Little Billy from the Bradshaws which is part of the late show has asked me to check out his website and tell you all about it. You dont need me to do that as you can find it all out for yourself by taking a look at www.thebradshaws.biz and when you sign that guest book then tell them I sent you.
As requested by a few people "Why Dont I publish what the topics of discussion are for this weeks late night debate." Good question. The answer is that topics are not always thought up well in advance, however I do get lots of feedback on various issues and do use them on the show from time to time.
I will endeavour to do list the topics here and you can leave your comments for broadcast on the show.
WE LOOK AT TV PROGRAMMES AND ASK DO YOU PREFER THE MODERN DAY PROGRAMMS OR THE OLDIES FROM THE 70S AND 80S.
THIS WEEK I’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH COMPANIES WHERE I HAVE BEEN PUT ON HOLD FOR A LONG TIME AND TRANSFERRED TO THE WRONG DEPARTMENT SO LETS HEAR YOUR EXPERIENCES OF CALL CENTRES
AND FINALLY WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE CENSUS AND ASK IF IT SHOULD BE SCRAPPED OR NOT.

There I was sat in the studio preesenting my late night show tonight when around 12.10am when an alarm got my attention. Turns out the fire alarm had triggered and after looking around the building and finding nothing and doing all the usual like making sure fire doors are shut I decided that it was time to vacate the building (well I was persuaded by a fire officer).
Anyway I left the building and even though it wasn't on fire, the alarm system is linked to all the buildings in the complex and it turned out to be a false alarm triggered in another building.
The fire officer would not let me return to the studio until everything had been checked and the alarms reset and luckily in this world of computerisation that we live in, all I had to do was hit one button (like a panic button) and that kept the radio station on air with random music until the situation was resolved.
What an eventful night it turned out to be. Very busy on the last night phone in and debate and then the fire alarm. Dont want too many of these on my show.
Still, it did allow me to put into practice what we had been taught at fire training at a staff meeting... Now then, where did I put that extinguisher:)

Its August and starting tomorrow (4th) everything is back to normal. The Bradshaws return along with the website review of the day and the hits and headlines as well as the Big Jukebox between midnight and 1am.
As part of the show involves promoting local talent then I feel its only right to mention the upcoming "Barrow Live" event which will be held in the town square in Barrow and involves quite a few bands playing. A full list will be published nearer the time. Tickets are £5 and the date for the event is Bank Holiday Sunday 24th August 2008
From 10pm its the retro dance party playing the best of the 60s 70s 80s and 90s. Due to heavy demand and a very busy schedule then if you want your favourite tune or a mention on this show then please email me in advance to the usual address
