talking Barbecues on Damo's All Day Breakfast.

Hi everyone.

Last weekend I bought myself a small barbecue (or grill) to go in our caravan. Over the years many people have asked me what sort of barbecue they should buy, along with tips and tricks for using one, particularly in the context of eyes-free operation, so this week on the show, i thought I'd talk through the different types available, their pros and cons, as well as a few tips and gadgets that are helpful in getting started.

A special edition of The Mosen Explosion in loving memory of Dame Vera Lynn

Dame Vera Lynn has died aged 103. That is certainly a life well lived, and yet like many others her death has deeply saddened me.

Dame Vera was a part of the soundtrack of my childhood. My parents were fans, so I grew up listening to her music. I loved it then, and I love it now. Her pure voice, perfect diction, and plaintive songs of hope still move me. She has been a part of the soundtrack of my adulthood too, in particular, "We'll Meet Again" was played at the end of my dad's funeral service.
