Hey, what do you think of Blair Jacobs then, the presenter on Radio Humberside who was standing in for Burnsy this morning? Kinda dishy isn't he, I was all hot and bothered. Now he's the kind of guy I would go for if he was available, ha ha. Well a girl can dream can't she.
The interview went quite well, I had a few hesitations when I couldn't get the words out. My mouth was two seconds ahead of my brain, but then the old grey matter caught up and I gabbled on a bit, then there was no stopping me :o)
The Studios in Queens Gardens. Afterwards I sat in the sun and watched the world go by, eating my packup lunch.
While I was there I thought I might as well have a litle bimble. This is the Guildhall.
Not sure who this bloke is, but it makes a nice picture in the sunshine.
The man on top of the plinth looking down on Hull is Mr Wilberforce. He stands outside the college.
I went to have a look round the Street Life Museum and found some people dressed in period costume having their photo taken. Me being nosy I asked what it was for, they said it's for publicity brochures.
I politely asked if they would pose for me, and they did. One of them also took my photo when I said I had just been on the radio, ha ha.
Here are a few photo's from inside the museum. I have never seen anyone ride a real penny farthing bike before, I wonder how they get on it.
You can climb inside this carriage and it takes you on a pretend journey without going anywhere. It's like one of those virtual rides at a theme park. You get the motions and the sound effects. It was bumping along on the cobbles, a very rough ride, and the two men driving it were talking to each other. You could hear the horses hooves as well.
When you walk into this room you get a horrible smell, just like a men's old fashioned urinal where they haven't aimed straight and missed the trough. I asked the attendant why it smells, he showed me a grid in the floor, they pump up the aroma to make it more realistic. I thought it was disgusting and made a quick exit. Yuk :o(
I love these old trolley buses. This one is a bit like those on Blackpool promenade.
It's a fantastic museum if you ever get to Hull. Lots of interesting stuff to see.
Anyway, if you didn't get to listen to the interview you can get it here. You need to fast forward it, I start at 1hour 46 minutes.http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00pq52z/David_Burns_22_03_2012/
