  • Just a quick note to say I'm loving the 'Wright Stuff' this week. I'm a fan of the show any way but Martin is really adding some interesting stuff to all the discussions - he really spelled out the hard facts of smoking to one of the panelists.

    The CV debt ad campaign definately gets my approval - she should know better.

    Me too...loved the way Martin made George G quiet this morning....the ex student president skills coming into play there I feel.
    Who made hogs and dogs and frogs?
  • I caught a bit of the Wright Stuff (sorry Martin, I did try, but I can't stand matthew wright) and was entertained by Martin falling into 'The Great Cheshire Trap'. Talking about class, Martin said that he has flat vowel sounds (e.g. in grass, bath etc) and said "I'm from Manchester"... and fell straight into the Cheshire trap! When I was playing gigs around the country with my band, I'd always say I was from Manchester - then one day I met someone else who said the same thing... turns out I'm from Northwich and he was from Middlewich... ;) Come on Martin, be Cheshire and proud!

    You're points well made. Except I am from Manchester. I was born there in Withington hospital and spent the first year of my life there. All my family are mancunians. We moved to Cheshire when I was 1, so i count myself as Manchester born and Cheshire bre(a)d. :)

    Martin was on the ITN news at 6.30pm, just a quick snippet. Talking about how to reduce credit card debts etc, blink and you miss it slot. Repeated at 10.30pm I'd imagine.

    Don't you feel the cold Martin? (Open shirt and light cotton jacket). Everyone in the background seemed to be going around with big coats and scarves on. Just as well you speak at 100 mph, get out of the cold quicker.

Just listening to Radio interviews now that Martin has been on recently.. go to Radio 4 Money Box website where you can listen to the show. Also The recent Jeremy Vine show can be listened to on the Radio 2 site.

    Martin, I was so surprised that you went along with the BBcs money making efforts by encouraging us to vote on a premium rate line, the whole concept of votong for songs that would kindle your interest in music was a non starter from the off. I remember the original show and you didnt say you didnt like music, just that you didnt buy cds.
