The Swear Box Is Filling Up

A very strange show tonight, I didn't have the motivation to begin with and felt as if I wasn't firing on all cylinders and had left my best fight in the gym, to mangle two expressions together. Penny has taken part in a fifty mile cycle ride today for charity, (sponsor her here) and was rather giddy. I found it a struggle for some reason, even though we had a guest; Darren Patterson from Nottingham Live, who is writing about the station. During the final hour of the show, which is confusingly recorded before the first two hours are broadcast live, Penny told me to fuck off. During the live show, Andy was refreshing the computer system from his office, and I couldn't control the studio PC. During a song, I forgot to switch the microphone off before complaining that Andy was 'fuck-arsing' around with the computers.

NB- Dire Straits was this week's 'dad rock classic'. Although I started the feature as a 'guilty pleasure' slot in which I could ironically enjoy woefully uncool songs. This has backfired a bit, as tonight's show proved as myself, Penny, and Darren were all sat in the studio singing along.
