Yes! Jean Slater listens to The Divine Comedy. I was hoping for a dance routine from the entire cast in the Square, but it wasn't to be.

Neil on University Challenge last night.....well not in person but Paxman posed a question about Thomas Walsh of Pugwash and Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy and the name of their cricket based musical collaboration.

Very Happy

Yes, but only after the full question was read out making reference to cricket scoring systems in rain affected games. So they didn't get it on the basis of Walsh and Hannon.

On Come Dine With Me tonight there was a contestant called Lola and a small snippet of Neapolitan Girl was used. Although I'm sure there was a hint of National Express used tonight too.

'Neapolitan Girl' and 'The Lost Art of Conversation' were both played during props week on Dancing On Ice last Sunday. Apparently, Bang Goes The Knighthood is the soundtrack of choice for butterfingers on skates.

Tonight We Fly on Radio 5 last Saturday morning (Christian O'Connell filling in for Danny Baker). Think Dermot O'Leary was on, well someone like that, bit of banter about it being their funeral song.

The intro to "I Like" was played at the start of this Chris Addison stand-up thing on Dave. Addison's a big fan, presumably he asked for it himself!

but strangley he was still funnier than Micheal "its funny because its true" Mcintyre and his hilarious observational comedy.

(i know this and i didnt even watch it)

btw are they trying to "do a boyle" again by bringing out someone who looks like they couldnt identify their own face in a mirror but turns out to have voice like an angel (and an agent) - I have seen some gutter press allude to it so please enlighten me.........

He wasn't in that night's show. I think he was at home alone, getting ready to watch it on the tv, so that he could have some privacy for those few seconds. I imagine.

'At the Indie Disco' in the background in a scene on Ambridge Extra Omnibus. No idea how it happened... The radio just must have switched on by itself... Embarassed

The guy who attacked Rupert Murdoch with a custard pie said on Twitter before he did it:

It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done before.

Of course the original quote is from A Tale Of Two Cities but given that he added "before" on the end makes it a definite DC reference. Razz

i like the idea that the whole hacking thing was an eleberate set up to squeeze in a DC Quote

in my mind immoral behaviour, arrests, job losses and the like are a small price to pay for a pie in the face and a Hannon quote that about 3 people will get.

I look forward to the iraq war ending with Obama declaring "It hard to get by when your arse is the size of a small country"

This is an old(ish) one, but it hasn't been posted yet, so I thought I'd get in there first. Very Happy There was a programme on Radio 4 around Easter called The Swedish Invasion (I think), and I was thrilled to hear 'Sweden' on there.

On August 16th I took a day trip from NI to Ayr in Scotland, went into the local Morrisons supermarket which has become some sort of a ritual, since my family regularly brings something back home from a Morrisons. I was looking at the video games and they were playing Becoming More Like Alfie on the radio. Texted my brother who stayed at home and he replied back with a "Smile".
