Comedy Dave's Book
By Dave Vitty
Comedy from Dave Vitty - Chris Moyles' hilarious sidekick on Radio 1.Dave Vitty, aka Radio 1's Comedy Dave, has worked his way from the backrooms of BBC radio to the biggest breakfast show on the airwaves and has a story to tell. He's played Glastonbury - twice - he's had his ear licked by Dave Grohl and he's written more 'Car Park Catchphrases' than you can shake a stick at.Dave's first attempt at being a proper writer is a collection of his stories, misadventures, songs, anecdotes and pictures from his phone all linked together in a far from tedious way. Less Lord of the Rings and more 'Lord of the Things', there's a lot of comedy value in Dave's excellent book.

How the simple commodity of coffee came to rewrite the experience of metropolitan lifeWhen the first coffee-house opened in London in 1652, customers were bewildered by this strange new drink from Turkey. But those who tried coffee were soon won over. More coffee-houses were opened across London and, in the following decades, in America and Europe.For a hundred years the coffee-house occupied the centre of urban life. Merchants held auctions of goods, writers and poets conducted discussions, scientists demonstrated experiments and gave lectures, philanthropists deliberated reforms. Coffee-houses thus played a key role in the explosion of political, financial, scientific and literary change in the 18th century.In the 19th century the coffee-house declined, but the 1950s witnessed a dramatic revival in the popularity of coffee with the appearance of espresso machines and the `coffee bar', and the 1990s saw the arrival of retail chains like Starbucks.
