Once again the alternatives are taking over the asylum as Lucy and Roifield stand aside to allow Messrs Andrew Horn and YokelBear to seize control of the podcast and the recording deck is still showing signs of Christmas decorations as they start with a mega rendition of Barwick Green actually from Barwick in Elmet.
YokelBear is fascinated by the impact of Toby on the Brookfield Archers – bad boys are always fun – so long as you are not directly involved. He also hopes Jill is keeping an eye on Ruth’s cooking – if she manages to break out of her carapace. He also likes an inflatable snowman – the appearance of which they pinned on Rob.
They were especially pleased that Rob may have led to a resumption of cottaging at Honeysuckle. Catherine (sorry missed the surname) started listening on the day David pushed Nigel off the Lower Loxley roof! She is therefore a “Henry”. Another first time caller was Dan John the seventh! He is a “Phoebe” as he started listening in 1998. He has only just grasped that Susan is a comedy character and not merely annoying. Witherspoon is on the end of the line to discuss Henry’s mental state, plus Ruth’s need for treatment as well. Talking helps. Witherspoon continues to hope that what happened in Brighton may soon be revealed to the listeners. YokelBear is backing a Toby / Pip marriage in 2017.
Millie Belle is also on hand live bringing us all up to date on what she is doing with the Facebook page and the Forum. She is grateful for the contributions and is also fascinated by the way Susan can extract information from others with clever questions. More comments about missing characters – Kathy’s absence in particular is cited as inexplicable. Millie also threatened an hour of Roifield talking by himself if the recording has gone wrong!
PS. Fixing the website has needed funds again. So another round of donations please. Just in case Roifield is not feeling up to asking.
