Man In Box

Posted in Fun, Media, Radio by Claire Burgess on March 15, 2010

There are just over 13hours left of Tim Shaw’s Man In Box. Tim is locked into a steel box that is 3 feet high, 4.5 feet wide and 8 feet long. His only daily highlight has been a delivery of basic food and water through a tiny double-skinned hatch. He is somewhere in the UK and will stay there for a total of 30days (or until he is found). He has no idea where he is accept for the fact it is somewhere significant that he has been before. If you find him in the next 13 hours you will get £30,000.

I met Tim a couple of times whilst working at Kerrang! and have always found his radio to be some of the most creative around. Now I wish I could just work out where he could be! You can work it out too here

Sony Rising Star Award

Posted in Birmingham UK, Claire Burgess, Media, Radio by Claire Burgess on April 7, 2009

A friend of mine from my Kerrang! days Henry Evans aka ‘Singing Henri’ is nominated for this year’s Sony Rising Star Award. He is a very nice guy and thoroughly deserves to win. His singing travel always made me laugh and he always used to help me out around the place. Now it’s my turn to return the favour. Please give him a listen and vote for him here:

UPDATE: Henry did win The Sony Rising Star Award 2009. Well Done Henri!!!!
