Some time ago I had the privilege to appear on The Harry and Edna Show on the Wireless, they just sent me a link to a podcast of the show which I was delighted to receive and prompted me to answer the question; “Why Lord Joe Wells?”
During the course of the show I was asked why I have the title Lord Joe Wells and as they had forgotten or we went off on another topic before I regaled the story which may ring true with others who have been adopted.
I was adopted when I was one year old and had wonderful parents but one always wonders; where do I come from and will one day The Marquis of Bath turn up declaring that he is my birth father whilst showing me round the family estate with the promise, “Berkshire, my boy; one day it will be yours!”
Friends of mine at the time joined in the fun and as I used to live in Woodford would often call me Lord Wells of Woodford, which as I am a fairly honest man and not one for deceit necessitated the purchase of a Title from the wartime fort in the Thames estuary, otherwise known as The Principality of Sealand, as Harry guessed correctly.
The Harry and Edna show usually plays vintage forties music and discusses matters relating to the vintage scene, however the podcast omits the music but should you wish to listen to their show complete with music, which I would thoroughly recommend you will easily find them with an interweb search.
For those of you interested in purchasing any of my books you can find them down the right hand side of this page, if you are viewing on a computer or if you fiddle about if you are young and using a telephone, failing that here is a link to Amazon where you will find them all very reasonably priced. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1546632800&sr=8-1

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
