Chris Evans, orange & herb butter spatchcock chicken and a Chardonnay
Nick and Angela are overjoyed to welcome their biggest fan to DISH HQ.
In 1983 a young lad from Warrington began his professional career on Piccadilly Radio in Manchester. Forty years on and Chris Evans is a legend of TV and Radio broadcasting, with the Big Breakfast, the Radio 1 Breakfast Show and TFI Friday garnering cult status. Chris has also found time to pen some books on his incredible life and his passion, running, which he took up age 47. He now presents the Virgin Radio Breakfast show, weekday mornings from 6.30am.
Chris Evans doesn’t do podcasts, but agreed to appear on DISH (because he loves us) to promote CarFest which is the biggest family fundraising festival in the UK. CarFest has raised over 25 million pounds for charity in 12 years. This year’s event is taking place on the August bank holiday weekend. Tickets are available at www.carfest.org
Angela prepares a delicious meal of orange and herb butter spatchcock chicken with french fries for our guest of honour, who is a big fan of both, while Nick pours the Cave de Lugny Chardonnay Mâcon-Villages.
Having eagerly plugged CarFest, Chris Evans does what he does best: tell stories. He shares some emotional memories of his mum’s hotpot, his philosophy on drinking after years of hedonism and why Timmy Mallett is his hero.
Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.
