  4. Jeremy Vine interupted a sax solo on a record to give out the news. Was this intentional irony? (Baker Street and all that).
  5. Only he never done the Sax on Baker Street!
  6. Hence the irony?

  13. I met him about 12 years ago when I did some chauffeurring work for the Birmingham Film Festival. He was a really nice bloke. He chatted a fair amount en route London - Birmingham and asked if I minded him stinking the car out with his curry (I think) sandwich.

    I was happy enough to have his agent, and daughter, in my rear view mirror !

  14. Regular as clockwork:

    Back from tea after a hot day slaving in the training wing, nick a cuppa for in the room and get stuck into an episode of Blockbusters.

    After that a little kip and off to the 2 Sawyers.

    Great Days.
