No Rubbish on the Radio today…but here’s something I prepared earlier!

Rock chick
Rock chick - no, really!

Morning all!

Snowed in, oh yea, we’re seriously snowed in and I can’t get to the Apple radio station today…..needless to say, I’m not a happy rock chick.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to bring you any of my usual eco-natter via the t’internet, nor will I be able to give away free tickets to see a movie at your local ODEON cinema, but as if by the power of magic, it seems I can bring you some of the music I had on my playlist!

All you need to do is click on the ‘Pop Out Player’ button below or see my page at PlayList and you can enjoy some of my favourite music, well 10 tracks of it at least, which should keep you occupied and entertained for an hour or so.

If you like the songs, minimise the page, or just open another window and continue your webbing….hopefully I’ll bring a smile to your chops and lighten your morning.

Rubbish on the Radio: For your listening pleasure this week

Win a Saturday nite at the movies!
Win a Saturday nite at the movies!

It’s almost time to go dashing through the snow in my one horse open sleigh (ok, I lied, there’s no sleigh, but it would certainly come in handy this week) to broadcast Slow Down and Green Up on the radio.

Between 10am and 1pm GMT on Wednesday, I’ll be talking about all the things that have tickled my green bone over the past week and as usual, I’ll be giving away free tickets for the ODEON cinema for you to see a movie of your choice.

The lovely Jon Kelly will be dropping in at midday the Odeon Cinema coming in to talk about the hot and happening movies of the week, the absolute must see’s and we’ll also discuss the new film releases too.

Happy days!

It’s mid-week – not that I’m wishing the week away – and it’s time for my regular trip to the Apple studios in Taunton to broadcast Slow Down and Green Up to a willing audience.

Today, between 10am and 1pm, I’ll be talking natural face masks with Jude from the local branch of Lush and I’ll be giving you my top tips for making your own versions using the contents of your kitchen cupboards and fridge!

If you have any burning questions to put to her, give me a call in the studio on 01823 342591 and I’ll get you and answer on air.

I’ve also got the lovely Jon Kelly from the Odeon Cinema coming in too.  He pops in every Wednesday to talk about the hot and happening movies of the week, the absolute must see’s and we discuss the new film releases too.  As usual, I’ll be giving away 3 pairs of tickets to go to your local Odeon Cinema to see whatever takes your fancy.

Morning all!

Oh, I’ve been well and truly told off by my regulars here – lolol – ‘Where’s yer postings missus?’ you’ve been asking.

Well, I must confess, now we’re in 2009, I’ll be sloping off a bit and posting less frequently than once a day, as I have to crack on with my next book, The Great British Downshift which is an incredibly exciting project.

Anyway, I do have a few bits to put on here and will get them up in the coming days (honest guv), but for today, a super shortie!

I’m just about to head off to the radio studio once again (how I love Wednesdays) and between 10 and 1 I’ll be broadcasting ‘Slow Down and Green Up’ on Apple AM

It’s Wednesday and time again for my weekly radio show, ‘Slow Down and Green Up’.

Between 10am-1pm today I’ll be skillfully lacing together a 3-hour extention of The Book of Rubbish Ideas, packed full of great music and chat showing you how to live more sustainbly!

Today I’ll also be talking to a very nice lady from Lush about alternatives to those spray can and ball type deoderants – both of which seem to be empty in a heartbeat and one of which you can’t even recycle.

I’ll also  give  you my own personal review of a few of their anti-armpit pong products too.
