Hilarious.  Used to love listening to Mark Radcliffe while playing Sensible Soccer with my mate 1994-96.

Liked their breakfast and afternoon shows too - Fat Harry White etc.  And I had the Shirehorses cd LOL

Bird or Bloke!, Rabbi Lionel Blair etc.. dead funny.

 

Just finished Mark's book 'Showbusiness', about all the crap bands he's been in. Side splitting (and, unfortunately rang a few bells with me too!).

That is one of the funniest books I have ever read

Pete, I seem to remember their version of Eminem's 'Stan' - called 'Mark' - about a deranged fan of his radio show....and he 'rapped' it all in his manc accent!...brilliant.

 

Also, has anyone ever heard Vic Reeves version of Vienna? - unbelievable!

It was the only thing I ever used to listen to on radio 1. Unbelievably funny. Fat Harry White was inspired comedy and I used to love the Irish man who'd rather have a lorry. They were far too good for Radio 1 and when you ever had the misfortune to catch something like the Chris Moyles show, then you could see who really were the comedy masters and who were the pretenders. I always thought it was such a shame and a loss when they went their seperate radio ways instead of taking the show to it's natural home of Radio 2. Still, at least I never needed another excuse to listen to radio 1 and I never have since.

To paraphrase Mark and Lard, Chris Moyles should Stop and Mark and Lard should ........Carry On.

I find it strange that they've both ended up on BBC Six Radio, but not together. I still listen to Mark Radcliffe in the afternoon whenever I can.
