There was a great show on Radio 4 today at 11.30am dedicated to Magic on The Radio. It started with the Piddingtons, featured the brilliant David Berglas and many more. It was superb.

You can Listen Again at

David Berglas outlines a number of effects that sounded brilliant including two dartboard effects and a crazy carpentry effect. He has a box with something in it. He gets three volunteers to take part. One saws a piece of wood. The other bangs nails into it and the other drills holes into it. They do so. The box contains a piece of wood the same length, same number of nails and holes. This was 1959!

I heard the show. It was phenomenal to listen to the 'pure silence' (show from the seventies) as a presenter watched Uri Geller bend his producer's house key. It was obvious from tjhat silence thet the guy was totally dumbstruck. Great also to hear Uri suggest to him to 'say' what was happening. Later Uri went on to say thet he preferred radion demonstrations to TV because it motivated the listener to use their imagination more.
Great show, although I would have thought Ant would have been listening to hip-hop on Radio 1. He loves that stuff. Drives him wild!

I wish someone would do a Piddingtons-style act again. Mrs Piddington really sounded the part.

Thanks Anthony.. will have a listen when I get home.

The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.
