Yesterday, I watched 5 episodes of Come Dine with Me. It was in Cardiff. And they played a bit of You Stole The Sun From My Heart in one episode, and a bit of Motorcycle Emptiness in another episode.

That's brilliant. If you're going to get it wrong, that is the way to do it.

Bit off topic but I find it weird that the beeb are even allowed to promote the use of twitter and facebook all the time... seems counter to all their charter rules and supposed impartiality etc. But woe betide Graham Norton wearing a charity ribbon or the bloke off Masterchef doing potato ads...!

Imagine if they read out comments from forums instead. Admittedly they wouldn't have a lot to go on here recently but still...

Hope your bad day has improved!

Unless I missed it, I'm surprised that Nicky et all haven't really commented on this year's "populist" political shenanigans from around the world (Brexit, Trump, Duterte, etc.).

Same during 9/11. Big on talking politics, short on walking it. Often just not even talking it.

They've never claimed to walk anything, go see chris martin or bono if you want to hear some token politics that just pisses everyone off. Besides, they do talk politics constantly, just not when it's fashionable to do so, for which i am grateful.

So they should walk it like they don't talk it?


Not sure why you bring up 9/11 so often... You got Rendition and Imperial Bodybags....
