      Maybe I’m sensitive, but there’s something quite ageing about having seen Frank Ifield perform live, even in your teens. Good yodel, though. 🙂

      EDIT: When I say “girl”, I’m being my usual diplomatic. The girl in question is 60+. How many Billie-Piper types do you know that stir teabags on a voluntary basis?

      🙂 I do a bit of voluntary work, stirring seven teabags in a teapot the size of Sri Lanka. Lovely girl I chat with, there – always asks me if I listened to BBC Lancashire that day. She ‘phoned in once because they had a guest who was nearly as big as Frank Ifield in ’63. Gave him the full “I met you in Mansfield dance hall, you must remember me; I had the pink shoes on.”

      I felt for the poor guy, sat in a studio with headphones on, struggling to remember some chance encounter in a provincial dancehall 40 years previous. To his very great credit, he didn’t ask “Did I give you one?”

      Great observation Bass, our BBC Essex is exactly like that, they have a phone in every day around 11am, people phone up and say they have an ironing board (needs new cover and legs) and want £10 or near offer and my number is Braintree blah blah blah, i feel sorry for the poor sods who have to host it, they try and sound jolly to this crap, and every now and again when you get a very tedious loathsome old git banging on about the price of sausages, and you can never park in sainsburys on a saturday, and his pension isnt enough to live on, and you can hear in the background a Pistol being loaded, raised to the head and then the trigger being cocked, but never hear the gun go off, must be a very very dull job.

      Oh, I loathe those sellers of “air guitars” on eBay.

      Yeah, big joke, ha ha! Not seen that one before.

      They must be brain dead if they think it’s funny. It certainly isn’t original or novel.

      I usually send the seller a message with a few choice insults.

      Oh hahaha… great example, I felt like I was really there listening, heck it’s even raining down here today.

      Yeah my local is exactly the same. Worse but thursday nights when they take requests from the senior citizens home up the road. SENIOR CITIZENS!

      As an Aussie who listens to brit radio quite a bit on the net, I didnt expect BBC would be too bad, well at least one of its many stations to be okay? I mainly have Virgin or Sky on and BBC only on occasion for a doco or something live.

      Mike, for a minute I was worried that Avatar-Eric was an air-guitar seller dicking about on the Fleeb. You don’t know how relieved I am to learn that he’s merely an example of the entirety of BBC local-yokel hick-radio staff wasting my licence fee. It must be cheaper than if they reverted to stealing paperclips, eating subsidized sandwiches in the canteen and occasionally telling us when the nearest pharmacist was open, as is the normal output of the bandwidth-wasting garbage that occupies a whole heap of the MW spectrum.

      Ooops, did I sound a little cynical? Expect the “BBC Licence Fee” van (the one with a coat-hanger glued to the roof and two, bored blokes sat inside reading “Fat Tarts” magazine) to park outside my house for a few weeks. 👿

      I think that one looks quite eye catching Bass, and although i would have reservations about playing it in some of the rougher pubs around the East End, id feel quite happy to play it at childrens party.. Where do i get one?

      thanks for that, it’s a must for the thread. Too find out more on Air Guitar Eric and his army of Air Guitar warriors, visit this BBC page with more picture sure to cause delight.

      Now I have to find another guitar to make this post on topic.

      Yes I’m waiting for someone to repost the Disney one because I didn’t want to touch it. Despite a coworker here in the office thinking it is “awesome.” 😀

      And thankyou 1b, it’s some guy from your part of the world called air guitar eric, doing the “Walk of Life.” He looks like a fun guy to have at parties.

      Speaking of Evil Stuff, I seem to remember punting up a hideously gaudy (and carved) Disneyland Anniversary Strat in the “Worst Finish” thread. I don’t mean to dredge it up again, but it reeked “corporate awfulness”.

      Speaking of awfulness, new avatar, Mike?

      Wherever coke is, pepsi is usually trying to get a bit of the limelight.

      The J.D strat takes it to new levels because of the shape.

      What’s this? A new advertising slogan from Coca Cola:#http://homepage.ntlworld.com/charlottecooper/guitarsite/img/mofo4.jpg

      This Futurama actually belongs to an old friend of mine who’s a big fan of cheap and tacky guitars. Check out his website here: htp://homepage.ntlworld.com/charlottecooper/guitarsite/

      How about this lovely Jack Daniels bass:

      #http://homepage.mac.com/rjschwarz/.Pictures/bass.jpg

      Squier also produced a Jack Daniels Stratocaster, but it was a bit crap to be honest – the main part of the graphic was on the rear of the guitar. Here’s the front:

      Position your right arm carefully whilst playing and no-one need ever know you’ve got such a sad guitar.
