You've got the whole world to choose from... Where are you going to book a stag do? Dorking, of course. Steve was absent this week as he took in the sights and smells of Dorking. Meanwhile, The Great Leader was thrilled to have an insight into the various listener chambers; but do you REALLY listen in a cave???

The Important Broadcast Module 78: The Tasty Nasty Pasty Pasty

For the sake of clarity - the first "pasty" in the title is pronounced PAYSTEE and the second is pronounced PASTEE. Glad we cleared that up. Welcome to Module 78 of The Important Broadcast.

The Important Broadcast Module 76: A See Through Bag With An Atrocity In It

The Important Broadcast Module 76: A See Through Bag With An Atrocity In It

If you hadn't heard of a pig pluck before, then now is the time to start listening. The Great Leader tackled the issue of 'compliance' this week and did so with great aplomb.

The Important Broadcast Module 75: I Can't Believe No One Else In Here Cares

The Important Broadcast Module 75: I Can't Believe No One Else In Here Cares

You could never conclude that The Important Broadcast is one to pass you by without controversy. The Great Leader loves it: Every Sunday he arises from his slumber and bathes in a vat of liquid controversy, before setting off for the broadcast. This week, you can expect a story about a monkey, a new X-Rated feature (not saucy) and a deeper look into Steve's dreams (not saucy*). Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you. *sometimes saucy

The Important Broadcast Module 74: I’d Like To Announce My Candidacy

By all means announce your candidacy for a political party. Everyone else is doing it. But don’t, for goodness sake, try to usurp The Great Leader. He hates it when people do that. This week’s episode will bring you a night out with Chris Moyles & Johnny Vaughan, a pesky crow and sexy puffin. That’ll be plenty. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk.

The Important Broadcast Module 73: It's In The Basement of A Hostel

The Important Broadcast Module 73: It's In The Basement of A Hostel

Greetings Dan Fans. This week The Important Broadcast Podcast had an air of silliness. A giddiness if you will. It'll make you feel as though you just stepped off the tea-cups and ate several donuts in quick succession. Or not. What you can expect involves a daring seagull, a Kruise holiday (yes that's "Kruise" and not "Cruise") and a meat face. There's also a brief stop at the David Hasselhoff museum. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

Steve Ferdinando: Always hiding his light under a bushell. Once you know what his job really is, you'll never think of him in the same way again.

The Important Broadcast Module 71: What's Down There?

The Important Broadcast Module 71: What's Down There?

Name another broadcast that'll bring you up to speed on turkeys, mayonnaise & rice dishes... YOU CAN'T. This week, the Great Leader talks photography, potentially offends the Cockney community and brings the game of Dinner Winner into disrepute. You can also expect a fair few mentions of monster trucks. All that plus the dramatic retelling and 10th anniversary of THAT Eurovision story!    Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk   Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 70: I Could Smell His Wings

The Important Broadcast Module 70: I Could Smell His Wings

You may think to yourself, "Dinner Winner isn't everyone's cup of tea" - but that is irrelevant. How would you know what The Great Leader and The Nitwit had for dinner otherwise? Exactly. This week, Steve went to the theatre, but don't ask him what he saw; that's a pointless question. In other news, Danny found himself in the news. Damn those tabloid jackwagons.  Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 69: What Do You Reckon Richard Madeley's Doing?

The Important Broadcast Module 69: What Do You Reckon Richard Madeley's Doing?

A broadcast should not be easy. A broadcast should not be fun. This broadcast seeks only to educate and spark debate. Should the Pope be getting involved? Should you listen to music when you run? Should you provide a dossier of evidence when discussing what you had for dinner this week? Yes. Just say yes. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 67: They Only Need To Survive The Reception

The Important Broadcast Module 64: Jet Lag Exists

The Important Broadcast Module 64: Jet Lag Exists

The Great Leader was rejoined by the nitwit this week. Fresh (but not too fresh, because jet-lag exists) off the plane from Columbia, Steve returned with offerings of high-culture and nonsese; but mostly nonsense. Expect seagull noises, tulip bulbs (DON'T EAT THEM) and all the "Bad Mother" stories you could ask for. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 63: I Stand Corrected

The Important Broadcast Module 63: I Stand Corrected

Even The Great Leader is wrong sometimes. It happens. With one more week before Steve returns, the listeners were once again employed to fill the void. Alex from Woodbridge played a valiant round of Tell Me Something I Don't Know, and Simon from Essex became The Important Broadcast's very first "Platinum Listener". You can also expect a cameo appearance from Steve as he communicated his Columbian dinners from the other side of the Atlantic! Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 60: I Could Off An Immortal Jellyfish

Immortal or invulnerable? We'll be the judge of that. This week, Steve was (somewhat forcefully) introduced to a new friend. The Great Leader also offers you tales of massage, salsa and welding.

The Important Broadcast Module 57: How Old Are We?

The Important Broadcast Module 57: How Old Are We?

Oh! What a lovely broadcast. This week The Great Leader smiled upon a senior listener with a generous gift and the world smiled with him. Steve didn't hold back when it came to his review of black and white awards-fest "Roma" and Joe forgot how old he is. It happens, doesn't it? DOESN'T IT?? As well as all this, get ready to meet Bigfoot and prepare to learn about caffeine, Polaroid pictures, skiing, salmon & fried chicken!

The Important Broadcast Module 56: I've Got My Opinions

The Important Broadcast Module 56: I've Got My Opinions

Whilst Steve has got no money, he's got his strong beliefs. This week, The Great Leader gives his blessing for the return of Steve's film reviews. Strap in, it gets opinionated. Also, you know how much you love it when someone starts a conversation with; "I had a dream last night, where......." Yes: That happens too. All that plus a difficult decision, a misplaced accusation and some sizeable compensation. It's your Important Broadcast. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

Time's a funny thing isn't it? Does it matter? You bet you're listening partner's backside it does! The Great Leader was disturbed this week by the presence of an astronomical anomaly.

The Great Leader invites listeners (senior and junior alike) onto The Broadcast with caution. He does so to appear approachable, warm and affable. This week, it was decreed that Senior Listener Ben should be allowed to spend some time experiencing The Broadcast first hand, owing to his absent-minded Mother's actions, which caused him to miss the beginning of The Broadcast. Following this, Ben and the other listeners recieved great teachings on bull (hand) fighting, threathening emails and enchiladas. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.

The Important Broadcast Module 42: Literature

Ok, sure.... The Great Leader has written some books. But what about Steve Ferdinando's literary achievements? Does The Important Broadcast spend enough time celebrating those? Perhaps not. This week's instalment looks to rectify this; marvelling at Steve's facility with language and congratulating him on his free-flowing dialogue and effortless delivery. You can also expect a story about a giant peanut, a lumpy hand update and the inevitable facts about animals. Please send your listener comments to Danny@radiox.co.uk Thank you.
