TV Cream

A bit of business

Our radio rocks! With laughter!

Tim Worthington's six form common room radio, yesterday
Fun At One by Tim WorthingtonAnother week, and another TV Cream-related book hits the internet – and we turn our wallpaper stripey in celebration! This time it’s Tim Worthington’s Fun At One! A history of Radio 1 comedy, if you can believe such a thing could exist.

Read more about the book at Tim’s FAO website, and listen to Tim yakking about it with his good pal Ben here and here. Finally, buy the book here (one person has already rated it five stars – probably Tim’s good pal Ben).

Or, alternatively, you could win an eBook copy, sent directly to you by Mr TJ Worthington himself. How? All you have to do is answer the following poser…

Who were the hosts of Radio Tip Top?

Send your answer to The closing date is Tuesday, October 9th, 2012, at which point Tim will contact the winners directly and furnish them with their ‘ePrize’. Dunno how many winners we’re going to select – that’s up to Tim.

NB. Tim Worthington will not enter into personal correspondence over the virtues or otherwise of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle.

    I had a stereo radio/cassette like that in the eighties, made by Panasonic and which could pick up on short wave radio stations in Australia and Japan.
