The theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “ Choose your destination (Week 2)“.

Good afternoon John,
This week I’m in Cragside, around an hour north of Newcastle and just shy of the Scottish border – about as far away from Radiothon as you can possibly be – but I reckon I can tell you exactly what’s going on in the studio at the moment – pandemonium!

Dan Warner’s in the corridor socialising and helping round up the next act, Dr Pump’s chilling in the courtyard, Keith Fuller’s at home avoiding all the fuss and Ed’s in the kitchen sticking his greedy snout into the pastry’s – and you JVG are revelling in the mayhem!

Thanks to all the volunteers in the phone room, the dozens of musicians performing on the show this arvo and a big thankyou to everyone who’s subscribed during Radiothon, and if you haven’t as yet, we’d love to have you on board – and there’s some great prizes to be had.

I can see a big hook trying to grab me round the neck so I’m going to jump before it gets me.
One final appeal before I go – Put it down Ed, it’s your tenth pastry for God’s sake!
