Radio Worcestershire



  • not that i would be able to recieve it, the reception is rubbish round here
  • least it's not a TV station....would be worse then......
  • Jethro if you ask for a request you just get ignored:-(
  • Please send in requests tonight and I will search the archives for the morning.

    Jethro have you done your exercises?
  • BB was BD a Vigornian then?

    How would '40 years on and afar and asunder' suit him?
  • lol kk , I don't know that one but I'll soon pick it up.

    he was indeed from 9 through to 18
  • And in case no one knows it :-

    Forty years on, when afar and asunder
    Parted are those who are singing today,
    When you look back, and forgetfully wonder
    What you were like in your work and your play,
    Then, it may be, there will often come o'er you,
    Glimpses of notes like the catch of a song -
    Visions of boyhood shall float them before you,
    Echoes of dreamland shall bear them along,

    Follow up! Follow up! Follow up! Follow up! Follow up!
    Till the field ring again and again,
    With the tramp of the twenty-two men.
    Follow up! Follow up!

    Routs and discomfitures, rushes and rallies,
    Bases attempted, and rescued, and won,
    Strife without anger, and art without malice, -
    How will it seem to you, forty years on?
    Then, you will say, not a feverish minute
    Strained the weak heart and the wavering knee,
    Never the battle raged hottest, but in it,
    Neither the last nor the faintest, were we!


    O the great days, in the distance enchanted,
    Days of fresh air, in the rain and the sun,
    How we rejoiced as we struggled and panted -
    Hardly believable, forty years on!
    How we discoursed of them, one with another,
    Auguring triumph, or balancing fate,
    Loved the ally with the heart of a brother,
    Hated the foe with a playing at hate!


    Forty years on, growing older and older,
    Shorter in wind, as in memory long,
    Feeble of foot, and rheumatic of shoulder,
    What will it help you that once you were strong?
    God give us bases to guard or beleaguer,
    Games to play out, whether earnest or fun;
    Fights for the fearless, and goals for the eager,
    Twenty, and thirty, and forty years on!


    But usually only performed in them posh schools in the big cities loike Worcester.
  • <<marches behind, humming>>
  • weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllll

  • Plodding Hippo > Lily the Pink (Gin)

    "For she invented medicinal compound
    most efficacious in every case"

    It all fits.

    Medicine - Gin......................
  • I loved that song

    <<warbles along with Hippo>>
  • of COURSE it is about gin
  • You know hippo, our old favourite - The Wurzels - did a cover of that hit, only it was about William Shakespear. 'Willie the Shake' -

    "because he drank such, powerful potions,
    that's why they called him,
    the Immortal Bard..."
  • Little competition of the day:-

    What is the county town of Worcestershire?

    Is it:-

    A/ Skelmersdale

    B/ Worcester

    C/ Truro

    The winner whose name will be drawn out of the hat gets to spend a week with Keith Chegwin!
  • i can find it on DAB, wot channel number is this station?
  • Jethro: just bang the top of the set and wiggle the aerial.
  • Well goooood morning Worcestershire!

    Good to see Jethro has found our little pirate operation! We know the signal is a little in and out, but who can resist a little in and out from time to time, eh listeners? (old Two Ronnies material really IS making a comeback on Radio Worcestershire :o))

    kk blames his neighbour Mrs Marconi and her line prop...

    The hot news is that it's Ombersley village fete on Bank Holiday Monday and Throckmoroton rural revels on Saturday of Bank Holiday weekend...sounds like that's my long weekend sorted!

    And now an 8 track for Mr and Mrs Jethro, it's Kenny and Metallica with a duet version of 'The Bump'
  • Laughed!

    I nearly fell off the gate I was sitting last night.

    Some bloke comes running, puffing past the lane by the farm wearing this lardy dah fancy clothing.

    I said "where'd you get that and does your wife know your wearing it?"

    He said he bought it in a shop in Worcester. Well I thought I'd seen and heard everything, but I reckon Worcestor is becoming more degenerate by the day. Fancy someone selling jessies clothing like that for running in,and to blokes!

    What's the world coming to?
  • Crashie!

    Sheep again?
  • Whoops sorry!

    Sleep I meant to say!
  • Hello Radio Worcestershire. Please could you play Motorhead's version of that Dana classic "All Kinds of Everything"? I'd like to dedicate it to my sister and my wife. Her name's Peggy!
  • I have the 8 track right here, Mr W; in fact we'll make it a double header with Led Zeppelin's version of 'Jake the Peg'
  • No time for sheep today, kk, though we'll have to see what Throckmorton brings ;o)

    Been out for a jaunt on the Raleigh Shopper to the swim in poo, feeling as sweaty as a neighbour's wellington now!
  • Phew!
    I know your neighbour.....
  • Talking of Led Zep,

    Have you seen the copy of Rolf Harris's cover version of Stairway to Heaven?
  • Ah, one of the all-time greats, kk...

    Right, I'm leaving the studio for a while for a shower and a trip to the big city; I'll leave you with that fine local group Genesis and AbacAb Lench...
  • Don't go going into them shops that sell that jessies clothing I mentioned ealier.

    And bring me back a pint.....
  • I'll obtain a keg of Scrunge's XXXXX Cobblerwobbler while I'm there, kk :o)
  • A little tune for Crashie on his trip into the big smoke - the Beastie Boys classic "No Sheep till Broad Green"

    (KK? no relation to the Judas Priest guitarist?)
