Ben is not going to be on the air for 5 weeks - he'll be doing this instead!

Ben is not going to be on the air for 5 weeks – he’ll be doing this instead!

To celebrate his forthcoming departure ‘up north’ for another Pantomime season, Ben dedicates his entire show to panto, and all things pantoey! If that’s a word.

As well as Simmo’s Simple Sports News and On This Day, Ben also manages to squeeze in a 7 minute telephone interview with current Strictly Come Dancing star, Debbie McGee. In a relatively short time Debbie discusses her 40 point tango, her enjoyment of live Saturday Night tv, her own upcoming Pantomime and the smell of Vikings!

All music played this week has been featured in pantos Ben has performed in, or directed. Having already done 17, there was quite a catalogue to choose from.

As a clear theme for this week’s show fails to materialise, Ben is inspired by the number 4 on his 4th show. No more numerical themes for a while, although for the next few weeks he could just continually play 5,6,7,8 by Steps! Click the player below to allow an avalanche of unpredictable ridiculousness to enter your ears. Go on! You’ve been warned. But gently.

Music featured by Robbie Williams, Wamdue Project, Alesha Dixon, The Four Seasons, Toploader, Kool and the Gang, Sheryl Crow and some other people as well.

The Show That Goes Like This gets scary at Halloween – with Ben Simmons

Ben couldn't get a pumpkin at late notice. At least this was a similar shape

Ben couldn’t get a pumpkin at late notice. At least this was a similar shape.

Ben Simmons terrifies us all with another broadcast of The Show That Goes Like This.

Featuring Simmo’s Simple Sports News and On This Day together with some great chat, amusing anecdotes and occasionally tenuously linked scary songs, but good songs nonetheless!

The only show still not scared to play Steps, as well as the likes of The Automatic, Ella Henderson, Michael Jackson, Rihanna, The Darkness, Basement Jaxx and loads more.
