Snow far so good

Was loving being @ Waterloo on Saturday as the arctic heavens opened and a delicious dusting hit the big city.

It was chaos all round - my train didnt have a driver, kids separated from parents, dog bowls frozen an I was heading 10 miles out into the wilderness to battle it all!

Twitter had a constant pitter patter of football cancellations and every stop I went past the snow was deeper and heavier!

Soooo exciting though, will I get there? Will I ever get back? The camera struggled to reveal the true terror!

Shoreditch FM Launch

4 .... 3..... 2 ..... 1 ....... Drop the Preshaah!

On a cold and wet December day in November - the 24th 10:00 a new innovative explosion hit the airwaves - Shoreditch Radio.

Broadcasting from the Haggerston Hotel, Del, Rax and producer Quentin fired up the furnaces and got the station global

The first song to hit the airwaves - Starry Eyed 'Ellie Goulding' (Russ Chimes Remix)
The man pressing the buttons was yours truly! With a sound and a show not dis-similar to Preshaah FM - The Killing Moon blasted Shoreditch Radio into orbit with me desperately clinging onto the mic stand for comfort.

Nervous, stuttery and starry eyed It was a delight to rocket the station into the moonlight.

This was THE show to kick it all off

Working @ Sky News Radio this Saturday on the sports desk. Was in on Tuesday for a little refresher and this were the 1st story I wrote and its gone straight to air with 0 edits!

Ipswich captain David Norris admits his side are involved in a Championship relegation battle after defeat to bottom side Preston last weekend.

Roy Keane's men lie in 18th, and they're just 3 points off the drop zone.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Norris is expecting a rocky road ahead.

I also made the cut.

West London Derby - Late Show

Slightly half hearted show this week - Dan only made it for half the show!

I opened in faltering fashion and tried as best I could to battle on but it was incredibly 1 sided.

Previewed the afternoons action and seamlessly slipped into Newcastle Chris Houghton sacking.

Giggles was better behaved this week but that isn't saying much as studio Etiquette goes.

2011 will see a revitalised West London Derby, we're back January 15 as I'm at Sky for FA Cup 3rd round and Dan is playing for FC United of Charlton.

White Riot

You couldn't avoid the action in town this week as the final student demonstrations took place in central London ahead of the MP's vote at 6pm.

I saw the march on Oxford st last week and couldn't help getting involved and joining the route. I was intrigued why my good friend Matt Houlahan was so involved having graduated many years before.

Caught up with him just before the protest and he spoke very profoundly about what they were hoping to achieve and the wider picture of privatized society.

Found myself at the front of the march as it left Trafalgar Square and immersed in the excitement and belief the 500,000+ crowd would make their vote count.

They stood, they were counted.
