Used to be on R4.

Deayton, Helen Lederer, and some others.

Will it be released on BBC-CD, BBC? I'd buy it.

It's been repeated recently on R4, and apparently it's now to be heard on BBC7 as well. Check the BBC website, no doubt they will tell.

I agree that this was probably the funniest radio I've ever heard. I loved the Radio Active Rep. Co. and their hilarious misreading of seemingly innocent scripts. Way ahead of its time, and simply using radio to its best advantage.

I went up to London to see one edition being recorded ... somewhere near Eros I think, on Regent Street maybe ... I seem to remember going down some stairs into a basement but that could be the Dog and Duck in Cardiff.
