The cult BBC Radio 1 series hosted by Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, with Alistair Mcgowan. From October 1993.

The cult BBC Radio 1 series hosted by Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, first broadcast in October 1993 but recorded at the Pleasance Theatre during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival the previous August.

It's a showcase mix of sharp sketches and situations, stand up topical gags and banter. The rest of the series was taped before student audiences at university venues, including Plymouth, Lancaster and Belfast.

In the opening episode, Stewart berates Richard for his lack of street cred, Peter Baynham shares some unusual recipes and is Radio 1 really the youth-friendly station it pretends to be? There's also an early appearance from Alistair MacGowan - then best known for doing voices on Spitting Image. They're also joined by Rebecca Front.

Lee and Herring went to write and star in their successful TV transfer to BBC TWO in 1995.
