Press clippings

My current favourite radio pairing is Mr Chairman (Chris Corcoran) and Rex the Caretaker (Elis James) on Social Club FM (Radio Wales, Friday), a very silly, very funny sitcom set in Britain's worst-performing radio station, broadcasting from a Welsh working men's club. They get into endless scrapes trying to outdo rivals Catholic Club FM and win listeners, but think they might be on to something with a new slot: Barry Island Discs. The first guest, a local PE teacher, chose eight records by Brotherhood of Man.
