Wayne’s 4 x 2 – The Courier, Dry Cleaning and More!
At 11:15 every Thursday morning we take a walk down the red carpet and into the studio booth to speak about the very best in entertainment reviews with our resident culture bloodhound Mr Wayne Massingham. He joined the Thursday Daily’s Stef Posthuma this week for more 4 x 2 reviews. The week we looked at:
