In response to requests on The Best of Bridport Radio we are going to start a thread where you, the illustrious members can tell your comrades a little bit about yourselves, which is just as well because some people think I (Ed) make up all this stuff myself (if only I had the time) or that Carlito really is the alter ego of Bridport Mayor Geoff Ackerman (if that was the case we’d have witch burning at the Leisure Centre).

So I’ll start off (I’m not doing a form to fill in – it’s not bloody Facebook)

  1. About yourself: Kung Fu Web wizard, father, lover, friend, gobshite
  2. Likes about the town/area: It is one of the most beautiful areas in the world.
  3. Dislikes about the town: Inconsiderate people.
  4. Fav music: cowpunkskadub
  5. Fav website (after BR): Today it's 
  6. Other info: I want a sandwich...

Me: bitter and twisted accounts clerk (aren\'t we all?), late 20s, grew up \'round yer but then moved about a bit... and came back, obviously. Likes about Bridport: It isn\'t a city. Has a unique quirkiness. Has the audacity to market a cliff with a silly name based on the success of Jurassic Park - and it worked. Down to earth not-too-pretentious people (let\'s keep it that way please). Dislikes: It isn\'t a city. Grockles. The price of houses and rent. Dithering idiots in cars/supermarkets/on pavements. Mostly the only things happening are farmer or old people or religion things (I\'m annoyed at missing Inside Out last w/e). Music: indie/rock/alt, 90s stuff, a bit of electronica if it has a discernible tune. Websites: (tracks MP3s you play on yer PC),, Other: I need to get out more, any recommendations?

Me, Back on the keyboard, Loudmouthed, Rude, Self Opinionated, Correct most of the time, has the summers off to idle about in grockle clothes, husband and father but not to the same person, enjoys laughing at anything that makes me laugh which is anything. Likes; the views that not many people know about or can find, east beach on a warm September evening when it is full of locals, market days, the traffic wardens, and voluptuous buttocks in tight fitting jeans. Dislikes; religion in all of its ridiculous and unbelievable forms, grown ups who read harry potter books, the new cycle lane next to the new traffic calming outside the new medical center, young people who seem to think it \""""cool and well random like\"""" to try and speak like some Harlem pimp gangsta, people who want to fight when they go out. Music, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, anything that Sly and Robbie have been involved in, and classical music but only if it\'s good enough to make me weep Fav Web Site Other Info, I have heard that pig’s cheese is lovely with banana and garlic pickle
