Hello listeners, while this festive season is mostly about consumerism (or so my reading of 21st century history teaches me) it is also about sharing special moments with your nearest and dearest. Well, I don’t have any of those so I thought I’d share a special holiday recording with you.
So sit back, grab a dry sherry and a Blamco mince pie and consider making just three small payments of 1999 caps to treat you or a loved one/threatening raider gang to the ENTIRE WVR CHRISTMAS CATALOGUE!!!! (THAT’S OVER 3000 SONGS!!! (THAT’S PRACTICALLY FREE , CHEAP AS CHIPS))
I don’t know if you’ve heard this at all in my recent broadcasts but the Westies are happening and I’m so excited! I’ve been a little obsessed with running it this year, so much so I checked out the archives and found this amazing image and, with a seamless amendment from Mr. Wigglesworth, I’m ready to share it with you all.
The trophy, I will admit, is not exactly as shiny as it is in the images but that’s what a couple of hundred years does to any object, let alone a shiny gold plated doorstop symbol of broadcasting accomplishment.
In fact, I like to think of it like the ashes that would be traded between the old British baseball teams of home. Respected, prestigious and made of terracotta.
