IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE, PLAY ON!

With Michelle still out of action, I had the pleasure of fronting EAT MY LUNCH again today.

Apart from the usual crop of oddball stories, today’s programme was enriched by SYLVIA KENT of the BRENTWOOD WRITERS CIRCLE and BILLERICAY based novelist, ELIZABETH LORD from the Romantic Novelist’s Society.

As far as the quirky stories were concerned, we enjoyed the stories about a young guy who tried to masquerade as Rodney Trotter from TV’s ONLY FOOLS and HORSES to gain entry into a pub in Newquay. Not surprisingly since the date of birth on the fake ID showed him to be have been born in 1960 whilst he claimed to be 24, questions were asked. The fake ID even sported a picture of the real life actor, Nicholas Lyndhurst, coupled with the address of 23 Nelson Mandella House, Peckham. It came as little surprise that the landlord called him a “plonker” before throwing him out and alerting the police.

Police were also called to resolve a noisy neighbour dispute in Glasgow, only to discover that the miscreant in this case was an Amazonian Parrot, called Pepe. It seems that Pepe had formerly lived in a taxi office so apart from constantly repeating demands for taxis to various destinations, also had a somewhat more colourful repartée!

Staying in Scotland, the final “whacky” story today concerned the launch by a Scottish brewery of a new beer containing no less than 8 illegal performance enhancing ingredients ideal for participants in the London Olympics. The beer called “NEVER MIND THE ANABOLICS” was designed specifically to undermine the global sponsorship deals involved in the Olympics. A share of the proceeds in the new beer is to be given to a new surfboard for a surfing dog called, Abbie.

Now back to the serious stuff. Sylvia and Elizabeth came in specifically to talk about “lurve” and romance in books and literature from the days of Jane Austin up to present day writings. You can listen again to what they had to say here: – [audio:https://www.phoenixfm.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Book-club-interview.mp3|titles=Book club interview]

Hopefully Michelle will be back on parade tomorrow morning so things should now return to normal on the show. Nevertheless I’ve enjoyed being with you. Until the next time -“au revoir”!
