Emailed my mates who saw it in Edinburgh and emailing someone else to see when Ralfe Band are playing. I really hope they don't clash *prays*

Radio show

Hi, I just wondered if any of you had heard of a radio show that David Reed and Humphrey Ker are meant to be in. It was on BBC Radio Scotland on Friday, "Coming Up Next" it was called. I think the episode is on BBC iplayer. I missed it myself, but I thought someone else may have heard it?

Thanks for the info. I've just tried to listed to it on Iplayer but they've cocked it up, it's playing a new programme instead of the show. At least it was only the first episode. The 2nd goes out this Friday at 6.10 on BBC Scotland so hopefully I'll be able to listen to that one.

I've not been able to listen to it either Tara it was on too early for me to listen to it live and when I've tried on iplayer something else always plays.
I got my tickets for the If.com show yesterday managed to get front row but only after a bit of haggling, the tickets they were offering me were row J to start with.

The Dreadfuls are recording a spoof of Guy Fawkes. The show will be recorded on Monday 12th October at 7.15pm at Broadcasting House. The show will be broadcast on the 5th November.
Radio 4’s often heavyweight Afternoon Play is being given over to sketch group the Penny Dreadfuls for a spoof history of Guy Fawkes.

From Chortle:

"The trio of David Reed, Humphrey Ker and Thom Tuck will be joined by other actors for the 45-minute show, which will go out on November 5.

The Edinburgh Fringe stars have previously written and performed two series of the Victorian-themed Brothers Faversham for Radio 7.

Meanwhile, stand-up Andy Zaltzman has also landed a four-part Radio 4 series, in which he promises a comic history of the past ten years.

Other comics will join him in Andy Zaltzman’s History Of The Third Millennium, which promises a mix of ‘stand-up, sketches, facts and blatant lies’ to examine the major events and trends of the last decade.

Zaltzman has co-written and hosted the Radio 4 shows Political Animal and The Department and The Times’s satirical podcast The Bugle, all with Daily Show correspondent John Oliver.

Free tickets for the recordings of both Zaltman’s and the Penny Dreadfuls’ shows have been released – see our free tickets page for details."

I applied for tickets for this. Has anyone else heard yet whether they got tickets?
