Get The Nudey On

Tonight (Thursday), my former housemate and co-presenter of our radio show on RaW, Adair is attempting to make it on his own. He is appearing on Anita Anand's show on 5live as a guest panellist.
The show's website says this about him:
Adair is 24 years old. He's done nude modelling and used to fence for Wales. He once smuggled bibles into Eastern Europe. On tonight's show he'll tell us where he hid them.
The show is on between 10pm and 1am on 909 & 693 AM/MW but if you miss it or you are reading this posthumously then you can downlaod it again from here.

Mr Pong Hi

As Ding Junhui was losing to Ronnie O'Sullivan in the UK Masters final and someone in the crowd was shouting something derogatory about the Chinese (although this could have been to O’Sullivan) I was playing Mysteries of Old Peking with Joff and Jenna (whom I would like to thank for their wonderful hospitality over the weekend – thank you) which is a fantastic board game combining Cluedo and Guess Who but with Chinese stereotypes. Yet another board game they should start a World Championships in.

The Factory

It's a while since I posted anything evangelistic so here's the new Alpha Course promo video that was shown in church this morning - it's very good!

Get Out The Sand Bags

According to the news: Severe weather brings flood risk.

You may know I live next to the Great River Oose and I was alarmed to see my house was inside the purple "danger" area.

Day Of The Traffords

Highlight from Chris and Rachel's wedding:

Minister: (reading vows for Rach to repeat) As Christ loved the church,
Rach: (silence)
Minister: (louder and more deliberate) As Christ loved the church,
Rach: (pauses) That's wrong!
Minister: (glances at service sheet) Oh, it is wrong!


Minister: (sympathetically pats Chris on shoulder) She doesn't miss a thing, does she!

Thanks to Mr Peter Swan for this biog written for the RaW Sport Blog.


Name: David Sheffield

Position: Legend

Team: Crystal Palace

Home town: Bedford at the moment – lucky him

First Match for RaW Sport: Coventry v Norwich (Nov 05)

Famed for his passion for athletics and amazing investigative journalism Dave Sheffield is probably one of the most universally popular people ever to speak into to a RaW microphone (with the possible exception of Timmy Mallet). Sadly, now that he is out in the real world – he works for Ben and Jerry’s don’t you know – we see less of him than we’d ideally like, however whilst he can’t always make the show his creative genius is always in play via the RaW Sport Quiz.

People often ask me who this ‘Dave Sheffield’ we always refer to during the quiz actually is and whether he is real. Well I can confirm that the seemingly mythical quiz master who would class the Sport Watchers Guide as his Bible (if he didn’t already rate the actual Bible so highly) is a genuine person. If you haven’t caught the RaW Sport quiz tune in Saturday’s from 5.30pm to be both entertained and educated. Ever wanted to know what a ‘googly’ is? Tune in and you just might find out.

Nevertheless before he left for the real world quiz master Dave was equally respected for his ‘witty’ one liners and amazing special reports which took him to, among other places, Warwick’s first dodgball tournament and the Horse of the Year Show. Certainly without Dave RaW would have been a lot duller place to be over the last year or so. Mr Sheffield – I salute you.
