David Quantick's One (Radio 4, Wednesday) is a collection of sketches, each in a single voice, all unrelated to each other. Once you give up trying to make sense of what's going on, some of them are very good. This week's highlight, read in the cadences of the shipping forecast, began "and now, with the time coming up to 10 years later, it's the Britpop forecast". Oasis, Blur and Supergrass all got a mention, building to the conclusion: "Sleeper. What was that one? Fading rapidly. Manic Street Preachers. Still going. Amazingly. Menswear. Reforming. Gales of laughter later."
