Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer 20 February 2012 with comic Ivor Dembina, & Nunhead restaurant Folk Gion Leka and Bobby Dowler!!

20 Feb '12 Ivor Dembina, Gion Leka. Listen to the Voice of Americans from Nunhead. The only Radio program for Americans living in Nunhead. Our best show, ever!  English comic Ivor Dembina on fine form as he sits in with Frog on the Green proprietor, Nunhead resident and former Albanian, Gion Leka. He brought along Bobby Dowler, an artist and restauranter-in-arms (with Gion) at the Provisional Soup Kitchen on Copeland Road. Bobby's from the oppressed nation of Croydon, south east London.  It just happened an hour ago and I can't remember a thing - that is the mark of a great, great show. Oh, Ivor was trying out jokes!


Gion and I had met perhaps eight years ago at the Father's Baby and Toddler Group at the Townley Road Clinic, run by lovely Penny in East Dulwich. I hadnt remembered him when I called him on the phone to arrange for him to come on the show - such a small small world Nunhead is! He told me how I was laid low at the time and was a very attentive father, going often, for instance, to wipe my son's nose.

Lisa Moyle was wonderful again as co-host. Hannah Brown was expertly manning the tech desk. Enjoy!

Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer 13 February 2012 with Malcolm Collins of Friends of Nunhead Cemetery and ex-Nunhead American Robin Schacht!!

13 Feb '12 Cemetery, Robin Schacht.  The Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer and Lisa Moyle. Our best show ever! Every day our show becomes more and more about our beloved Nunhead. This week we learned that Charles Dickens might have actually died in Nunhead. (Yes, Wikipedia that!) "Satheast" Londoner Malcolm Collins gives us the inside dope on the treasure of Nunhead, Nunhead Cemetery, as a representative of Friends of Nunhead Cemetery (FONC). "Why does a cemetery need friends?" is one question we asked.

It has only taken us two and half years to have someone from his organization in the studio.  His daughter, Anita, couldn't make it and I was pleasantly surprised when Malcolm was able to hold the show on his own.  

As always, Robin Schacht from Washington DC and Nunhead added good, wholesome American spirit to the proceedings.  Not that co-host Lisa Moyle isn't wholesome, she is, but in a very New York way. It struck me who Robin reminds me of: a very young, and perhaps even prettier Meryl Streep! Lovely Leanne Bower has flown the coop - sadly. A shout out to her Mom and her Dad up there in Barnsley or Burnley or Blackburn or Blackpool. It begins with a "B", that is all I know.  Lovely Charlotte ran the soundboard for the first time, under able direction of Chris Dixon, who also added a very funny joke to the show.  And Lisa Moyle was particularly pleasant! Enjoy.

Joining is his funny black friend Super Zuma (aka Elkin Gordon Atwell) who was running security for and is himself a social entrepreneur and technologist.

hannah Brown is working the tech desk as Leanne Bower has decided she needs to go to sleep early on Mondays. With lovely Lisa Moyle, fascinating and beautiful as ever!

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...

Robin Schacht, Nunhead American (well, she used to live in Nunhead and she is such a good sport) sat in Co-Host's Lisa Moyle's seat, as Lisa was out sick suffering an English Disease. We missed her. Leanne Bower is ably working the board. Chris Dixon on emotional support. Enjoy. 

Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer 7th November 2011 with Nunhead Councillor Renata Hamvas and Nunhead Comic Sion James!

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.

This was the best program we have done so far. Enjoy!

Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer 24th October 2011 with Nunhead Musician Hank Dogg and Comedy Guru Steve Bennett

24 Oct '11 Hank Dogg, Steve Bennett. This was our best show, EVER. Join Lewis Schaffer and Lisa Moyle Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead. Two amazing guests! Hank Dogg, the Nunhead rock n roll musician, playing a song or two including "Margaret Finch" - a fabulous guest who highlights how much musical talent and personality reside in Nunhead. Second, but by no means second, is Steve Bennett, the dude behind, the most visited comedy website in the UK. I love him cause he is sooo American: Have an idea and do it through sheer hard work and determination. I am envious as I am a lazy sod. "Sod"? Yes, sod, I said it. I am Englishy. I assume Leanne Bower is womanning the soundboard. I haven't listened since and I forget. If not, Chris Dixon. Either way, brilliant micro- broadcasting.
