A Visit from D’Ukes and a Tale of Being Lost in Iceland

After their crowd pleasing performance at our recent Phoenix Fridays gig, it was great to welcome back to the studio, the finest Ukulele band in the known universe! – D’Ukes. Members Martin Burdikin, Jo Kerr and Phil Seeley were unable to get in today but we still had Hazel and Brian Smith, John Mattock and founder member Dave Warren to tell us all about the band and what they’ve been getting up to.

Brian, John, Dave and Hazel of D'Ukes

Brian, John, Dave and Hazel of D’Ukes

You can hear our chat and some live music from D’Ukes here –

D’Ukes will be performing at Witham Public Hall, Collingwood Road, Witham CM8 2DY tomorrow (Friday) at 7.30pm (Box Office 0845 017 8717) and on Saturday 22 March at The Brookside Theatre, 21 Eastern Road in Romford at 8pm (Box Office 01708 755775)

You can find out more about them here – D’Ukes

Also in today’s show we talked about The Billericay Town Council meeting that had to be abandoned last week has now been re-aranged for Wednesday 19th March at the Mayflower School, Stock Road.
The Street Light Switch off petition, a safety warning about children’s teething jewellery and dangerous Paving in Brentwood High Street.

We also had some crazy news –

A missing woman on holiday in Iceland managed to join a search party looking for herself.

A tourist group travelling by bus to the volcanic Eldgja canyon made a stop near the canyon park. The woman in question who was travelling alone, went inside to freshen up and change her clothes at the rest stop, and when she came back “her bus mates didn’t recognise her.”

Word spread among the group of a missing passenger, and the woman didn’t recognise the description of herself.

A 50-person search party then began searching the area, and the coast guard was mobilized to deploy a search party of its own.

About 3am, some genius in the group finally figured out that the missing woman was actually in the search party, albeit in different clothes, and the search was called off.

No word on what kind of wardrobe was involved in this woman’s “freshening up.” But she joined the search party until 3am without even suspecting for a minute that the woman in the description bore some resemblance to herself!
