So, the two best suggestions I’ve heard all year both came from the radio –
the first was on Danny Baker’s Breakfast Show on BBC London earlier on in the year, in the run up to the Mayoral elections here in London. Danny was getting people to phone in with their suggestions for a platform on which to campaign. The finest suggestion came from a guy who rang in to say that if he was elected mayor, he’s make it so that whenever one of the new bendy buses in London went round a corner, it would play accordian music… :o)
The second came from a phone in show on BBC 5 Live, on the theme of what could do done to make Snooker more interesting. Someone rang in suggesting that they trained hamsters to play in goal across each of the pockets on the table!
Definitely two suggestions that would make the world a better place if they were adopted in 2005…
Soundtrack – Stevie Wonder, ‘Songs In The Key Of Life'; Strongbad, ‘Strongbad Sings and other type hits'; Finley Quaye, ‘Maverick A Strike’, and the songs for the wedding I played at yesterday…by
