Night Owls Nook

For all you Night Owls out there...its the Radio NBN Pfffone In Show!

There have been many occasions, usually through an inability to sleep, that I've ended up turning the radio on to listen to one of those late night phone in shows. Quite often while I've been at the boat on my own.

Your host from now until the wee hours Silent Simon Sloth.

At a certain point in the evening, the radio seems to deviate from sanity and normal transmission and the 'special people' come out to play. The host is normally some whispering, gravel throated 'has been'  Butlins Red Coat that's been elevated from euthanizing NHS patients on Hospital Radio to late night local radio.

Our special guest tonight is local councillor Gladys Dogthrottle of Yarmouth here to talk about the state of the bins but who's just finished knitting a selection of Beechams Pills through the ages from cat hair. Any questions for Gladys...the number coming up...

The guest is usually incredibly boring but halfway through the interview turns out to be completely insane. The last one I heard ran the local sewing machine shop...but in his spare time monitored space debris falling on Thetford which was being used by aliens as a staging post for invasion. Thetford?

...right after this!

The first track comes on...usually The Carpenters or some other 1970's dross designed to keep the listeners calm until the morphine or mogadon takes effect.

Right time for our first caller. Who's on line one?
I think these bins are rubbish get it get it?

The first few callers are your regular drunks just back from the boozer. But then...

Hello line two?
Oh Simon it's me your greatest fan Camille. Camille Toe of Horning, I've just made some cocoa and I'm snuggled up in...

...the 'special people' crawl out of the woodwork and onto the airwaves!

...bed wearing...
Yes Camille but do you have a question for Gladys?
Well yes, I'm knitting dolls of the Broads Authority Chief Executive using nasal hair, does Gladys have any tips?

Now quite recently I've noticed a number of NBN members using the forum in the wee small hours...Iain and Eric for example...and I was wondering...do you have any questions for Gladys? :naughty:

I am tempted to answer as I do the phone calls

"we hear you have been involved in an accident"

"how did you know? - how soon can you get the clean underwear to me"

usually gets them off the line

Iain, Hang your head in shame sir, that comment is not worthy of you.

I have met Tim and had several beers with him, and just in case anybody  is in any doubt, inspite of what Iain said Tim does have a head. Not necessarily a good one, I'll give you that, but he does have one.

I'll have you know when a young, ever so camp, shop assistant announced to my other half Ellie that he was going 'platinum' grey every customer in the queue all turned to look at me.
"Charming!" I said.
"Oh you're a silver fox!" a young WPC told me fluffing my ego.
"More like a knackered badger" said Ellie bringing me crashing back to reality!

Lulling myself to sleep tonight with a soothing selection from Iron Maiden, I may catch you later.

I sort of like the medieval sleep pattern, of early to bed then a short awake interval, followed by more sleep.

Dear Felicity,

If I order a bride, can you guarantee that she will be trained by you so that she can iron my jeans and put a crease right down the middle.

ps... will she arrive by Puffin, or will I have to pick her up from the train station...

...so that was the Martham Ladies Over Seventies Nude Madrigal Society singing their version of 'The Pushbike Song' to the tune of Hey Nonny Nonny Make Mine a Pint. I'd like to welcome our guest Felicity Bermfloguh...
I'm sorry Simon it's Baumflaugh pronounced Bumfluff
Yes Sorry Felicity Bumfluff who's started a mail order bride company from her garden shed in Thurne.

I dunno where the sense of humour comes from. It could be my mother's doing...she was slightly 'off the wall'. Some of it could be the strokes which do mean quite a bit of

It does mean my sleep patterns are all over the place and have been ever since. Oddly when I'm at home I tend to push and work myself until I keel over with exhaustion. When I'm on the boat however like Grendel I fall into a pattern of going to bed when it's dark and getting up with the sun...even when the sun sets in the middle of the afternoon.

We have messages from Yorkshire Felicity you are a popular lady. So pelicans Felicity...
Oh quite easy to capture they have specific crossing places just be sure its a pelican crossing we don't want to be trampled to death by stripey horse do we?

As to what I'm on at the minute...pure relief my boat is now going to be sorted out!

We have a caller on line three, Reg Toe? Any relation to Camille?
I'm her husband...I just wanted to say no mail order for me. I met my dearest on Yarmouth beach. She was feeding the seagulls. Breast feeding she was...
Thank you Reg time for some music The Martham ladies over Seventies Nude Madrigal Society with 'Oops up side your head' to the tune of Fol diddle in the springtime.

Well that and a nice Rioja. Of course being a complete idiot helps!
