Why start a broadcast in a good mood? John Robins doesn’t always, but it usually only takes a sandwich, some crisps, a coffee and some A-Grade badinage to get him out of his funk. Some lovely shame, legendary emails, a word from Jon Richardson and a shared beverage from Dan Gasser. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.

If you want to know how many Petite Filous John can fill of a night (and I know you do) then you’re in the right place. Panic normality is back, which makes for some squeamish listening. Tick Off A Taste corrupts the lad’s taste buds for another day and Elis shoe shames the money saving expert. All this plus the usual gems!

Episode 218 – Bloopers, Blunders & BACS

5/5/2018
More
It was everyone’s favourite type of show this week: The fabled “giddy” show. Classic. In a week where Elis James became the focus of many a PCD meme-maker, the lads took to the airwaves with panache and a firm eye on the blooper reel. John gives an impassioned monologue on education and Elis defends his favourite films. All this plus the Humblebrags, Paper Review and shame-a-plenty.

When the Welsh support lets you down, Elis James will just have to do: But he does a job. John smashed the Hammersmith Apollo to pieces on Thursday night, so there was plenty of reflecting to do. The lads also examine why John is so hard on himself & hold themselves to account in the face of a wackaging accusation. All this plus Humblebrags, The Light-Hearted Paper Review & plenty of E-mails! Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail. You’ve got to be on...

Elis James sends texts to John Robins in complete confidence: John Robins broadcasts them to the nation. It’s why this show just WORKS.

The dream team are back together! John made it through his ‘week of death’ on tour, with a few grey hairs to prove it. He got straight into the massive backlog of your emails, with more wackaging and even a wackager! We joined Danny Wallace for the start of his Snowbombing road trip (even if it was only in spirit) where he went head to head with Elis in Potato Potato, and a brand, spanking new Made Up Game was played - Masterchef or Master… Shouldn’t?

Episode 213 – Ed Gamble, Sad Spider & Potty Mouth John Motson

3/31/2018

Of course normal service will resume soon, but we do love a guest host. Friend of the show and all round legend Ed Gamble took up the mantle this week and hammer-smashed it out of the vibe park. The best bit is, even in John’s absence, there was no shortage of shame. Plus, it’s always a laugh to hear Elis having a nightmare with muscle-memory.

Before you listen to this week’s podcast…. Do you think Elis wins Made Up Games or not? He really does try his best. There were absolutely tons of E-mails to get through this week, so prepare yourself for a bumper pack of wackaging. There’s plenty of shame, bags of badinage and all the analysis of John’s appearance on Sunday Brunch last week. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.

Have you ever had to take your shoe for a shower?! Definitely avoid feeding ham to foxes. There’s no two ways about it – the lads were almost literally on fire in this week’s show. You had the cutting and clear tones of Johnny Robins and the soft and regional lilt of Elis “the pro” James. There were Humblebrags, an extremely engaging Made Up Game and enough top chat to cure John of all his ailments (skin, bladder & cheek).

3/3/2018

Getting underway this week with a gig/snow-based PSA on behalf of absent capable comedian, John Robins. In his seat, “your favourite comedian” James Acaster – but which famous ex-footballer did he meet in a service station earlier this week? PLUS, Elis sports a questionable hat, listener James is looking for “stock lines” that he can use in the gym, a “mystery texter” contacts the show and we throw in all the usual good stuff (Paper Review, Humblebrag, Made up Game) for absolutely nothing!...

So John’s off touring the world (UK) this week, but never fear as we were treated to James Acaster, who joined Elis to tackle a classic Humblebrag or two and play another one of your quallo Made Up Games. As well as talk of an obscene amount of Nakd bars (70?? Really?!) and a blast from the past with James’ Classic Scrape. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.

2/17/2018

Well what a palaver. We all remember Tick Tock Robins don’t we? It was so fraught that we didn’t even have time for Humblebrags! Imagine that!? John arrived eventually and it all came together nicely in the end. A brilliant show that gave Elis a chance to beat his commercial-indie-digital-radio wings on his own for a bit. There was a lovely paper review, a quallo set of E-mails and an update of Robins’ continuing tour! Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on...

Guys… Before you dive into this week’s podcast, please do be aware that it features a vape-less John Robins. Don’t worry – he’s got patches. There’s a bumper edition of Elis’ light-hearted paper review, E-mails, scarves, some chocolate brownie shame and a legally required disclaimer about vaping not being cool. All this plus the Humblebrags, a Made Up Game and do be aware; “it’s just a body. It’s just a dog’s body. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on...

Elis finally got his own back on his old teachers this week, and John revisited his education too – but, arguably, in a more sad way. The boys discovered a historical Humble Brag, John’s driving knowledge was put to the test, and we took another journey into the Shame Well. All this plus the usual – a Made Up Game, your emails, and Elis’ Light-Hearted Paper Review. Remember, you can get in touch on Saturday@radiox.co.uk (if you’re on e-mail.

1/27/2018

Poor, poor little Robins. He could hardly talk, bless him! Still dragged himself in thought didn’t he? John had tonsillitis this week so Elis did the lion’s share of the talking. There was still plenty to laugh about though; not least how Elis is getting on with his daughter’s potty training (spoiler: It’s not going well). There was also a smashing Made Up Game from listener Matt and it was right up the lads’ street. All this plus the usual Humblebrags, a Shame Well read by Elis and a...

This week, you’ll find out why dentists are basically like vets and why John felt like a thousand billion dollars! Lucky you! How bad is spitting? More to the point; how bad is graffiti? There’s a paper review, Prod V learns that a Tesco breakfast is a thing and John wins the ashes by switch-hitting Elis.

1/6/2018
More
You can’t have escaped that tirade of press coverage… It’s the least that can be expected when a man like Robins is stranded stateside and unable to broadcast. Elis soldiered boldly on though; with a stiff upper lip and a determined look in his eye. That was not before enlisting the help of esteemed friend of the show, Josh Widdicombe! Robins still managed to put his two cents in though and (once he was out of bed) joined in the fun from across the pond. A brilliant show with all the...
