    Gardening on radio

    Has anyone ever listened to this on the Jeremy Vine show? Some eccentric old Welsh guy called Terry comes on and proceeds to do some gardening whilst talking away describing what heís doing. Itís the best thing on the radio. It must be what it was like before TVs came along.

    It's on every month I think, Terry from the Rhondda valley,,,, although some of the info is interesting for gardeners, I reckon it's a bit of a pi$$ take.
    The other day they were talking about plastic in supermarkets and this guy phoned up saying he invented stackable boxes made of plywood (Russian doll style) that he'd place in his trolley, fill with shopping then place in the car. Jeremy signed off quite straight faced thanking him for an amazing idea, the guy had invented "the box",,,,

    I donít know if itís true or not but I heard his brother Tim telling a story about a phone in topic where Jeremy asked people to phone in if they were scared of their own voice.

    It reminds me of a story I heard about the olden days of radio. There was a darts champion who would throw darts from 501 down. There would be a gap between throws for you to take your turn. If you beat him there was no prize, you could just say you beat the champ. Fabulous stuff.

    Even though TVs have now come along, some things are still better on daytime radio than on daytime TV.
