Go West young(ish) man

Bristol here I come!

Don't get excited it's only for tomorrow - am attending a training day with my fellow mid morning radio presenters across the country. Should be good - it's always fun to find out how other people do it so to speak.

It's billed as a chance to talkthrough shows and exchange radio ideas. However it invariably leads to a day of everyone nicking each other's best bits on the basis that at least one person is brave enough/stupid enough to share theirs.

(Mental note to self and any passing MP's - don't type it out and then parade ideas in public in a clear folder)

Anyway expect a raft of new features from Monday!

Still slightly confused about this business of letters on phone buttons. Proper office and home phones I'm talking about. Look at yours and see where all the letters are.

a) what's the point of them anyway?
b) why are there no letters on the number 1? What's everyone got against it?

Various explainations have come in about the way telephone exchanges worked and the fact the number 1 was the operators number but I'm sure there's more to it ...

Anyway - look after TP tomorrow - he's doing Friday's show - and I'll see you next week.

Have a great (if slightly early) weekend.


PS Now I've found out it's so easy to put photo's up will attempt a few more for you.

So here's the joke ...

There was this car that was driving very slowly down the M27.

A police officer pulls it over.

"What have I done wrong, officer?" the driver asks.

"You are going 27mph on a motorway. There is a law against that," the officer says to the driver.

"You must go at least 30mph."

"But when I turned on the highway, the sign said 27!" the driver replies.

"HA HA HA!" The officer laughs out loud. "That is because this is Motorway 27! The 27 isn't the speed limit!"

The driver leans back in their seat and the cop sees a woman sitting in the passenger seat - She looked as pale as a ghost.

"What happened to her?" the officer asks.

"We've just come off the M275."
