First Clue
I've cut and pasted from my blog to save writing two accounts. (If you want to read the full thing go to )

Theshow began as the lights went down and Jon Naismith walked on stage. He did his usual introduction (which I have heard from the Live CDand other not so legitimate recordings) and then told a new joke! Well, I say new, but I think Graeme came up with the best response - was it new, or had he got it from Barry? The teams were introduced and the recording got underway. I won't give too much away about it, as I'm sure you'll want to wait for the broadcast. Highlights for me were Rob Brydon's fantastic singing, Graeme and Barry's second 'Sound Charades' involving a north west delicacy, Rob and Tim doing the WI with a bran tub full of goodies, which had the whole panel in giggles, especially Tim. I'm sure all of this will make much more sense when you hear it (and I'm hoping it all makes the edit).

The whole recording was great fun. Not only did we get far more than can be fitted into the half hour broadcast, but we also got to see the teams and their reactions, which makes the whole thing even more laughter inducing than just listening.

Then I had to bolt down from my seat to the stage door, where I met back up with various GROKers. And we waited for the teams to come out. And we waited, with everyone turning to the door each time it opened. Eventually Barry came out, but we'd got so used to it not being who we wanted to see that he nearly walked past us all. We did manage to stop him and he signed my Uxbridge dictionary. Then Graeme came out. He seemed to be in a hurry to get away, but did sign autographs. If you remember my regrets at not asking for a hug in Edinburgh, you'll think I would have learned. But no, still the words failed me. There was a moment when I was looking at him and he was looking at me, but I couldn't actually manage to construct a sentence, so the moment passed and I missed out on a hug again! Next to appear was Colin Sell, who we managed to stop to sign autographs.

And finally Tim and Rob appeared. I asked Tim to sign my book, pointing out that the pen was ready (see I did learn something in Edinburgh). He hesitated. I hadn't said who it was to and he probably couldn't read what the others had written. I told him and he signed it. Then I said the magic six words - "can I have a hug please?". The beaming smile that came over his face was truly wonderful. He said "you've been reading about them?" and I wanted to reply that I had experienced their wondrousness in Edinburgh and that I was back for more. But I only managed "mmm" whilst nodding and smiling. So we had our hug, which was even better than I remembered. Then as he was pulling away, whilst I was still in his arms he whispered, "they're good, aren't they". Again I only managed to nod. I was rendered completely speechless by the power of a hug. Then lastly I got Rob to sign my book, which he did when he found space, but ended up writing over the edge of Graeme's signature. I said it was ok and not to worry (see, I can chat to him no problem. It's just Tim and Graeme that render me unable to speak!). And so I had to go and catch my train home, clutching my book and my memories and wondering when the next time would be ...
