Showaddywaddy, Lollies and Sweet as a Nut


Everyone loves a fun band, I remember seeing 'Chas and Dave' at a festival in Cheltenham and having a great time, or the Wurzels in Exeter went down a storm. If you like fun in your Rock and Roll then Showaddywaddy may be the band for you!

They are in the middle of a tour of the UK tour at the moment, and Dave has asked me if we can put the remaining dates on the blog, so if you live in Dundee, Wick, Exmouth, Yeovil, St Helens or Blackburn take a look here for more information. If you live elsewhere then still take a look, as there are many more gigs later in the year.

Although Dave is being his usual secretive self I suspect that this is not the last you will hear of Showaddywaddy on Words Fail Me...


As promised on this months Podcast here is the picture of the Lollies that I made, part orange juice, part water, with 2 raspberries in each! Yummy for this beautiful weather we have been having. More recipe ideas in the next podcast (maybe).

If you have not listened to our Royal Wedding special podcast you can download it here, forget the BBC or ITN this is the perfect audio companion to the wedding on Friday!

And finally if you like the music by The Shadow Orchestra that starts each podcast, then watch this nice little video that has been made by EyeSeeSound. As Kat from the band said "Ooh Shiny".

To celebrate the Royal Wedding we decide to visit Westminster Abbey in London to record this months podcast.

Westminster Abbey

Our guest dictionary opener this month is Zandra Rhodes, fashion designer to the famous and all round nice person!


Like two tramps with a microphone we sit steps near the Abbey and talk about ice cream, ice skating and many other cold things! There is some confusion about the version of dictionary we are using, and Dave reveals another bizarre sponsorship deal.

Download the episode now on itunes or at podbean.
