06:33 Wednesday Cheesy Song

06:36 Opening Link Chris greets everyone good morning and already there are mic problems. It turns out to be Dom’s mic even though he just read the news without any problems. The problem sounds like Dom is outside of the roof in the wind. Dave suggests it would be good to use when reading the weather.

06:38 Chris talks about his recording of Quiz Night last night which all the team, minus Matt Fincham, attended. Dom and Dave met at the local pub very early on to make sure they made their call time. The rest of the team got there a bit later. Aled is off the drink because he is trying to lose weight for his beach holiday in August. Chris is on Day 10 of no drink. Tina thinks ten days is impressive. Dom appears to have fixed his microphone by hitting it. Chris talks about how someone told him that a month off drink is when things start getting better.

06:44 Chris talks about his naps between rehearsals for Quiz Night. Dave says he thinks he managed to power-nap this week. Chris talks about the other celebrities he meets whilst recording at The London Studios which include the Loose Women, Peter Andre and Keith Lemon. Aled shares how, despite loving attention, gets embarrassed when singled out at the Quiz Night recordings. The team talk about America Ferrera who plays Ugly Betty but is neither ugly nor Betty.

06:49 Chris talks about how his life is not very rock and roll after he gets home. The team talk about crackers. Whilst putting the bins out last night, Chris slipped and fell on his back. Aled checks it out to find a big bruise.

06:54 Chris has had a lot of positive comments about Adele’s interview yesterday and her meeting with Fake Adele. Dom is still relieved from finding out Aled and Matt wound him up over Adele being annoyed over Fake Adele. There is a video of the two meeting online. Dom thinks its his best impression, next to Jools Holland. Aled shows a photo which someone sent in of Dom’s face on Adele’s body which is now the new profile photo for Fake Adele.

06:57 Back to today’s show, Eddie Izzard is coming in to talk about his Laughs in the Park comedy gig at St Albans. Aled doesn’t know what Eddie is like because of a less than positive encounter with him when he was coming out of an airplane toilet.

07:00 Dom talks about how at a previous radio job, whilst reading the news, a DJ would make sound effects with his mouth in between news stories. Dave wants to try it out during the sports news.

07:06 The team think the week is going by quick. Chris asks what Eddie Izzard is in to promote which is his comedy festival at St Albans and a three month run of French comedy gigs which he has just completed. Chris and Dom have a man-crush on him. Chris talks about Eddie’s early gigs on video which Chris bought and comments on how his transvestite act has grown over time. Dave defines the difference between a stalker and a keen fan...

07:10 Dave wants to learn some French. Chris thinks Eddie Izzard looks like Keith Lemon in one of his DVD covers. Dave thinks he looks like Chris in one of his promotional photos. Chris tries to find out if he’s tweeted this morning yet, he has but only trying to sell tickets.

Example - Changed The Way You Kissed Me

07:21 Celebrity Raspberry Gavin is today’s contestant who is shocked to be on the show. Gavin is from Essex and is a car salesman. Gavin guesses Dean Gaffney but he is wrong (because it’s Celebrity Raspberry).

07:29 The team try to guess clues on who the Celebrity Raspberry-blower is. The celebrity has done comedy-acting, is famous for something else, is not under the age of 30 but hasn’t done stand-up comedy. Chris thinks he knows who it is so Aled gives a bonus clue. Aled asks Chris how cool he thinks the celebrity is, Chris thinks 7 out of 10, so Aled thinks he must have it wrong. Aled thinks this celebrity is very cool but also thinks Dean Gaffney is so he retracts the question.

07:53 Chris checks in on how Fake Adele is doing on Twitter. She already has over 5,000 followers. Dave likes the profile photo. There are already some fake Fake Adele accounts. Chris wants the team to be able to post to the account. Aled can install it on their ‘modern phones’ but not for Dom who has a ‘catching-up phone’.

Chase & Status and Tinie Tempah - Hitz
Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar

09:45 Carpark Catchphrase Roy Walker is wondering what T in the Park is. On Line 1 is Lorna from Leicester who has been sorting out a trip to London for some questionable work experience. On Line 2 is James from Doncaster who has been sitting out in the sun without any cream on, not even salad cream.

Carpark catchphrase 1: Mr Fish in Peterborough readying for a parachute jump to cure his fear of spiders. The instructor has told him the best way to land is to be running. James beeps in first with the correct answer ‘Hit the ground running’!

Carpark catchphrase 2: Mr Fish is annoyed that he lost money over the David Haye fight so he’s gone back to the bookies to try win money on the horses. However if he gets caught there during office hours he’ll be in a lot of trouble. Lorna beeps in first with the answer ‘Safe bet’ but it’s not the right answer. Mr Fish has had some sneaky advice off a friend who has told him to go over the road and hide his betting slips in a hedge. Lorna beeps in again with ‘Hedge your bets’ which is the right answer! It’s one a piece so it’s all to play for.

Carpark catchphrase 3: Mr and Mrs Fish are in Transylvania near the home of the Cheeky Girls and Count Dracula. Count Dracula is quite nice, not very scary but a bit of a pest. Mr Fish sees Count Dracula approaching the house so hides under the window, pretending to be out. Mrs Fish sees him and asks him what he’s doing, he replies he’s out because of the Count. James beeps in with the answer ‘Out for the count’ which is correct making him the winner!

The team have words of advice for Lorna on her trip to London and say goodbye. James is back tomorrow as the new champion of Carpark Catchphrase.

10:00 End of the show
