Train of History


Original YT playout date: 3 February 2009
Duration: 30:40

History is like a train, with one carriage inexorably drawing the next one on, the track already laid ahead of time, the only matter for discussion being how much delay there will be and how well you can keep occupied on the journey.

So what better place for me to review H G Wells’ Short History of the World? 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.

Tommy Boyd Show from 19th August 2008 on Playradio UK


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.”
