Bland On Bland – Cherry

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Cherry“. I don’t know what I was thinking today, I forgot to provide the background for today’s poem.  Yesterday (August the 5th) was the anniversary of the Cowra Breakout, the largest prisoner of war breakout of the Second World War. 359 Japanese prisoners of… Read More

Bland On Bland – Bitter

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Bitter “. Great show this week, one of the best. Special thanks to everyone who came along to the Lomond Hotel‘s “Players and Pullers” festival on Saturday, a brilliant day. Hope to see some of you on the 30th  Ed Bates was in what… Read More

Bland On Bland – Best

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Best “. This week JVG gave us all a great theme to work with. Talk about spoilt for choice. The path I went with is an idea that kept popping up again and again during the week. I have to stop watching bad ‘B’… Read More

Bland On Bland – Losers

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Losers “. This weeks theme was inspired by the impending Community Cup, the annual charity (charitably called) football match between the MegaHertz (3RRR/3PS) and the Rockdogs (Musos).

Bland On Bland – Runaway

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Runaway “. What a great theme JVG picked this week and for the sharp eyed among you – yes we did do do Runaway once before back in Mar 2007 Jon and I chatted about the week gone and the glamour of running away… Read More

Bland On Bland – Clothes

The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Clothes “. JVG was sadly absent from the show today and the hosting duties were covered by Dr Pump. A great show and I loved the poem theme I was given. Ed Bates, provided backing this week. Here’s the poem below… To play this… Read More
