THE JOHN DREDGE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SHOW - PROGRAMME 6

This week's indie comedy special includes the new single by Fractious Nit and an interview with pop twinnock Rex Twix.


Madonna and Morrissey (pictured above wearing masks of each other in a jolly little jape) will be arguing in the kitchen, and there's another mention of New Malden as well as an uncanny reference to steam engines.

We're still looking for people to take part in our Get in the Sideboard with a Crazed Lion feature, so do contact us on this number.

There's also the first episode of an amazing new science fiction adventure serial, so it's very unfortunate that this is the last programme of the series.

THE JOHN DREDGE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SHOW - PROGRAMME 5

The memories come flying back, swoop down, and steal all my fish...

On this week's programme, there's a very special interview which we can't tell you too much about because we've forgotten who it's with.

Acclaimed non-Frinton-based actress Anna Emerson will also be saying several words, and guest star Reg Chimpolomew will be doing very little.

There's also the ongoing adventures of Basil the Cylinder, the answer's to last week's holdall-based quiz, and a whole host of other fabulous things which we've also forgotten about.

THE JOHN DREDGE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SHOW - PROGRAMME 4

On this week's show, you’ll not only hear a combine harvester but also a specially-built giant catapult.

Guests include acclaimed actors Greg Haiste and Anna Worthington, as well as the less acclaimed Crazy Eric and Leonard Aircraft.

There's extensive information about shoe shop logistics, and a feature on bark.

Wrong sort of Bach.

Wrong again.

Correct.

Plus: will the gasman read the meter in time?

The programme also comes with a free hat stand for all your hat standing needs. Lucky you.

IN HONOUR OF THE DIAMOND JUBBLY

It's not even noon here at 404 Towers by the banks of the smelly Thames, where - from one look at the bunting alone - the locals seem to think America is part of the Commonwealth.

After having tossed and turned all night wondering what the constitutional status would have been if Her Majesty had died in her sleep overnight and suffered a rude awakening from cacophonous clashing ear-bleeding versions of Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory, and what sounded like a mezzo-soprano choking on a chicken bone, not to mention all the flamin' helicopters, we're already sick of the jubilee and wish we could just have an ordinary quiet Sunday watching that repeat of Foyle's War on ITV3.

However, we realize that, as a British podcast, our listeners expect at least something vaguely Jubilee-related on this most day of days, so here it is: the latest instalment from Haiste & Lawrence's Wills & Kate video series.

In fact, the reason for posting this is not so much anything to do with the jubilee but everything to do with this week's edition of John Dredge's Nothing to Do with Anything Show, in which Greg Haiste takes a featured guest star role. It's on the feed from Wednesday.
