Happy Birthday BBC Local Radio
Last week, I was on The Now Show on BBC Radio 4, talking about 50 years of BBC Local Radio. You can catch the full thing on the Radio iPlayer/Podcast but someone working in the online team (who clearly really likes old jingles) has clipped together the best bits here...
We Need To Talk About... Tony LawAt 7.15pm on Sunday 29th October (and online for 30 days after that) you can catch a brand new sitcom pilot written by John-Luke Roberts and I for BBC Radio 4.
Tony Law: 21st Century Adventurer stars Adjoa Andoh, Nina Wadia, Freya Parker, John-Luke Roberts, Helen Lederer and Tony himself - who, brilliantly, came dressed for the part. Gosh, I hope he realised it was for radio.
I've also been working behind the scenes on a brand new show for Spotify Premium subscribers. We Need To Talk About... is presented by Jolyon Rubinstein and features panelists from comedy, music and journalism who pick through the week's news and try not to get too down about it all. At the time of writing there are 5 episodes available, with plenty more on the way.
Finally, Elis James' Pantheon Of Heroes was nominated for Best Entertainment Or Comedy Production at the Radio Academy's ARIAS 2017. We saw didn't win, but we got to go to Leeds for the ceremony - so here's some photos of Busted, looking like they are on the set of Tron.
