"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: idunnosomename on March 06, 2021, 12:20:29 AMwhen did they coin the "MY WIFE" thing? was it XFM? it reminds me of when people would /not so casually/ mention their girlfriends on internet message boards c. early 2000s and it became a bit of a joke. or a MEME as we'd say now. because we live in an idiot future
Quote from: icehaven on March 06, 2021, 04:21:26 PMIt was on one of the A&J 6 music podcasts from roughly around 2010/2011, Adam was talking about his wife always losing her keys or something, and how he'd told her she should always leave them in the same place, and he started the robot voice to emphasise how he'd realised how dull and practical he sounded dispensing sensible but boring advice, which had them both in hysterics.
Quote from: popcorn on March 06, 2021, 03:44:37 PMYour work was appreciated! Do you know why some episodes still had music in them, and some of them seemed to cut out in different ways (like some faded in/out, some just sliced out, etc)? Not bashing, just genuinely curious, I got the feeling different people had done them. I imagined a team of coordinated nerds serving the community.
Quote from: Mobbd on March 06, 2021, 12:22:06 PMI do love the time machine capabilities of podcasts. I have lots of memories of where I was when I first listened to a particular pod. It really is evocative, isn't it?

Quote from: Retinend on March 06, 2021, 03:11:16 PMWhile we are being nostalgic, I was the person on the "speeding on the needlebliss" blog site recording and editing the 6Music episodes to remove the music. It seems to have disappeared from the internet.
Quote from: Mobbd on March 06, 2021, 05:33:06 PMI do not believe he pays guests. If anything, they would pay him since they're often on a promotional junket to sell a book or similar. T&D approached Adam so I doubt money was involved at all in their case.

Quote from: icehaven on March 06, 2021, 08:01:35 PMIt was! As others have said about podcasts being incredibly nostalgic, I can remember the exact shop I was walking past on my way home from work during that bit, and I was giggling like a prat too.

As others have said about podcasts being incredibly nostalgic, I can remember the exact shop I was walking past on my way home from work during that bit, and I was giggling like a prat too. Listening to the two of them cracking up together is still one of my favourite things. Doesn't narrow it down much I'm afraid but the episode is on BBC Sounds (that's where I got it from recently) Adam also references it in one of his podcasts from about 2018ish.
QuoteThe Adam & Edith era was a bit odd. Never felt they quite meshed together and after the initial run of episodes Adam was gone and it was relaunched as an Edith solo show (which I never bothered listening to tbh).
Quote from: Sean Ymphs on March 07, 2021, 09:43:55 PMThere were also the two shows that Adam guest-hosted on Radio 2 with Liza Tarbuck. The first one went quite well I seem to remember. The second one had the Paul Weller interview...
Quote from: Avril Lavigne on March 08, 2021, 12:33:26 AMIf anyone has a link to that Weller interview I'd greatly appreciate it; over my years of following Buxton's every move it's taken on an almost mythological status.
Quote from: Pranet on March 07, 2021, 07:58:51 PMThere were high points. To continue the theme, I remember being in Swindon library unable to stop myself laughing out loud at Adam's reaction to Kate Winslet's husband changing his name to Ted Rockandroll.
Quote from: bobloblaw on March 08, 2021, 12:24:34 PMOn an enforced walk to work due to a tube strike, I remember convulsing in the street listening to their hysterics as they ripped Nicholas Cage's Irish accent in National Treasure to pieces. I still can't hear the word 'whiskey' in any other voice
Quote from: TommyTurnips on March 08, 2021, 07:06:04 AMThat would be amazing! I'd love to hear that.Another bit I would love to hear is the bit from their Glastonbury coverage with Rolf Harris. Adam talked about it on an early Richard Herring podcast. Him and Joe were ordered to interview Rolf Harris. So they did an awkward interview and got him to do a painting while he made his strange panting noises that he does. Rolf leaves and Joe says "there goes Rolf Harris. He seems a bit autistic doesn't he?". It turned out that Rolf was listening on a monitor on the other side of the grounds and demanded an apology or else he would never do anymore work for the BBC. To hear the raw footage from that would be a joy.
