SHOWS WORKED ON:

MONDAY SHOW (2015-present – Mondays, 10-11.30pm)

The graveyard shift of community radio – Monday nights. Myself and my equally idiotic buddies made a living room of the Room101 studio of that evening and thus it has stayed. Underwent a couple of changes in the process, beginning as Monday Night Mixtape, before becoming variantly known as Wall of Mouths, Night Show, SHOW and, eventually, MONDAY SHOW (all-caps, no preposition).

No formal genre, no real remit, just good tunes, attempts at off-kilter discussion and general absurdism. Currently presented and produced by former regular guest James Fitzgerald.
