At some point in the last couple of years it has apparently become OK to swear onstage at business events. What the flip is going on?
Today i worked as a commentator and stadium announcer at the Champions League Festival in Hyde Park. I say worked, it was for the Bobby Moore Fund, a charity dear to my heart. Here’s me with BMF founder Stephanie Moore, Bobby’s widow and a truly splendid woman. I commentated on a match between the Parliamentary […]
Google can be a scary thing. I just googled my book title and found it on Amazon already. I’m still writing it! The book ‘Mr Moon Has Left the Stadium’ is a funny account of my life as the West Ham United FC announcer. It comes out on August 1st. It has to be handed […]
Some exciting news – I’ve made it onto the shortlist to be a stadium announcer at the London 2012 Olympics. I’m ridiculously excited about it.
I’m back with a new series of Collectors for BBC East Midlands Today. Last time I interviewed people with collections of valve radios, Roy Rogers memorabilia and badges.

They’re called the Southwell Collective and the movie featured is the 1928 French gothic horror, The Fall of the House of Usher, based on the novel by Edgar Allen Poe. In the story […]

It rocks back and forwards as you play it. I should point out that there is some camera trickery at the start of the […]
This week being Christmas week I’m sharing my favourite ever TV reports with you. Behind today’s Advent calendar window of fun is Speedy the Tortoise. Sadly he lost a leg and his owners made a new one out of Lego. When that fell to bits they were stumped. Fortunately a neighbour who is an inventor […]
All this week I’m putting a different favourite TV report on my site each day. It’s a sort of advent calendar without the chocolate. This year, being a World Cup year, I did a lot of quirky football reports for the BBC. I had a drink in a pub where all the bar staff were […]
