Here it is – ‘The Timewaster Phonecalls’…

As you know, I’m fond of the occasional silly phone call. Well, way back between around 1996 and 2000, I used to call up the brilliant London (and now national) radio station, LBC, and well, muck about.

I’ve posted a couple of these calls before, but decided to do a sort of album thingy of lots of the calls for you all to enjoy/not enjoy. Anyway, here they are…

Track Listing:

1. Putting Up Shelves
2. Knock Knock
3. Coughing
4. Lady Di
5. Lionel Blair’s Turkey Sandwich
6. Reading from a Gardening Book
7. Iceland
8. 29 Stone Man
9. Apricots & Peaches
10. Pieter Carp
11. Stung by a Wasp
12. Coronation Street’s Terry Duckworth
13. Onion Soup
