A Week on Drive by Charlie

The new Drive show is now a month old – That’s longer than some of my relationships…

On Monday, we had gadget+tech guru, Pete Sipple, in to talk about being safe online and how to avoid falling for fake/spam e-mails as well as being on your guard when online shopping and handing over your personal details.  We also spoke about introducing your children to the internet: With supervision, ISP tools (to prevent adult sites from being accessed) plus a hardware WiFi solution.  Click the interview page here to listen-again.

Tuesday saw me popping into town to visit the Chicken and Frog bookshop where Natasha Radford kindly spoke with me about the store, its activities and gave us 3 book suggestions to keep the youngers happy this half-term. You can find that interview on this page here.

…and here’s the best/worst of the week:

A Scott Ross Boogie!

There are cushions on the bonkett!

How to make a fellow presenter cry – Play her a clip of her show!

Nectar Points – just what is the “point”?

Adverts, Banners and annoying videos that follow you when scrolling down a page!

I found the pitch-shifter on the CD players – Hilarity ensued…

Our studio air-freshener smells like a tart’s window-box…

So I blocked Trump on Twitter!

Charlie Puth – Some questions best left to the imagination…

Flying cars and really bad parking…

Is it Valentine’s Day?

Friday was, of course, film reviews with Mark Searby and you can hear those on this page!

We’re back Monday afternoon at 3pm for more fun and games plus the latest travel, local event news and some jolly good tunes.
