Have been listening to Steve's show on the way home for ages (lies..... usually have a CD on in the car, so this was a rare occasion when I was at home with the radio on!!!!). Anyway, yesterday's site of the day was excellent.

The cooking by numbers site is excellent. A lot of fun, as well as a super investive way of thinking of ideas for our evening meal.

Thanks Miles - will be cheking out your site more regularly - without me having to forego my CD music in the car!!!

Came across this website the other day and thought it was a brillient idea. The reason I say this is because I travel to London to work from my home in Bristol, leaving on a Sunday night and arriving back home late on Friday night. Since finding this website I have worked out how expensive it is for me travelling to and from work and would love the opportunity to work closer to home and spending more time with my family. It would be worth taking a substantial drop in my salary to achieve this. I am currently seeking another similar job in the Avon area. Great show.

Hi Miles listen to your show Steve Ok!Went for a walk with the dogs a week or so ago and noticed a strange plant and wonderwd what the dickens it was and thought it would be a great idea if there was a site where one could E Mail a picture of it and there would be a "Expert" who would identify it and E mail back a answer



you fairly recently mentioned a site which gives common miss-spellings/typos for items on Ebay. I have searhed your site and can't find it, any chance of listing it again please

Miles, My husband and I were married just over a year ago and we created our own CD selections for our wedding disco. Some of my personal favourites that had to make an appearance were "baggy trousers" by Madness, "Come on Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight runners and "Reach" by SClub7. I hope this helps you to create your ultimate wedding disco!!!

Laura Bell


My top three selections which would make any wedding go off with a bang are - 'My everything' (Barry White), 'You to me are everything' (The Real thing) and 'It's Not Unusual' by Tom Jones. Essential wedding disco tunes!

Re: Ultimate wedding songs

Hi Miles,

A couple of suggestions:

Frank Sinatra's 'New York New York' seems to played at every social gathering and is a guaranteed 'floor filler'!

If you get married in Merseyside, it is compulsory to play Gerry & The Pacemakers 'You'll Never Walk Alone' at the end of the night, after a few drinks even some Everton fans sing along to it!

angela o'connor

Must have Wedding Disco songs are:

My First My Last My Everything (Barry White)
Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)
Can't Take my Eyes off You (Andy Williams)

I challenge anyone to stay seated when these come on!!

Ken Rowley

Must have wedding disco songs are:
There'll never be anyone else but you for me. Ricky Nelson. {You may have to really huntfor this one Circa 1960}
Lady in Red Chris DeBurgh
You Look Wonderful Tonight Eric Clapton

Ken Rowley

Chris Brown

Fine Young Canibals - Good Thing (always gets them off their bums)
Stereo MCs - Step It Up
Steve Harley - Make Me Smile

Steve Holmes

No wedding will ever survive without these ----

'Don't Leave Me This Way' by the Communards - GUARANTEED BEST WEDDING DANCE SONG EVER

'Dancing Queen' by ABBA - Who can have a Wedding without this !

'Heard It Through The Grapevine' Marvin Gaye - One of the smoochiest songs EVER !

Gary Fowler

3 Essential wedding songs from a wedding DJ:

Bee Gees - Stayin Alive
(Announce that you'd like to see some fantastic 70's dance moves)

Candi Staton - Young Hearts Run Free

Daydream Believer - The Monkees
(after last dance as an extra one, get everyone on the dance floor singing it as loud as they can for great atmosphere)

Dave M

Hi Miles, With reference to the wedding songs requests, can you tell us which songs were played at your freinds wedding and i hope everything went well,

David Jenkins

Dear Sirs,

I would wish to have my website considered for the Site of the day, and hope that you will be able to inform me of what I need to do to make this possible.

It is www.footballaid.com. We are a charity, hosting experiential events at Football Clubs up and down the UK allowing supporters of Clubs to live their dream by playing in an officiated match on the hallowed turf of the Club they support.

Should you require additional information, please do not hesitate to make contact.

Yours sincerely
