Head out to shops once in a while

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

WE are grate­ful for the support that we re­ceive from lo­cal business and are al­ways look­ing at ways that we can ac­knowl­edge the support they give us.

One way we are able to do that is by invit­ing them on to our shows so they can in­form the lo­cal com­mu­nity about what they do.

Two such ex­am­ples are Michael King, from the Mykita Ball­room in Mac­cles­field, and James McCance, from the Bond Street Vet­eri­nary Clinic, in Mac­cles­field.

Michael is a lo­cal man and a for­mer un­de­feated North of Eng­land Latin dance cham­pion. Michael joined Nick Wright to talk about his roots and how he, with Anita Cot­trill, formed Mykita in 1977.

James and his wife Sue took over the vet­eri­nary prac­tice from David Hop­kins in 1993 and are proud they are one of the few lo­cal prac­tices that of­fer a 365 day a year ser­vice to lo­cal pet own­ers.

We went to in­ter­view James at his prac­tice armed with ques­tions our lis­ten­ers had sub­mit­ted via our web­site and thank James and Michael for their time. Keep tuned in to 102.8 as we plan to re-run the in­ter­views over the next few weeks.

We also give lo­cal vol­un­tary and not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tions the op­por­tu­nity to come on air to talk about what they do and what events they have com­ing up. If you would like this op­por­tu­nity, ring the of­fice on 01625 576689. I WENT shop­ping with Mrs B to­day.

Gen­tle­men, if you haven’t ac­com­pa­nied your wife on a shop­ping ex­pe­di­tion for some time do it now. You will be shocked and stunned at what you find.

Do you re­alise you can con­trol the weather from your own trousers? No…I’m not kid­ding, it’s true. I knew you wouldn’t be­lieve me so I took a pho­to­graph to prove it.

Cli­mate Con­trol pants, would you credit it? And that’s not all. Some re­tail stores are now so over­whelm­ingly enor­mous cus­tomers must follow a one-way sys­tem. I asked one as­sis­tant how to find the gents toi­let and she pointed me to a map of the world.

I’m telling you, chaps,

‘Cli­mate Con­trol pants, would you credit it?’

it’s a dif­fer­ent world out there since we last went shop­ping.

Do you know you can buy an en­tire new kitchen (work­ing sur­faces, cup­boards, cen­tre is­land the lot and take it all home on a Fiat 500) ac­cord­ing to the ad­verts?

Now, I’m not say­ing you should go ev­ery week but just once in a while ven­ture out with the mis­sus and see what’s go­ing on.

You don’t want to dis­cover she’s bought a new ap­pli­ance that’s made you sur­plus to re­quire­ments.

We guys need to stick

(Keep me posted on what your women are up to.)
