On this week's programme, there's a very special interview which we can't tell you too much about because we've forgotten who it's with. Acclaimed non-Frinton-based actress Anna Emerson will also be saying several words, and guest star Reg Chimpolomew will be doing very little. There's also the ongoing adventures of Basil the Cylinder, the answer's to last week's holdall-based quiz, and a whole host of other fabulous things which we've also forgotten about.
Lo, we find ourselves at the end of another season of nutty audio raves from John Dredge and his heavily-coerced team of Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft until such a time as they are prepared to go “boing” in the same room as each other again. But never fear, odd listener, for they go out in fine style with an appearance from the latest in extra-terrestrial specimens – and all for the price of a single Green Shield stamp. Now, there's value, value fans! Plus David Lynch makes a surprise appearance. (Oh, damn – I've ruined it.)
John Dredge says goodbye to 2012, also known as the Chinese Year of the Accoutrement, with yet another one of those crazy end-of-year round-ups of the year’s most shocking household implements. There will also be odd noises of all shapes and sizes, plus an argy-bargy of aquatic goodies including the sound of a very large splash, courtesy of our friends at Thames Water. All this, plus Leighton Buzzard in Color - whoopee! With Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft.
The omnipresent John Dredge returns – or does he? Some say he’s never been away - but tune in to find out anyway. Listeners in New Malden should take note that our roadshow team of one is also in the area, so please stand well back and allow her to pass along Coombe Road unhindered. Also this week: Who's behind the cartoon door? Is it Lord Hailsham? Or is it Richard Cray, Mark Davison, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft? It's difficult to tell in this light.
In the thrid of six new podcasts, John Dredge invites our crack team of announcers to announce what's in this week's announcer-packed programme, with each and every single announcement lovingly frosted with audio glucose. We welcome back agricultural song stylist Farmer Collins for some reason, and there's other things both here and there. If you'd like to swap this podcast for a game of Ker-plunk with half the accessories missing, give Noel a call on 01-811-8055. Otherwise: biscuits! With Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft.
In this week's edition, sideboards rule the roost and there's cubes a-plenty when Reigate comes into the picture - yet all is not as it seems (observe the conundrum as our theme tune is marched straight out of the studio). Pop personalities and phone-ins galore are also very much in short supply tonight, so grab your armchairs and await further instructions / know-how. Plus Trip Advisor's Peter Pilbeam tells you where to go...but not why, sadly. With John Dredge, Richard Cray, Anna Emerson, Greg Haiste, and James Shakeshaft.
