A tribute to Joni Sledge

This edition of the Loose Goose Radio Show is dedicated to the memory of Joni Sledge. I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Sister Sledge, at Red Dragon FM, during the early 90's. I loved meeting the sisters, an unforgettable night. Here is an edited version of the show, on which my guests reviewed new releases and, on this occasion, ate pizzas! God bless you Joni and thanks for the music xxThe Goose goes Punk!

Steve Johnson is a stalwart of radio. His background encompasses BBC and commercial radio, and his talent for broadcasting has never been given so much freedom as it has on the Loose Goose. Background Steve was born in Wales to a small family of foxes, who raised him as their own. Finally, after being chased by huntsmen in the late 90s, Steve decided to leave the comfortable hole in the ground which had been his home and try for a career in the big, mysterious outside world. Attending catering college, Steve narrowly missed out on praise for his Boeuf Crout and Lobster Bisque, thanks to an interfering coroner. After leaving catering college, again pursued by huntsmen, he decided his future lay infront of a microphone. He applied for a job with BBC Wales, and was accepted as third Presentation concubine. This was a role he kept for a couple of years, until a regular presenter was rendered incapable of speech because of a surfeit of muffins occupying his mouth. Steve leapt in and presented the most wacky, way out, humour filled and original broadcast the station had ever had, which lasted a mammoth three hours - although this was later viewed as somewhat long for a traffic bulletin. After leaving BBC Wales - again slightly faster than the pursuing huntsmen - he joined the commercial sector and was for some years in charge of Laundary FM, the station which serves all the local laundaries throughout the South East Wales transmission area. His brief was to keep his chat to the issues concerning laundary and dry cleaning, and under no circumstance to mention Mongolian BatsMilk Cheese. However, as time passed the lure of mentioning the cheese became too much, and after a much publicised on air breakdown, Steve built a small fortress inside the gents toilet (out of what it is still unclear) and proceeded to do a broadcast lasting some twenty three days, when he also provided the music on his washboard and portable Bontempi organ. Steve left that station sometime later and was employed by Dreadful FM, the station serving South Wales with trite superfluous nonsense interspersed with chart music. The station liner "Dreadful FM, We're FM Dreadful" was never more appropriate but it was here that Steve developed a large following, taking the station reach all the way to just over 7 listeners. Steve left there to work at GTFM, where he works with a fine, talented bunch of broadcasters, and oversees a winning combination of speech and music whilst still hiding from huntsmen. He enjoys good conversation, travel and vindaloo porridge,
