Desert Island Discs

Tim's Blog

Here’s a bit of fun I wrote at Holmfirth Writers a while back.  What if the President of the United States took time out from a state visit to appear on a certain long-running radio programme.  Any similarity to an actual President is, of course, entirely coincidental ….

Kirsty:   Today we are very privileged to have an important guest for this special shortened episode of Desert Island Discs. [ Turns to her guest ] So, Duncan Belch – property billionaire, TV personality and now the most powerful man in the world, welcome to the programme.

Belch:    Thank you, Kirsty, but I gotta say this don’t look much like a desert island to me. Like, there’s a whole bunch of people around, and I don’t recall seeing any water outside, apart from some puddles. Does it ever stop raining here?

Kirsty:   Well, it’s a hypothetical desert island.
