Joel Ross

Joel Ross used to be on Viking FM in the late 1990s before his move to Key 103 then Radio 1. When I printed (yes, I know) this page from the then brand new Viking FM website, I never knew he would become nationally known as one half of JK and Joel. This 3rd generation (photo of a print out) shows his curtain dyed blonde hair style he had then. One curtain seems to have been so heavy that he had difficulty keeping his head straight. Or maybe that's just his coy look.

To be fair,I remember listening to him on a train going through Yorkshire, and he was good. Even I had curtains back then. I just can't find any photos of them to put on here. Thanks for being there Joel!

Stay tuned - I have some great recordings of Joel from Yorkshire Coast Radio in what must have been about 1993 or 4 which I will upload to this very post when I have edited them!

Puma Mid Manga 917

The Puma Mid Manga 917 trainers ended up in the sale, so they were £25 itstead of £45. I got a pair of size 11UK 'cos that's what I am in Vans, and although they initially felt too big, I ordered a size down and they were a bit too small. I read a review that the sizes were on the big side. So I've kept the pair that initially felt too big, but I've been wearing them all day and they feel perfect. I always think the sign of a good shoe is if you don't notice that you're wearing them. These are like that.

As an aside, shoe sizes are crazy. As someone once said, "The great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from!".

I've taken some photos for you to see:
