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.

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 chortle.co.uk, 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.

Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer 17th October 2011 with Comic Matt Roper and Terry Jones of Nunhead's Adventure Playground

17 Oct '11 Terry Jones, Matt Roper. The Voice of Americans is back. Well. we've been on the radio for months but we had a spot of bother uploading the pods to posterous. I don't know who's to blame so I will blame myself.

This show we have lovely moi and co-host Lisa Moyle with the man who runs Nunhead's Peckham Rye Park Adventure Playground, Mr. Terry Jones. A Welsh name for a Lewisham boy but a local favourite. In addition is the very funny English comic Matt Roper who came in his true self, but can often be seen as "Wilfredo" the spitting foreign singer - truly hysterical! Leanne womanned the sound board. Enjoy! And  I will post more soon. This was our best show ever.

Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead 28th March 2011 with comic David Hardcastle, Industry Exec Wayne Saunders and Nunhead Borders Musician Jeff Miller!

Another thoroughly enjoyable show but this time with three big guests!  Join Lewis Schaffer and co-host Lisa Moyle in welcoming, in no particular order, Nunhead Borders and American musician Jeff Miller for a solo appearance without his Hackney Collier Band. He MP3'd their single "Africa" and it sounded AMAZING.  Second up is David Hardcastle, the Bradford England comic and comedy club promoter. He was here promoting his new comedy venture, The Leicester Square Working Men's Club, and his old venture, the comedy night "Get Happy at the Leicester Square Theatre. Finally, we chat with Mr. Wayne Saunders, another person who took on the role of promoting Lewis Schaffer's career, only to realize it was a lost cause. He wouldn't say this directly, he being charming and very English, coming from The Wirral, which sounds similar to "The Bronx" in its charm. Three lovely people, plus the beautiful and talented tech person Leanne Bower  (our Chris Dixon being away on assignment) and gorgeous co-host Lisa Moyle who gave a much-valued report on Nunhead American Randy Klein's and Michael Holland, guest of the show's film. Enjoy!

21st March 2011 Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead with Multi-Talented artist Dominic Frisby and Catford-American Norman Welch!

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.

Voice of Americans with Lewis Schaffer of Nunhead 14 March 2011 with Bermondsey filmmaker Michael Holland and Nunhead American Randy Klein!

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.
