Paperback: $11.72
Ships in 3-5 business days
(4 Ratings)
Fun At One is the first complete history of comedy on BBC Radio 1. Launched in 1967, the BBC’s pop music service provided an outlet for comics who struggled to get exposure elsewhere, from... More > the humorous disc jockeys of the late sixties and early seventies, through to edgy standup comedians in the late eighties, and more than one whose act defies description even today. Fun At One traces the story of comedy on Radio 1 from its launch to more recent experiments with podcasting and streaming video. Along the way it covers Kenny Everett, Rawlinson End, Adrian Juste, Lenny Henry, Victor Lewis-Smith, The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Lee & Herring’s Fist Of Fun, The Chris Morris Music Show, Mark & Lard, Blue Jam and much more besides, not to mention – of course – Smashie & Nicey. Fun At One is an essential addition to any library, but particularly one that’s had a large shotgun hole blasted in it by Sir Henry Rawlinson.< Less

Higher Than The Sun is the story of four albums released by Creation Records late in 1991. It’s a story that starts with a compilation tape, and ends with a jaw-dropping act of career suicide.... More > In between, someone gets chased by a cow. It’s a story of wild studio experimentation, demolished genre boundaries, audacious licensing deals and photos of french footballers. It’s a story that involves such fondly-remembered and long-forgotten names as House Of Love, Ride, Denim, Flowered Up, Fabulous and Adorable. And takes in Brian Cant, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, and someone playing guitar inside a tent.

From Every Loser Wins to Awesome Dood!, the story behind every single released by BBC Records And Tapes. Between 1970 and 1990, BBC Records And Tapes released almost three hundred singles, ranging... More > from some of the best known theme tunes in television history, to full-length versions of ones that nobody had even asked for a short version of to begin with. Along the way they also put out one-off oddities by everyone from up-and-coming folkies to the sound of someone hitting a phone. Possibly the most bafflingly diverse catalogue of singles ever issued, it's a fascinating indication of what really was popular - and sometimes unpopular - with viewers at the time. Top Of The Box tells the story behind each of these singles, taking in familiar names, cult artists and obscure bafflements alike, and including the likes of Simon May, Nick Berry, Brown Sauce, The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and of course Keith Harris & Orville. So many singles by Keith Harris & Orville. Including one that wasn't even released...< Less
