London, 22 November 1993: An event of such earth-shattering proportions that, according to veteran DJ David Nice, "it was to quite literally shatter the earth to its very proportions". For it was on that day that Dave "Nicey" Nice and his right-hand man Mike "Smashie" Smash left Radio Fab FM.

This retrospective "progumentary" takes Smashie and Nicey back over their ground-breaking careers, from the heady heydays on the high seas with pirate Radio Geraldine in the 60s, through the launch of Radio Fab in 1967, the highs and lows of the 70s (Nicey's Deptford Draylons commercial, the break-up of Smashie's marriage to Tessa Smash) to the present day.
