Thanks to everyone who came to my show, it was great fun, despite serious heck­ling from the Gilmour family.
Also cheers to everyone who’s been lis­tening in and emailing during my radio show, I must say I love it, and hope­fully will be doing it for some time yet..

    I hope so too. Your radio show just gets better every week. Loved the String Theory — it’s not everyone that could carry that one off 😀

    Careful on those ski slopes!

  2. Thomas Robinson - March 16, 2008 8:06 PM

    It was another great show on friday and i man­aged to stay awake for the whole thing this time (NB. I don’t fall asleep because Guy is boring just because i don’t get enough sleep during the week.) Maybe you should direct the lis­teners to this web­site so they can find a bit about you first before asking if you went to orgys in the 70s. All that proved is that there is a more inap­pro­priate hobby to have whilst lis­tening to your show than playing world of war­craft.

    Did the Gilmours heckle you throughout o was it just when you were talking about them? He didn’t shout out for you to play See Emily Play did he? 😆

    Enjoy your hol­iday, you’ve cer­tainly earnt it.

    Thomas

  3. Phoenix - March 16, 2008 8:47 PM

    Don’t break any­thing when you’re on hols, Guy, we’ll miss you until you get back. 🙂

  4. Thomas Robinson - March 16, 2008 9:02 PM

    Does anyone know whats hap­pening instead of guys radio show next friday? Is there a dif­ferent guest pre­senter? A repeat of an old show? Just music played with no pre­senter like during the night?

  5. Caroline - March 16, 2008 10:02 PM

    If you don’t mind my asking, on what exactly did the Gilmours heckle you? After having read about two thirds of your book (saving the last third for some­thing to read on my trip to Raleigh, NC next week), there is no telling… 😀

    I may or may not be the only one, but I enjoyed the sci­ence bit of your show this past Friday…I like the idea of learning some­thing that is not only cool but also cur­rent without being too polit­ical (if I hear ‘pri­maries’ one more time, I might just pull out my hair), reli­gious, and/​or just down­right depressing.

    In addi­tion to that and the won­derful as always music, it was also neat to hear you talk about UFO and the fact that your dad made an appear­ance on an episode of that…based on your com­ments AND what I have read else­where, I’ll have to see that episode and the overall series when I can, British/​Cult TV nut I tend to be.

    Like everyone else, I’ll miss your show later this week, but you have cer­tainly deserved your upcoming hol­iday. Hope you and yours have a fun and espe­cially safe time on the drifts and slopes, Guy! 🙂

    - Caroline

  6. ash - March 17, 2008 1:41 AM

    Enjoyed the show, espe­cially the sci­ence. Will it be a per­ma­nent fea­ture ? Did you see the TV pro­gramme ear­lier this week by Stephen Hawking? Same sub­ject. Fried my brain. Finally, have a look on the ‘New Scientist’ mag­a­zine web site for the cover of the March 8th edi­tion. (same sub­ject again but really great cover 😉 )

    Don’t go breaking any legs.

    Those not playing ’ Warcraft ‘, a little read, a math­e­mat­ical expla­na­tion of life, mate­rial for your Science show, Guy.

    It was really a great show, I enjoy it, and don’t regret the trip, plane, train and so !!! just one bad !!!
    just one thing, white wine, expen­sive and not really good.….

  10. Thomas Robinson - March 26, 2008 5:16 PM

    Great news — Planet Rock is open for at least one more month. That means that Guy’s shows can con­tinue for at least a little while longer.
    Will there be a show this week or is Guy having a well deserved second week off? I’m get­ting with­drawl symp­toms.
    Cheers,
    Thomas

  11. Graham Knight - March 27, 2008 4:50 PM

    Guy,

    im desparately trying to find out if im the fun­niest person in Cranleigh, appar­ently there are lots of funny people here! At least we dont heckle like those in the next vil­lage (o.k. its in another county)

    Have a good hol­iday look for­ward to your show again when you get back

    Graham

  12. Caroline - March 28, 2008 5:14 PM

    *insert stock footage of old ladies clap­ping and a foot­ball crowd here*

    That is cer­tainly great news about Planet Rock, Thomas. At the risk of sounding too opti­mistic, I had a feeling that PR’s lifespan would be length­ened a little bit…how could it not with not only all of the peti­tions and such going on, but also the fact that, at least from what I’ve read, PR is the most lis­tened to DAB sta­tion in not only the UK but quite pos­sibly the world too…

    I too am looking for­ward to the next edi­tion of the show too, be it this week or next…hope the hol­iday is/​was a good one!

    - Caroline

  13. Graham Knight - March 31, 2008 11:07 AM

    Just a thought, back when the pirate radio ships, Radio Caroline, Luxembourg & Radio London were closed down many off the DJ’s from those sta­tions were later employed by the BBC. If Planet Rock is unfor­tu­natly to close down are we looking at Guy being the next Tony Blackburn!!

    someone please keep Planet Rock on the air!

  14. ash - March 31, 2008 8:08 PM

    Hello Guy,

    It seems to me that female artists are not get­ting much air­play on Planet Rock. (I googled female rock stars and there are lists of the top 100 on sev­eral pages.) One day last week in the course of about seven hours lis­tening, the only female I heard was Grace Slick.

    I wonder if you would be able to do a Ladies Night or hour or 15mins. If you’re taking requests, I have a few in mind.

    Wishing you con­tinued suc­cess,

    ash X
