No Episode Tonight

[Mr Black] couldn’t make it for our third summer edition, unfortunately.

Sorry to get your hopes up.

[Mr Black] had a very busy time towards the end of last year and has promised us that a catch-up in the coming months will make up for it.

I certainly hope so and I’m sure you will too.

Next week our regularly scheduled Boxcutters returns.

And for those who missed out, why don’t you go back and listen to our interview with Pete Smith from last year to tide you over until then.

Lots of love,



Just watched the first ep of SKINS the new UK comedy from the writers of Shameless and stuff. I thought it was great. Loads of fun and very funny.

Anybody else see it?

Screening 10pm Mondays for the next 8 weeks.

Ernie & Bert meets The Sopranos… (finally)

So what do you get if you cross Ernie and Bert and the Sopranos?

Pure gold.

Alex Trebek has suffered a heart attack.

My favourite game show host is in hospital, reports ET Online:

ET breaks news that ALEX TREBEK has been hospitalized.

A rep for “Jeopardy” tells ET Alex suffered a minor heart attack last night at his home. He was with his wife, JEAN, who is currently by his side at the hospital, where is is said to be resting comfortably.

Let’s hope he gets much better soon.

Good news everybody
