenth Mike Mendoza show.

This might be the last one of Mike’s shows I upload as people are not really watching them in great numbers, but it takes me a long time to do it.

However, when Mike’s shows on this channel get up to an aggregate of 1000 hits (an average of 100 per show) then I’ll put up two more.

I’m now quite close to the end of radio material before the cams went off on PRUK, by the way.

“I don’t know how much patience I need to keep on trying to upload pieces of audio that need about ten attempts.

Anyway, a good show with an interview with KBC’s Al Rantel in the run-up to the US elections, and a good zooey session in the last part of the show.

You’d better jolly listen now!”

Last in Series show of James Whale on Play Radio UK


Original YT playout date: 15 November 2008
Duration: 3:54:34

You’ve got the whole series now, of James Whale’s shows on PRUK. Unfortunately for his international viewers, James decided to try out a show at LBC instead, which is a local radio station for London. In fact one of the first and most successful independent radio stations in Europe, unlike Playradio UK which was not commercially successful and which already at the time you see here was preparing behind the scenes for its own demise. It lives on on this and one or two other channels. Hopefully we will see him and other colleagues from that time again in the future, in the meantime, here’s a final chance to see the master at work in the Sussex studio of PRUK.
