Radio Review:1 July
Interviewing Boris Johnson on Radio 4’s The World At One (weekdays, 1pm), Martha Kearney sprang on him an archive clip where he extolled the virtues of welcoming Turkey into ‘an expanded European Union’ as a restoration of ‘that grand old Roman unity’....
Radio Review: 24 June
These days, the word ‘surreal’ increasingly means random. Many self-appointed surrealists seem to try far too hard to come up with their odd juxtapositions. The pioneer surrealists, however, tended far more to be creatures of instinct, to whom the...
Radio Review: 17 June
It was the presence of Peter Serafinowicz that made me listen to The World Of Simon Rich (R4, Thursdays, 11pm). That and the fact that Rich was billed as ‘one of the funniest short-story writers of his generation’. Quite something to live up to, and...
Radio review: 10 June
Writing a decent intro isn’t always easy. Some weeks writing this column, the opening paragraph is written last. So, I have a lot of tolerance when a clunker gets through. However, I cannot permit the monstrosity I heard on You And Yours (Radio 4,...
Radio Review: 3 June
I was delighted and amused last weekend to hear Graham Norton (Radio 2, Saturdays, 10am) come out of a record by questioning why it was being played on Radio 2. ‘Is it on the playlist?’ he enquired of his producer, Malcolm Prince, making it quite clear...
Radio Review: 27 May
On Eurovision Saturday (14 May), I found myself preparing for the revels by listening to Jazz Line-Up (R3, Saturdays, 5pm) in the kitchen. I was so enjoying Sebastian Scotney’s report on the connections between British jazz and folk music that I...
Radio Review: 20 May
There has recently been a very welcome renaissance of interest in the architectural critic Ian Nairn, who died in 1983. A BBC Four documentary and his own superb 1970s TV work on iPlayer led to reprints of his books. I can’t visit the capital without...
What are you working on at the moment? We are [with chef partner Dave Myers] exploring the world of chicken. Takes a lot of pluck! When were you at your happiest? The first time we were invited to demo at the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC in the summer...
Radio Review: 13 May
It’s rare for me to listen to an Afternoon Drama on Radio 4. Possibly an embarrassing admission for a radio critic, but there you go. Sometimes even the ones that sound promising are turned off after five minutes. Even if the idea and the script are up...
Killer heels
I have a wardrobe full of high heels, most of which I rarely wear these days, largely because I seem to have lost the ability to walk in them. The last time I wore some seriously high heels was at a ballet gala in New York. I had a navy chiffon dress...
What are you working on at the moment? We’re [Dave and Simon King] busy exploring the world of chicken. Takes a lot of pluck! When were you at your happiest? The first time we were invited to demo at the BBC Good Food Show at the NEC in the summer of...
Radio Review: 6 May
A long-departed and much-missed friend of mine, the jazz writer Kevin Henriques, used to describe himself on his business cards as a ‘boulevardier’. I thought it an enviable status and, ever since, I’ve fancied myself as a bit of a boulevardier,...
Radio Review: 29 April
When things go wrong in modern life, the search for someone to blame begins almost immediately. Something must be done, heads must roll, etc. Next Tuesday on Radio 4 at 8pm, The Blame Game is about whether heads always have to roll. Baroness...
Radio Review: 22 April
Since it is a television programme, I haven’t been able to mention the latest series of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle on BBC2, which has been required viewing as ever. Anyone who can get several minutes of breathless laughter out of me just by miming...
Radio Review: 15 April
Making Sunday lunch, I found myself listening to the 6 Music Playlist compiled by Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper of US group Mercury Rev. It was one of those unexpected pleasures you chance upon when you leave a radio on the same station for hours....
Book reviews: 15 April
OUT NOW UNEXPECTED ISRAEL: STORIES YOU NEVER READ IN THE MEDIA by Ruth Corman (Gefen Publishing House, £29.50; offer price, £25) Beautifully illustrated with photographs by the author, Unexpected Israel brings to life a rich cast of characters that you...
Radio Review: 8 April
I think the callers to Iain Lee’s new show on talkRADIO (weekdays, 10pm-1am) might be the exception to my rule that no one who wants to call a radio phone-in should be allowed to do so. The chap claiming to have a hotline to Miley Cyrus was my...
Radio Review: 1 April
Perhaps surprisingly, I owe my ardent love of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band to former Radio 1 DJ and composer of the Ukip Calypso, Mike Read. One morning, 30-odd years ago, he played on his breakfast show The Intro And The Outro (‘Looking very relaxed,...
Radio Review: 18 March
Listening to the radio on a Sunday morning requires me to do a certain amount of retuning. When the peerless Paddy O’Connell finishes Broadcasting House (Radio 4, Sundays, 10am), I have to skedaddle before the massed accordions of Ambridge herald the...
Radio Review: 11 March
The Today programme did me a useful service on 2 March. By bringing Toby Young on at 8.55am, it ensured that I had turned the radio off seven minutes before Midweek (Radio 4, Wednesdays, 9am) started, sparing me 45 minutes of forced jollity and Libby...
