Help me not get on radio in 2014

Hola. Hope you are well and having a good Christmas.

As some of you may (or may not) know I’m one half of the 3Prong Attack radio show. We are currently running a campaign to not be put on a radio station in 2014.

Please listen to the campaign (1min16) and if you can help us in our aim of not getting on radio we would be grateful.

The only feedback we’ve had so far came from a BBC producer I know, who described it in one word, ‘bonkers…’. That is high praise in my book.

Til next time, stay safe!

Forgetfulness, fatigue and bladder issues

Hola. Hope you are well.

Two weeks ago, I went to see my mate Prong2 (him from my radio show, 3Prong Attack) perform with his band, Stage Door Guy.

This meant, the following morning (Fri) before work I had to transfer the contents of my pockets from my going out trousers to my work trousers. This was essentially the 2 front pockets, yet this proved beyond me, as I only transferred one of my pockets.

I only realised my error when I was heading to the train station and realised I didn’t have my Oyster card. Neither did I have my keys, so couldn’t get back into my flat. Luckily ‘Her With One Part-time Job’ was still at home so I tried to ring her, but found out I had no credit on my phone. This is not the affluent image London likes to portray.

I didn’t cover myself with much more glory the next day, (Sat), when having been woken up early by a neighbour’s heavy footed child, followed by afternoon drinking with an old school friend, meant that by early evening I found myself needing a nap. The only problem being, I was in a theatre, a very intimate theatre, where I was on the front row.

Apparently it took me 2 mins to nod off. The only time I was able to stay awake was in the last half hour of the play, when I was concentrating hard on not wetting myself.

I’m sure if I were a few years older, my forgetfulness, fatigue and bladder issues would see my family researching retirement homes.

Ps. Feel free to let me know, when you have fallen asleep in inappropriate places. You can contact me via the comments button.

Til next time, stay safe!

Wigan peerless

Hola. Hope you are well.

I feel like I should take you back to October and tell you about the other 2 gigs I did in that month, mainly because I do so few gigs that it might be next October before I do another one.

I’ve already told you of the poetry workshop I did in Sandbach and the comedy gig, where no audience turned up. My next gig saw me compering the final of The Superheroes of Slam Poetry in Manchester.

It was a good gig and as no one else will say it (I’ve checked the reviews) I did a good job as compere. For those that don’t know who won, (you’ve only had 2 months to find out) it was Joy France, from Wigan. This means Wigan currently hold the FA Cup, The Challenge Cup, the Grand Final winners and now the Superhero of Slam Poetry. Could Wigan be the most successful place on the planet?

My next gig, saw me return to Manchester, where I was compering the evening’s entertainment at the Black and Asian Writers conference. The headline act was a white guy from North Manchester (he did have dreads). Some people may say this is an example of pc gone mad or claim tokenism but I say give these white artists a chance, they’ve had it tough in this country and if we artists of colour can help and can give them a leg up, we should.  Can I also add, some of my best friends are white, although I do sometimes find it hard to tell them apart.

Til next time, stay safe!
