Unlike Jim White, you won’t be disappointed. Paragons of virtue this week are; Flav, Windy, Ricky, Thelonious and Spooky (with Engineer Dave guesting). Love the shirt. Listen now!

S2E24 – When was the last time that happened?

Episode 24. This week we’ve got a guest cameo by Amanda Jacks from the Football Supporters Federation talking about our rights and safe standing and fighting against the banes of modern football.

That’s part one. Part two was lobotomised due to a technical hitch. Enjoy what was left of it. Windy Yoof Update included. Flav, Ricky and Charlie in amongst. Love the shirt.... Read more »

S2E19 – It’s got a little Windy in here

Episode 19. They said it would never last. Essential show this week as the brilliant Chris Miller ‘gangster pop star physicist cook and patio builder’ guests.

We’ve got a poignant quote, a shout-out and the usual meltdown that proceeds ‘questions from the listeners’. The features this week ain’t too shabby either. Cooking up a storm: Flav,... Read more »
