Letters to the Editor: July 2003

Posted on 20 July 2003 in Planet Bods (No comments)

Yes you guessed it, it's time for more Letters to the Editor, where you the reader, get to communicate with me, the bloke who runs this site.

With it now being July 2003, it's been over six months since our last edition, but don't forget, we keep every edition of Letters to the Editor online - just use the links on the page.

And with that, let's get on with it!

Could you please find out if a news report on two brothers who produced a soap for skin complaints was on your channel. And if it was forward any info on this. Thanks a lot.

Well first let me apologise for the delay, but the Planet Bods TV archives are quite extensive and I wanted to ensure I answered your email accurately.

I can tell you that Planet Bods TV has not broadcast such a report. Indeed it has never broadcast anything. Indeed Planet Bods TV doesn't exist, which will be why it took me so long to find the archives.

The closest I got was some home movie footage that accidently captured me washing my hands with a bar of Lush's Lemon Bohemian soap, but that's about it I'm afraid.

I would forward you the soap, but I'm afraid it got used up.

I wondered if you would be interested in doing an article on a local capoeira group. Capoeira is becoming increasingly popular and is even used now by the BBC (two men in red t-shirts on a rooftop).

Well Capoeira isn't really my thing. I'm more of a clog dancing man, but thanks for the offer.

I am trying to find out who played Lash Laroo in the TV series, that I think was on the TV in the 1950s.

Well I hope you find out. When you do, feel free to let me know.

Where did the catch phrase "The North Forty" come from and where is the north forty located...

Basically it was Ted Jones the Butcher who was based at 40 North Road. When asked where his shop was he'd always say 'The North - number 40'. Well over the years, so many people asked him where his shop was that he shortened it to 'The North Forty'. In the end he gave up and put up a sign at the end of the road - it's still there, next to the Job Centre.

It remains there to this day, right next to number 38.

I saw your page all about setting up a radio station. I was just wondering if you know what kind of equipment you need for this, roughly how much it costs and where to get it from. Also how do you apply for a license?

You mean my amazing Howto guide to setting up a radio station didn't tell you enough? What more do you want me to tell you? Tell you what - why don't I just come and set it all up for you - free of charge of course. Not as if I have anything better to do with my life.

Well that's it for this issue! Our mail bag is still brimming with emails so if we haven't got to yours just yet, don't worry! We will!
