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...
7 Nov '11 w/ Cllr Renata Hamvas and comic Sion James. The Voice of Americans returns to politics with Southwark Councillor Renata Hamvas, who impressed Lisa Moyle, the co-host and Lewis Schaffer, the host, with her knowledge of the minutia of Nunhead life - though nothing is minute in Nunhead to us. Also on board is comedian and Nunhead comedy show promoter (at the Ivy House) Sion James, who is very very VERY dry in comedic approach. I guess when you come from Wet Wales you need something to be dry! With Leanne Bower on the desk.
I don't want to judge this show, but Lisa Moyle, my lovely Co-Host, came into the show a bit tipsy, and it threw me. Coming from a family where both my grandfathers were drinkers (I know, you're saying "But Jews dont drink?!" Both my grandfathers drank which is maybe, just maybe, why I am the way I am?).
The Show was still lovely, as we had the first appearance of Nunhead Comedian Liam Mullone, who used to work at the Times, and lives right near Randy Klein in Nunhead Heights. He may have an immigrant name but he is very, very English and very, very funny. Making a return appearance was Near-Nunhead American and Musician David Randall-Goddard, who is sooo American, compared with Lisa and my New York-types, and also was good for some funny banter. He played us his new single from his band Widescreen and it was very, very spicy! Recommended.
Chris Dixon got us started with the introductions, then Leanne Bower took over the tech side.
My show is 8 PM every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday [God Willing] at the Source Below in Soho, 11 Lower John Street W1F 9TY. "Free until Famous with Lewis Schaffer".
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.
Join Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead in the wonderful world of Nunhead Americans. With funny English comic Juliet Meyers and Nunhead American artist and friend Randy Klein. With beautiful co-host Lisa Moyle, Chris Dixon and Leanne Bower. One of our better shows, to date!
I don't think we had a guest this week so Lisa and I discuss living close to Shea Stadium and watching the New York Mets. And discussing the Eagles of Crystal Palace Football Club with Chris Dixon. A test show, of sorts, and not one of my favourites.
