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.

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.

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/

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.

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.
