The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 13th December 2013

Today Simon was back in the studio to do the Film Guide after we took last week off. It was entirely Simon's fault that the show was cancelled last week because he is too much of a diva. Yep, that's right, Simon Carver threw a diva-strop and that meant the show could not continue. First of all, when Simon turned up in his limo we didn't have anyone waiting to greet him at the door. Our insistence that we are an all volunteer station and can't just hire someone to greet Simon at the door didn't seem to sit well with him but he still came into the building. When he discovered that we hadn't acquiesced to his request to lay out 3 bowls of pre-opened pistachio nuts and half a honey dew melon in his dressing room (which is in fact the toilet we share with the talking newspaper next door; Simon has scrawled his name on the door with a compass). This was the final straw for Simon who picked up his chihuahua, Miss Puddley-Pups, and flounced out the door.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio tonight to talk about the UK box office and the best films on free-to-air TV for the coming week.
