Why don't you listen to something really classical?

Well, I need advice and help again.

I'm moving to Florida on August 17th...and I'm driving. Which means I need something to listen to...and just recently it struck me that this would be a good time to listen to those League of Gentlemen radio programs...and Knowing Me Knowing You.

But those are the only two radio programs I own, and the trip will be about 18 hrs, so I need more.

My question is this...does anyone have the "Knowing Knowing Me Knowing You" documentary that is included with some versions of the CDs? Mine doesn't have it and I'd like to hear it.

ALSO I'd like to know if anyone out there would be kind enough to let me "borrow" (ahem) other radio programs to keep me entertained during the drive?

I'm open to suggestions...any contributions to my very, very, very long car trip will be much appreciated.


Do you require cassettes, or CDs?

Ah, good point. CDs. Though MP3 CDs also work in my stereo.

Ever heard of Lee and Herring, Phil? If not, you should. E-mail ianiansymes at the ol' gmail.com, and I'll send you stuff.

I've got some really good recentish I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue eps - the whole of the last series before the current one, in fact.

Includes Tony Hawks doing "Girlfriend In A Coma" to the tune of "Tiptoe Through The Tulips", which is possibly The Funniest Moment In The History Of Radio...

I wouldn't mind that clip, Seb...

Here you go. Usual Yousendit rules (it's up for 7 days or until 25 people download it, whichever occurs first) apply.

For those of you not familiar with ISAHAC, it's a radio panel game ("the antidote to panel games") featuring Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graham Garden, Barry Cryer and one other regular comedian (the likes of Tony Hawks - my favourite of the regulars - Jack Dee, Harry Hill, Andy Hamilton etc.). The aim is, obviously, less to score points and more to make people laugh. They always do a music round, and sometimes it consists of having to sing the lyrics of one song to the tune of another. Hence the Hawks clip above. Listen and enjoy. It's funnier if you know the original Smiths song, but even if you don't you can get the idea from the lyrics. It's Tony at his absolute best - he fits the lyrics to the tune so well you'd think it had been written to that tune. Even he can't help cracking up halfway through.

That is indeed absolutely amazing!

By Ian Symes on 21-07-05 @ 00:32

Awesome...emails sent.

It looks like nobody has Knowing Knowing Me Knowing You though? Oh well. Seb's program sounds great and I'm sure Ian's choice will be as well.

Any other offers? All would be well-appreciated, a-and I'll send you a postcard from FLORIDA! And you can...you know. Put it in the trash.

I've got a few episodes of "People Like Us", most of the recent series of "That Mitchell And Webb Sound" and some "The Very World of Milton Jones" (if you like puns), all of which amuse me greatly, if they're of any interest.

I'd very much recommend People Like Us.

By Ian Symes on 22-07-05 @ 14:21

Yeah, we're excellent.
