The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 24th April 2015

Mayor Matthew Broderick made good on his promise to 'purple, kumquat' (see last weeks post, although don't, because I spelt it wrong last week) and indeed arrived at the studio armed to the teeth with rotten kumquats, which turn purple when they rot. Fearing for the cleanliness of the newly furnished studio, the Drive Time team went into full defence mode. Chris and Honor built up the barricades by using all the furniture that was available in the office while Simon topped it off with the barbed wire that he keeps on his person 'just in case of emergency'. The plan was to wait Mayor Broderick out. They had more than enough food because of Danny's secret stock of Lucky Charms that he keeps in a draw under the desk. The plan was a sound one, until a few of Mayor Broderick's chums came by: his Secretary of War, Steve Guttenberg, and his Chief of Police, Fred Savage.

Savage, who became famous for his role in The Wonder Years and then as lead singer for death metal band Braindead Corgi Hell, is well known around St Albans for his often harsh policing methods and love of Shirley Temple films. However, our intrepid heroes were confident they could hold out against the terrible trio, until they saw Savage leading the police's new water cannon to the front door...

Will Danny, Simon, Honor and Chris survive?! Will they save the new studio?! Find out next week, in the latest instalment of Drive Time Dynamos!

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office top 10, his pick of films for the coming week on TV and the new releases in the cinema.
