Well… there you go then matey


Today was the last day of the festival so our broadcast finished about 2 hours ago.

Today has been a rocker. I woke up and got stung by some little fucking twat in my shoe. To be fair i was in it’s territory (In a field in Cheltenham). I squashed it mainly because it scared me and insects don’t usually bite me and it was spooky. I think i woke up with shock this morning too. I was cold, not just normal cold, i mean sick cold. Really horrible shaky so i put my coat on, I still kind of feel cold in a way. its like im a bit shivery inside.
I had a bit of a rest and then helped Robin bring the tent down. We blitzed that one. I was ace at getting the tent in the bag. Boom. 
We went to the studio for Robin to do his show but i was feeling really rubbish about lots of things. I think i needed some alone time anyway (I do this sometimes) and probably could do with some sleep. All my internals were achy after tearing it up at the headphones disco last night. I didn’t stop dancing at all. So with the tiredness and feeling ill i had lots of things in my brain that needed extinguishing, like the songs i couldn’t get out my head, being worried about silly things and needed lots of water, some lunch. the plan was to recover and come back later for the show. On the way back i felt really weak. I think i was going to spew the world out, or crawl home like i was missing in a desert. 
I got “home” and put a film on that i was going to fall asleep to but it was so interesting i stayed up. It was about Joe Meek and i got too into it, which resulted in some weird dreams including riding on busses and a manager who had offered me cakes as a trademark screwjob trait. This wasnt good sleeping material so have i got news for you was popped on.
When i re-woke i finished Have i got news for you and then made my way back to the festival. not much happened after that. Pete Harper (From bands Danny and the bachelors and Thrill Collins) repeated my name a number of times again (Which im pretty sure has something to do with the X-factor) and interviewed the rest of them.
I then went to the final show of Wychwood 87.7 FM where it was Dan VS Alex. 
I was thinking about sticking around for the headphone disco but i was feeling a bit ill. I went back and walked. back. So now im just laying on the bed. it hurts to move, but i should eat something and sleep. If i could discribe today in weather form – dry but cloudy with patches of rain which clear up near the end of the day.

Im feeling a bit down though at the moment. I’m not sure why, its not to do with the radio ending. But its probably because i want sleep. I’m sure ill be better in the morning. im all cold again now, so im gona wrap myself in everything. Night yo!

R.o.b.i.n.s p.i.s.s.e.d.o.f.f


so just got bk from the headphone disco and were talking about worms. the can shall not be opened. but its obvious robin is not a happy chappy.hopefully after the stress of the tent being brought down he will b ok. this swiftly moved on from talking to him about worms and cans to talking to my self then not at talking all because i wasnt listening to myself. on the plus side i saw the girl who lost her phone that i found – Racheal. and another who was dancing around with me (jo) who said she enjoyed my dancing hehe. any negative comments that may have been mentioned by anyone else were like water off a ducks back because i had a good time. i kinda was a bit down today but i had a sleep and woke up energetic. i was havning a down moment.
anyway i am gona try n sleep and try and be more bareable to my friend in the morning. just remember… its christmas. (it is cause the dj played 2 xmas songs. proof!)

wychwood. iphone funtimes yay!


ok so today has been pretty cool. i got up late and shud hav been at wychwood about 1 but got there at 2 ish as i was finding beds to use for the show. i got to the festival and met robin where we (mostly him) put the tent up. this was rather complicated because the wind was a fucking prick. after an hour and a half we completed the build and walked into town. we got back to camp and on the way to see punk innovators ‘the dammed’ which robin loved, i saw a big bubble and some muppet hats whick are fucking amazing. anyway we saw the dammed however my sensitive hearing became a problem and after moving once already i was feeling a bit crap so after. i needed an adult to confide in because i was feeling a bit down… but i dunno why.
i went to the radio studio to regain my hearing and spoke to sam and knocked around the studio til robin showed up. we saw some comedy and was the joined by jelmer.
we decided to call it a day but check out the headphone disco on the way back. we thought it seemed cool but didnt go in. i needed a piss so went to the toilet. jelmer asked if there was a light in there and said it was daft. i pondered over this thought while pissing and i saw a light – someones iphone!
it was ringing so answered it (someone called sarahi think) and said id found the phone. i met the person whos phone it was and she offered me a drink. robin at this point had just got out the bog and was un aware what happened and all of a sudden him and jelmer was being whisked off for a drink. (we saw tone station manager robbie at this point who said something but cant remember) and i managed to plug our show :p.  the girl whos phone it was took us into the headphone disco and got me robin and jelmer a drink. she was rly nice :-).
so we had the one and jelmer had to go. our show is at 10am so we were all gona go. but robin and i was havin fun with the music. i got a cider and carried on. then we had more drink and danced more till slowly we broke out into full on dancing. we saw te girl again and had a chat about it was adictive and carried on dancing. it got to 1.30 when we decided it was time to go… and danced about to house of pains jump around just as we left. the tent was still standing when we got back so got in.
what will happen tomorrow? hmmmm
