Preshaah FM 10

This week's show was emotional for many reasons, tears, ties, times changing?

Summer certainly felt like it was back in many ways after the Shoreditch festival and a few late night late sun sets ..

We also see about a dozen Heart/Hit Music stations merged into 15 and the commercial radio airwaves get that bit duller.

My week newscasting has refelcted the digital economy bill - economising radio for? I was reading news across 4 separate stations economising the Adventure group to the MAX.

Grand tunes as ever

Eduardo Off

I was slightly pleased to hear the news Eduardo was being linked with moves away from Arsenal, when he didn't travel with the team to Austria the impending deals were almost sealed.

Wasn't until last night when I really thought about his record with us, how exciting and fresh he was, scoring for fun - the game against Everton he played up front on his own and annihilated them!

I remember the Birmingham game so clearing, watching it with Lisa in my flat in Whitechapel, the 15min delay, the Clichy pen in the last minute and big Willy crying. We were top of the league then and looked closer then ever to re-claiming our title!

I checked on his progress almost daly at stages hoping and willing him to get back and was delighted to see him walking, running and training again!

There were brief flashes against Burnley in the FA Cup and a few other moments when he looked to be back but a plague of other injuries meant he struggled to get back his early form.

The Celtic Penalty Bollox saga that ensued at the start of last season I think did more lasting damage than fucking Martin Taylor, after the 2 footed Uefa Fifa blow he never did really recover.

The headder against West Ham last season was a brief glimps of his talent and I hope he plays with head and heart at Shaktar and we see him really become the player he so nearly did for The Arsenal.

July for an Eye

Feeling a bit like summer was over this week? The weather was a bit wack and was just a bit wind swept by things.

The show perked me up though with sounds from Tokyo Police Club, Bombay Bicycle, They are Scientists, Metric, The Doors and more.

Went to the Shoreditch festival afterwards and judged a dog show which also yelped.

Dem Beats

Was going to check out Bob Fossil - Rich Fulcher's new show Elenor the Tour Whore at the Udderbelly on the Southbank.

Was going to go to the Saatchi gallery, thought it was near the eye but its actually in Victoria so had a wander and some munch instead.

The skate boarders were pretty hip but these Kats smashed it, Booooom!

David Seaman

The Atlantic 75 lifeboat was launched from the pier head at approx 2.15pm this afternoon in force 8, gusting to force 9 south westerly winds and turbulent seas to a 27ft sailing cruiser that had run aground on the south side of The Chapman Sands, East of Canvey.

That's the latest from the RNLI here @ Southend and I'm suppose to be newscasting?

I must say the gusty gales that've whipped the weather this week have made working by the seaside Soo much fun! Never seen it so blustery and choppy, really looks dangerous out there, when the tide comes in it covers the whole beach and waves are blowing onto cars!!!!

I got the train so no worries for my KA"
