and welcome to the Chuffer Dandridge website. This site currently features all of Chuffer's diaries and Chuffer's Wogan e-mails, and has additional features added and updated on a regular basis. There's plenty of interactivity and closer looks at the supporting cast of the diaries. You can also find dedicated pages for most of the characters that populate Chuffer's crazy world.

If you want to hear a few of Chuffer's best bits from Wake Up To Wogan go to the Chuffer Wogan Snippets page. There are also now snippets on the most recent Wogan e-mail pages, just click on one of the links to the left to read the e-mails and listen to one of the readings.

The Random Diary Entry has moved to the Chuffer's Wogan Chums page, so there's always something new to see there.

Of course you can still access all the diaries through the links on the right of this page, so you can catch up on missed days and see all the photos from Chuffer's long and varied career.

Pauly Walters

Paul "Pauly" Walters passed away in October of 2006 following a long illness. Pauly (or Dr Wally) produced the award-winning Wake Up To Wogan show until his illness was diagnosed in November 2005. Even after that he continued to choose the music for the programme. Anyone who listened to the show will cherish his gentle wit and the joyful banter he shared with Terry, Deadly, Boggy and Fran. He was very supportive of Chuffer, for which we are very grateful.

Cheery pip, Pauly.
