I’ve produced programmes, short features and trails for over 15 years across all the major BBC radio networks including BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra and the BBC World Service and the Sony award winning Prison Radio Association. Most recently I produced a 3 hour Chris Morris retrospective for BBC Radio 4 Extra called Raw Meat Radio.  You can hear it here.  And here’s a lovely review.

I write, edit, mix and produce all my own stuff and have my own studio at home so can record and edit remotely.  I am always looking for good radio storytelling and features ideas .

It’s Your Funeral

I asked some of my favourite comics what songs they’d like played at their funeral for a series of shorts on BBC Radio 4 Extra.  Like a sort of Desert Island Deaths.
