Welcome to July!

The start of a new month and another week of hopefully good weather!

On today’s show we heard the bizarre story of the offer made (but subsequently withdrawn) by one of the Russian Burger King franchises to offer a reward of 3 million rubles (about £35k) and a lifetime supply of whoppers, to any girl who managed to get herself pregnant by a World Cup player.

Wonder how any claim could have been successfully proved if all the potential impregnators had left the country!

Staying with the bizarre, we heard about the cruise with a difference aboard the so-called “TORTURE SHIP”.


The vessel is actually no more than a barge which provides an annual one-night trip across Lake Constance between Germany and Switzerland for fans of bondage and sadomasochism.

Organisers were a bit disappointed by this year’s turnout which was sadly affected by the fact that on the night chosen for this year’s outing, Germany were playing Sweden in the World Cup.

Presumably the “Torture Ship” does not provide TV in the cabins!

Nevertheless 500 bondage and masochist fans, flaunting an impressive array of bondage gear, including gimp masks, figure hugging corsets, horse masks and a collection of whips and chains, still took to the water.

Better luck next year then!

See you again tomorrow,

About Scott Ross

A lifelong passion for radio, love of music and a belief in the importance of real local radio! These are the reasons why I joined Phoenix FM, where I've been presenting a regular show since August 2010. My regular weekday midday shows are shared with other presenters and include funny stories and a wide variety of guests. When I'm not on Phoenix FM you can catch me on other radio bands as I am also a licenced radio amateur - 2E0ESX. Radio is supposed to be a “fun’” industry so it’s really great to be part of a real local station offering the freedom to be ourselves and have fun on air.
