CakePops, Shop Gigs, And The Sad Fate Of Myspace Tom

One of my most enjoyable shows, with Chris Underwood as my co-presenter once again. I have asked Chris to do it more often, as we worked well with each other tonight, with us bouncing ideas around and injecting humour into our chat without either of us becoming too DJ-ish. (I'm a broadcaster not a DJ).

Also, Chris brought in some cake pops, made by his girlfriend Neli's company We Are Delish, who became the unofficial sponsor of the show. Although my offer of doing a modelling shoot for her advertising hasn't earned me a call back...
