28 Nov '11 w/Cllr Vicky Mills & Coach Steve Scanlon. Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead. Our best show ever! If you have ever wondered: "What makes Nunhead so good?" This is the show for you! An interesting combination of Nunhead Labour Councillor Vicki Mills, lamenting the loss of community under Margaret Thatcher (or maybe that is just what I heard), Nunhead Football Coach Steve Scanlon, who coaches the up and coming Carnegie Schaffer, giving us the latest on the Athenlay Football Club and also new Nunhead American Jeff Kuntz, telling us how to pronounce his name. All in good fun. How can Nunhead be THAT fascinating? Well it is!!! Listen and enjoy. But wait...
9 May 2011 Christian Reilly, Randy Klein. Voice of Americans! We resume after a three week break for Bank Holidays - who knew when we accepted this time slot we would be able to have the Mondays off so often? Not that we had much choice of time slots! This Voice of Americans show is gorgeous! It comes right after Osama bin Laden and Kate Middleton Wales were all over the press and Lisa and I were well rested. Our special guest, Musician and comic Christian Reilly, ticked a few boxes - worked with Rich Hall, the funny American comedian and the most famous American comedian working in the country today, as Ruby Wax has waned a bit. He is a musician and sang a leftwing type song, which is sure to make many of our listeners feel smug, and he is a comic who has seen me perform my one man show at the Source Below [11 Lower John Street, Soho W1F 9TY, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 PM (God willing) - reservation information at www.lewisschaffer.co.uk or www.sourcebelow.com]. He loved it!!
Also on board was loyal friend and fellow Nunhead American Randy Klein. He is like my older, more successful older brother. We neglected to ask him what I need to help my comedy career

Another thoroughly enjoyable show with four beautiful women in our studios in Nunhead Heights (actually Borough, London - it's all SE!). Nunhead American Robin Schacht is originally from Washington, DC, as in Direct Current, which is ironic, because Washington is the home of Politics and nothing is ever 'direct' in Politics. She chatted with us about her recent trip representing Nunhead the African country of Uganda. How exotic it all sounded but I wasn't moved to want to leave my Nunhead. She was joined by the very exciting Jo Romero, who is a friend for life because of her open and out-going personality, so very American. She relayed details of her trip to New York City, a city, which she said she didn't like at ALL, which surprised Co-Host Lisa Moyle and me. The truth be told, she rented a room in Washington Heights, not at all similar to Washington, DC. It would be like making a visit to South London and not staying in Nunhead! Lisa gave a report on Tara Smith having her baby and moving back to the Upper East Side, which is one place that Jo might have stayed, and then we had a lively chat about how the British do not like to be touched. All very funny! Chris Dixon was suffering from vocal illness so Leanne Bower sound-boarded us again, and added quite nicely to the program. A lovely show! ENJOY!
Welch Frisby - What a lovely show! Join the Voice of Americans, the only radio program for Americans living in Nunhead as we welcome Kansas City Missourian Norman Welch to our program and the return of English performing artist (Standup, voice overs, straight acting, producer) Dominic Frisby! How refreshing it is to hear men talk about raising children, as all three men are fathers (albeit divorced dads who have experience much tumult in their lives.) Norman Welch, who now lives in Catford, one of the sister-cities of Nunhead, and is a screenwriter, author and nascent playwright, coined the term "The Almost Man" which is how his child sees him - having felt that he almost achieved so much. But don't all men feel that way? That we "could have been a contender"? And Dominic spoke about how felt that if took after the children's emotional side, the intellectual side would take care of itself. Something I thought was correct, up until the age of seven, when you've got to beat knowledge into them. Sadly, I am probably wrong! Lovely Lisa Moyle, our Co-Host agreed with Dominic completely. Chris Dixon was still out on Assignment so efficient and intelligent Leanne Bower ably did the Tech. This show was fun to do. I hope you enjoy it, too.
The Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead, the only radio program for Americans living in Nunhead, the Capital of Southwark Water Supplies and Human Burial Services, welcomes back two of our favorites: Michael Holland, the dude who wrote the Southwark News article about our show calling what I say "often cow crap" is back to talk about his new film on successful Nunhead American artist and friend Randy Klein. Randy speaks of working with Michael and Randy offers his services as a life coach to Lewis Schaffer and the show. We try to save the Honor Oak Recreation Ground and talk about how Reg Varney filmed "On the Buses" in Nunhead. Or part of it. And what is the correct pronunciation of Nunhead? Nun-ed or Nun Head? Co-host Lisa Moyle is brilliant, as always, and I mean that without irony. She is a natural and if she gets any better, I am going to have to pull a Tony Hancock on her Syd James [God, I have lived in Nunhead too long - our foreign listeners won't know what I am talking about.] Leanne Bower (with no "S" as she is unique) is ably handling the tech side while amazing Chris Dixon away on 'assignment', not forgotten and definitely missed. Enjoy. See Lewis Schaffer Live and Free every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Soho, London. Info and Reservations at www.sourcebelow.com.
