    Ah well....., as you may have read on the other thread, what you missed was a live broadcast by Kokopeli from Christchurch via Skype and very good it was, too. There were a few technical problems to iron out where Koko was booming through loud and clear but those in the studio could hardly be heard. Well, you wouldn't expect it to go right first time, would you ? Once that was sorted it was a great experience having someone sensible on air for a change . In fact, it was quite a sensible programme all round which isn't like us at all. I'm just trying to think what we discussed throughout the show, but I can't remember . I'm sure someone will remember. Hubster made an unexpected trip home for his lunch which totally threw me out of kilter. Plus my Internet connection was playing up and I spent more time going in and out of the Radio Room than paying attention.

    There was going to be a show this coming Saturday but it's WG's birthday and we've not moved any further forward regarding the clocks changing in the UK and problems choosing an alternate time slot. Perhaps we should all club together to pay for therapy. I've heard withdrawal symptoms aren't very nice.

    From what I hear, I missed the radio debut of Kokopelli ... I hope you were nice to him, Dawn.

    We've been thinking of doing a Sunday Morning show instead (Saturday evening UK time) but we've not been able to figure out how to fill Dawn up with red wine that early in the day without severe consequences!

    I'm sure Dawn wouldn't object to wine that early- tell her it is Christmas Day and there will be no stopping her. (not that I want it to be Christmas already).

    A sunday morning/sat night show would be good- we can all be drunk in the radio room- MB struggles keeping up with the reading anyway- never mind drunken text.(And if we are lucky Sal can do a phone in too if she can still work her Skype after a couple of bottles)

    Keep us posted Taffy- we can't live without the Radio Show.
