  • Ian Cheeseman: Break-a-Leg

    Back when we only had three TV channels, everyone watched the Eurovision Song Contest. I remember watching, with my Mum, when 18-year-old Dana won the contest with All Kinds of Everything. Fifteen years later, I used that song as my theme tune when I made my broadcasting debut on Hospital Radio. I’ve had quite the career since then.

    This is the time of year when you are spoilt for choice if you want to have an evening in the theatre. March is the month when the big musicals take to the stage at our wonderful Am/Dram societies.

    Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction and I think that applies to the story behind Come From Away, the Musical which ran so successfully on Broadway and in the West End and is now touring around the country.

    What a week! I’ve just spent a few days down in the West End enjoying several big Musicals. It can be very expensive to enjoy an experience like that, though with a bit of creativity in ticket buying, driving down rather than going by train and cheap hotels, it is possible.

  • Alex Cann's Weekly Blog - 16th April

    "You must be completely mad". "Oh no, I definitely couldn't do that". "Why?!" Common responses I've been getting since revealing I'm planning to go on holiday next week with Mrs C and leave my mobile switched off at home. Admittedly, my wife will be bringing hers for any emergencies, which we'll check once or twice a day. But the last thing I want when I'm lying by the pool sipping a mojito with extra crushed ice is the ping of an email, revealing I've forgotten to do something important at work, omitted to pay a bill, or something equally mundane.

  • Alex Cann's Weekly Film Blog - 16th April

    As I'm only a few days away from my first trip abroad since before the pandemic, I've not actually made it to the cinema in the last seven days. Since life has got in the way this week, I thought we'd take a quick look this week at the top ten highest grossing movies of all time in the UK, and see how many you'd seen. The data is thanks to a website called "Salty Popcorn"...definitely the best kind of popcorn, incidentally.
