Feed The Wurzels

In 2004, The Bush and Troy Show recorded a parody of the Band Aid track Do They Know it's Christmas? to coincide with Band Aid 20. "Feed The Wurzels" featured vocals from weather presenter Richard Angwin, Scrumpy and Western band The Wurzels, pornographic actress Cathy Barry, actor Tony Robinson and folk singer Fred Wedlock, along with the show's team. The song was available in CD format from the GWR FM studio or as a download on the station's website, with all proceeds going to charity.

Peter Crouch In Lederhosen

Bush and Troy released this song in Summer 2006, to coincide with England being in the FIFA World Cup in Germany. It featured impersonations of David Beckham and Wayne Rooney, as well as vocals from The Wurzels and music from members of Colston's Swing Band.

In December 2007, The Bush and Troy Show unveiled their second Christmas song, a parody of Fairytale of New York. Contributors included local footballers Steve Phillips and Louis Carey, from rival teams Bristol Rovers F.C. and Bristol City F.C..

Controversies

Paulina's Video

On Monday 25th June 2007, Andy Bush and Paris Troy announced they had a secret video of Paulina pole dancing. After a lengthy argument they decided to put it on the GWR FM website, as soon as this happened Paulina walked out on the show, leaving Bush and Troy to finish the show themselves. The video subsequently received 11000 hits.

The following day, Bush and Troy were banned from being on air, and Paulina came in for an interview to tell Bristol how much she was upset. Numerous people rang in and text in with suggestions for Paulina to take her revenge on the lads.

On Wednesday 27th June 2007, Paulina got her revenge by making Bush and Troy pole dance dressed in women’s clothing and she then uploaded it to onto the GWR FM website.

anta's Arrest

In December 2007, one of the GWR Bush and Troy Team, Ryan Williams 20, along with Johnny Dawson 23, was dressed as Santa Claus, spraying fake snow onto bus stops and electricity boxes around the centre of Bristol. Police issued Williams with an on-the-spot fine of £80, which the station subsequently paid.
