Well morning everyone to Runner's World first radio programme.

My co presenter (Crash Hamster) and I are going to keep you abreast with all that's happening in leafy Worcestershire.

Yes after what seems like 'days' of planning we've finally arrived.

Just to get you all in the mood we'll play some music. Now I know you'll all like some Country and Western so here's Dolly Parton with 'Stand by your Man'.............

bloody yokels;)

Well a call is flooding in already.

I'm sorry to say 'text' isn't working yet though........
15/08/2005 at 08:25
Well It appears my co-presenter has been delayed this morning. Probably feeding his chickens or something.

A bit of background to us: Crashie lives near the village of North Piddle, and I live near Lickey End. So we're both good old Worcestershire lads. We'd like to tell you where we are transmitting from but for two reasons we won't be letting you in on that secret. One is because it will cause a stir on the village green with all our 'groupies' turning up and also we ARE transmitting illegally............

...absolutely kk, thanks for the introduction!

Was out early this morning checking on the welfare of the bullocks in the bottom field!

I see we've had our first caller, that's Hippo in Upton Snodsbury, and speaking of Upton Snodsbury, don't forget that it's Pershore Dance Festival this week, which will involve performances both in and out of wellingtons...

North Piddle is humming this morning with the scandal of Scroggins' burglar alarm, which went off for over an hour last night...

Really, so is ith those wayward kids from the big city (Worcester) setting off alarms again.





p.s. The Village shop is now carrying Vintage Tractor magazine.

Hello kk and Crash. I'm a long time listener, first time caller. I'm on my tractor this morning and would like to hear something by the Wurzels.

Traffic news just in:-

The Vicar's wife's Minor 1000 has just stopped In Shell ford, a tin of WD40 has been called for to dry out the 'lectrics.
15/08/2005 at 08:57
As it happens Mister W I can oblige you there.

How about The Tractor Song from the Wurzels ( Available on EMI 'EMI2792')

Sit back and enjoy..

I drove my tractor to your haystack last night (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
I threw me pitchfork at your dog to keep quiet (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
Now something's telling me that you'll confide in me (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
Come on now darling, you've got something I need.

'Cos I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key,
Come on now, let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key.
(She made I laugh, ha-ha!)

I'll stick by you, I'll give you all that you need (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
We'll have twins and triplets, I'm a man built for speed (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
And you know I'll love you darling, so give me your hand (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
But the thing I want the most is all the acres of land.

'Cos I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key,
Come on now, let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key.
(Phwoar, she's a lovely bit of stuff and all.)

For seven long years I've been alone in this place (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
Pigs sleep in the kitchen, it's a proper disgrace (ooh-aah ooh-aah),
Now if I cleaned it up, would you change your mind? (ooh-aah ooh-aah)
I'll give up drinking scrumpy and that lager and lime.

'Cos I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key,
Come on now, let's get together in perfect harmony;
I've got twenty acres and you've got forty-three,
Now I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key.
(Who loves you baby?)

Weren't we a grand couple at that last Wurzel dance?
I wore brand new gaiters and me corduroy pants, ha-ha-haa!
In your new Sunday dress with your perfume smelling grand,
We had our photos took and usholding hands!

Now I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key,
Now that we mow past our hedges I think that you and me
Should stop this gallivanting, and will you marry me?
Now I've got a brand new combine harvester and I'll give you the key.
(Arr, you're a fine-looking woman and I can't wait to get me hands on your land, a-ha-ha!)

Cliffy many thanks for your contribution and we will get round to playing The Combine Harvester songin coming days..


Just a note about The Tractor Song;- Yet another Wurzels parody, this time of the Australian band The Mixtures' Pushbike Song, which reached no. 2 in the UK in 1971 (the Mixtures' song, that is - unfortunately the Wurzels' parody version flopped). On the compilation CD. .

But why I'm telling this I don't know: EVERYONE knew it anyway.

How strange that you should mention Shell Ford there. kk; I rode throught there on my Raleigh Shopper only the other night.

Coming the other way was a big-city type in his 'lifestyle' 4x4...but I got through first.

Honestly, these poseurs thinking that going through a ford is difficult- I managed it on my one-wheel drive.

A quick plug for the Coleford Sheepdiog Trials on Saturday...please bring any dog you feel may be guilty...

Shell Ford!

Never let it be said that we, at Radio Worcestershire, haven't got a complete and full knowledge of the roads in the area.....

Only recently Crashie made a very thorough examination of the road surface at a local ford.

Absolutely, kk!

Riding through Slea Ford, the back wheel of my Raleigh Shopper went completely sideways and I ended up in the water!

I also managed to bring off Mrs CH at the same time, titter ye not, gentle listeners...

Congratulations on the new enterprise fellow vigornians.

I would like some thing that is definetly not Country & Western - how about something by Guns 'n' Roses
15/08/2005 at 13:10
Well Charlie the problem is this:-

I thought we could manage just fine with the old "Dansette"..............

However wanted us to get into the 21st Century.


So we came to a compromise, and after many hours of searching picked a really high tech piece of equipment. At least that's what the guy saiod who sold it us from his car boot. He said it was so modern that would would struggle for a while to get some of the latest recordings.

So if anybody out there has got Guns 'n' Roses on 8 Track Stereo cartridges please let us know!!!!!
15/08/2005 at 13:13
Before anybody says anything Crashie and I didn't go to no posh Worcester school!!
15/08/2005 at 13:14
Hey Mr DJ - love the new station!

Putting in an early request for the 'Hot Date at 8' slot - saw a lover-ly young lady out on the Bath road yesterday. Blonde hair, jeans and a pig under her arm. So if anybody knows her, it's their wife, daughter, aunt, cousin, lover, or all of the above - please pass on my details!

I'd like another Wurzel's classic, 'Zip up thy zider' as a dedication to my new love...
15/08/2005 at 13:19
"wife, daughter, aunt, cousin, lover"

What's it worth and I'll arrange it!


I'll come up wth another Wurzels song soon but here's a classic C&W song that was on the all time worst C& W songs list:-

'Get Your Tongue Otta My Mouth 'Cause I'm Kissing You Goodbye'

(If no one believes me on this email me and I will forward the relevant web site. More songs like this to be broadcast soon)
15/08/2005 at 13:20
And Wickett that pig might just be one of my cousins........
